Katy gynecologist explains the process of a diagnostic hysteroscopy

A hysteroscopy is a commonly used diagnostic tool in the field of gynecology. It is a procedure that uses a thin device that acts like a lighted telescope inserted into the vagina and projects the image onto a screen. This procedure gives the physician a clear view of the inside of the uterus which can help diagnose problems.

It is often used when a patient is experiencing heavy or abnormal uterine bleeding; however, it can also be used to remove lesions, determine the reason for multiple miscarriages, to locate an IUD, or to perform a sterilization.

Dr. Taryll Jenkins of Jenkins Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Medicine in Katy has performed this procedure many times. Here Dr. Jenkins explains the process:
  • Prior to the procedure the patient will be given local or general anesthesia
  • The cervix will be dilated in order to make the procedure easier
  • A speculum will be inserted into the vagina, and the hysteroscope will be placed through the cervix into the uterus
  • A saline fluid will be used to expand the uterus which allows Dr. Jenkins to see the lining of the uterus clearly
  • If a biopsy is necessary or if polyps or fibroids need to be removed, the instruments will be passed through the hysteroscope.

Following a hysteroscopy, the patient can go home and relax. If general anesthesia is used, she will need to be observed in the office until the medication wears off. Patients should expect to experience mild cramping and blood-tinged discharge following the procedure. However, symptoms such as fever, chills, and heavy bleeding are not expected. If a patient has any of the above symptoms, she should call Dr. Jenkins immediately.

Jenkins Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Medicine - reviews

Dr. Jenkins is a kind, professional and a Dr. Whom actually listens to his patients. He makes you laugh which makes you comftorable in the situation. He had my sons best interest at heart when I was in labor at 33 weeks. I'm a stuborn woman and did not want to be in the hospital on mothers day. I wanted to travel an hour away and yet, he stood his ground and did what's best. I'm truly grateful for the wonderdul care he provided and if I ever am with child again, Dr. Jenkins will be my choice again.
