The hysteroscope has a light and camera hooked to it so your doctor can see the lining (endometrium) on a video screen.The camera transmits a signal to a receiver so the doctor can see the inside of the uterus on a video screen.
The tip of the hysteroscope is put into your vagina and gently moved through the cervix into the uterus.
