Who Needs a Hysteroscopy?

When you’re struggling with issues that affect your uterus, it’s not always possible to uncover the underlying cause with a manual examination. To discover the root of the problem, board-certified OB/GYN Asia Mohsin, MD, at Progressive Women’s Health in Friendswood, Texas, may recommend a minimally invasive procedure called hysteroscopy

A hysteroscopy uses a flexible tube with a light on the end, called a hysteroscope, to examine the inside of your cervix and uterus to help diagnose the cause of your issue. Dr. Mohsin can also treat different conditions using the same device, which guides tiny tools to the problem areas.
