I have had some abnormal spotting after being in menopause for nearly six years. I attended an appointment today for a consultant to obtain an endometrial biopsy. Another tool (for the want of a better word) was used which was the size of a straw. Unfortunately, the consultant could not pass the instrument through my cervix. My cervix is too small, so now I am being referred for a hysteroscopy, where I shall have a local anaesthetic on my cervix so that the consultant can pass the hysteroscope through to the uterus.
I have had to sign a consent form for this procedure to be carried out and am just a tad freaked out at all the possible complications. Furthermore, I stupidly looked on the internet at images for this procedure. I am now feeling that I may not be able to go through with this procedure.
Has anyone else had this procedure and what can I expect? Any reassurance will be very much appreciated.
