Hysteroscopy

Hi, I had a hysteroscopy three days ago due to having a bleed. I hadn't had a period for over 17 years and all of a sudden I had what could be classed as a period, including the cramps. This lasted a full week then stopped. My GP referred me to see a gynaecologist on Monday who said he couldn't see anything and I shouldn't be worried but he wants to see me again in 2 months. He said if I had another bleed before that I should call him and get a sooner appointment. I was obviously bleeding after the hysteroscopy but I didn't ask how long I would bleed for. I thought it had stopped yesterday but has started again today and now I don't know whether I should be calling him again or if the bleed is related to the hysteroscopy. Has anyone had this procedure done and if so can you tell me how long you bled for afterwards? Thank you

  • Hi there,

    It's not uncommon to continue bleeding after a hysteroscopy. However, if the bleeding is becoming heavier or continues after a few days, we suggest that you contact your hysteroscopy team for advice, as you may need medication to slow the bleeding down. If things are no better by tomorrow (Friday) lunchtime, can we suggest that you telephone the team for advice so that you do not have to speak to an emergency service over the weekend, who won't have your notes and history in front of them?

    Wishing you well,

    Team Eve

  • Thank you for your advice which I will follow up tomorrow.
