    Sorry for the experience you have suffered. Same happened to me. I did require a further investigation 2 years on but insisted on a GA. It is available to you, you just have to be firm with the care you expect to recieve. Best wishes, hope you feel better very soon.

    Thank you for your story. It's great to hear positive outcomes. The reason for my and others pain is we are post menopausal. The cervix closes/ narrows, when the hysterscope is forced through it causes severe pain, shock ect. Wish you well for your future. Xx

    Sorry peoples experiences terrified you. It certainly is not the aim. The aim is to inform you of the alternatives. Because you were forewarned you were able to express your preferences for pain relief. This has been sadly denied to so many including myself.

    It was covered on womens hour & there have been articles in the Daily Mail. Radio Shropshire also covered OPH. Please be aware that you do not have to pay for a GA if you need another Hysteroscopy, you are within your rights to request it. The RCOG patient information leaflet will give you more details.

    I attended a 2 week referral for post menapausal bleed stating I would require an out patient Hysteroscopy. I was not anxious despite knowing that it was to check for possible womb cancer. As the literature had described the procedure was like a smear test I had no concern. During the quick consultation I was informed biopsies were required but it would not be painful but may experience period like pain. The procedure started and a nurse was chatting away, hairdresser like chat, I thought it quiet irritating. I later discovered it is a distraction technique!! The consultant inserted a sp
