    I was a Registered Nurse who was still practising when I had my outpatient hysteroscopy, so understood the concept of informed consent, which only much later became clear that I had not given. I had previously had one under a GA at the same time as a laparoscopy, so it had not occurred to me to research the subject as I had wrongly assumed that I would be given accurate information regarding the procedure. I was made to feel as if it was my fault for passing out during this procedure, that my reaction to unbearable, excruciating pain was as rare as hen's teeth. I was not treated with respect.

I have not had children and was post menopausal at the tie of my barbaric procedure. I also had really bad period pains from day one, all of which are contraindications for OPH.
