I have had a hysteroscopy and freaked myself out beforehand by reading things online and really wish I hadn’t. My first hysteroscopy where my doctor took a biopsy was less painful than some period pains I’ve experienced. Today I had my polyp removed no local anaesthetic used and it was more painful than the first procedure but bearable. I know everyone’s tolerance is different but I really over thought and worried about this procedure based on what I read online. I took paracetamol and ibroprufen beforehand which would have definitely helped so would advise anyone else having this to not freak out as I did, take pain relief beforehand and it’s over fairly quickly. For me I’m glad I didn’t have a general anaesthetic as at the moment with Covid you need to isolate etc and the pain was bearable as an outpatient. Hopefully this helps someone else who’s unsure.
