Hysteroscopy: excellent treatment when done with respect & compassion for patient, without financial and convenience issues & outdated attitudes to women getting in the way. A thread:

#Anaesthetics have been available since the century before last.

Men are given local or general anaesthetic for #prostatecancer biopsies as a matter of course.

So why do women continue to be subjected to #gynaecological torture? Misogyny in action?
Hysteroscopy is SURGERY - anaesthesia, relaxation and pain management should be the norm, not the exception.

And as it's surgery, involving cutting and blood, doing it in an office with patient & #gynaecologist in their outdoor clothes is a hygiene disaster waiting to happen.

Quick tips for small #polypectomy
Smaller the polyp, longer the drama! But why?
Here are my 10 tips, share yours!
1. Ask: is this necessary?
2. Take it when you see it, may never find it again!
3. Position at 6 O' clock
4. Don't move around while waiting for snare, don't lose!
5. Keep your eye on the polyp, don't even blink
6. Clear the fluid above and below
7. Choose a small cold snare, don't open it too much
8. If struggling with position, try cold biopsy forceps instead
9. If snare is slipping, deflate the colon. Don't lift!
10. Check if trap is on!
