@kpm77 Thank you! I am in Ontario, Canada, and the procedure will be done in a clinic - not in a hospital. Would I be put to sleep in a clinic? I have been given no instructions for preparation before the procedure.

I would have preferred to have it done in a hospital, but no hospitals in my area perform hysteroscopies.

@rashida I had a hysteroscopy as a same-day procedure in the hospital. I also had anesthesia so I didn't feel anything but I was uncomfortable when I woke up because air is introduced into the uterus in order to inflate it a bit to allow the doctor to look.

May I ask why you hare having the hysteroscopy?

Also, can you call the doctor's office and ask if you will be given a sedative or light anesthesia before the procedure? If none is planned you can definitely ask for that. The more you know about the procedure ahead of time the less anxious you might feel.
