I was pleased to join with Lyn Brown MP to move a debate on hysteroscopy in Westminster Hall.
Hysteroscopy is an invasive procedure which is used to investigate the uterus on occasion of heavy pleading, painful periods and infertility, amongst other things. It involves a hysteroscope being inserted into the uterus through the cervix.
It is a procedure which can cause considerable pain and trauma. Women undergoing such a procedure should be given appropriate advice for pain management, including the offer of a general anaesthetic. Too often women are barely given any advice at all causing significant harm.
We are demanding the application of risk management tools and advice of sufficient quality to enable women to make an informed choice as to how they wish to access this procedure if at all
For too long women have experienced poor treatment at the hands of medical professionals. I am determined to do all I can to make sure that the voices of women are properly heard and less harm is done.
