Pain is a major barrier to successful outpatient hysteroscopy. Multiple factors can cause pain during the procedure including patient factors such as cervical stenosis and anxiety and procedural factors such as hysteroscope diameter and operative procedures. Pain relief strategies tailored to needs for Hong Kong women may enhance patient satisfaction and the success rate of outpatient hysteroscopic procedures.
