LAPROSCOPY FOR INFERTILITY
Laparoscopy is another medical procedure that can be used to diagnose and treat
infertility in women. This procedure involves the insertion of a thin, lighted tube called a laparoscope into the abdomen through a small incision near the navel.
During a laparoscopy, the doctor can examine the reproductive organs, including the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries, to look for any abnormalities that may be
affecting fertility. These abnormalities may include endometriosis, ovarian cysts,
adhesions, or other structural issues.
If any abnormalities are found during the laparoscopy, we may be able to treat them during the same procedure. For example, endometriosis can be removed, ovarian cysts can be drained, and adhesions can be released.
Laparoscopy is also considered a safe and minimally invasive procedure, and it can often be performed on an outpatient basis with minimal discomfort. However, like any medical procedure, there are some risks involved, including bleeding, infection, and injury to the abdominal organs.
