Laparoscopy may be used to diagnose infertility or to treat a fertility problem. 1  Laparoscopy is a surgical procedure that involves making one, two, or three very small cuts in the abdomen, through which the doctor inserts a laparoscope and specialized surgical instruments. How Laparoscopy helps Surgical Infertility Testing and Treatment Patients with unexplained infertility and normal hysterosalpingogram (HSG) findings following standard infertility screening tests usually undergo timing therapy that coordinates the time of ovulation and coitus, controlled ovarian hyperstimulation, or intrauterine insemination.

Examples of fertility problems that can be corrected with laparoscopy include removal of adhesions (scar tissue) from around the fallopian tubes and ovaries, opening of blocked tubes, removal ovarian cysts, and treatment of endometriosis. In certain situations, uterine fibroids can also be removed laparoscopically. A laparoscopy is usually done under general anesthesia in a surgical center or hospital, and most women go home the same day of the surgery.

Dr. Taraneh Gharib Nazem is Senior Fellow in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai/Reproductive Medicine Associates of New York. Laparoscopy for infertility is a minimally invasive surgical procedure in which a telescope-like instrument (laparoscope) with light and small camera allows the surgeon to examine the pelvic anatomy for causes of female infertility.

Laparoscopy can be diagnostic, assessing for causes of infertility in the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries. An operative laparoscopy involves surgical treatment for problems found during a diagnostic laparoscopy procedure, utilizing small surgical tools. Laparoscopy is a diagnostic tool used to detect possible conditions that could cause unexplained female infertility.

Using laparoscopy, the specialist is able to visually examine the internal reproductive system. Laparoscopy is a surgical procedure that involves insertion of a narrow telescope-like instrument through a small incision in the belly button. This allows visualization of the abdominal and pelvic organs including the area of the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries. What is laparoscopy used for in women with infertility?Laparoscopy for infertility.

Laparoscopy is a surgical procedure that allows a fertility doctor to see inside of the abdomen. In a female, the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries are located in the pelvis which is at the very bottom of the abdomen. Laparoscopy allows the fertility doctor to see abnormalities that might interfere with a woman’s ability to conceive a pregnancy. Minimally Invasive Laparoscopy Laparoscopy is a surgery performed for diagnosis and treatment of female infertility.

We use a thin, lighted tube (Laparoscope) fitted with a small camera that is inserted in an 1/2-3/4 inch incision in the abdomen or pelvic region to directly visualize infertility problems that may be occurring in a patient. Laparoscopyused to treat infertility is a minimally invasive surgery that uses a system containing a small camera and operating instruments to see the reproductive organs (ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus). The surgeon will make a minor incision in the abdomen to insert the camera that is used in the surgical procedure.

However, since laparoscopy is an invasive procedure requiring general anesthesia and is costly, it should be performed only if there is a substantial likelihood of either improving the prognosis for fertility or changing the course of treatment.

Some have suggested that laparoscopy should be omitted as part of the routine workup in otherwise unexplained infertility and that ovarian stimulation coupled with intrauterine insemination be tried first [83].

Many fertility specialists argue that if laparoscopy is not performed in the evaluation of infertile couples with normal ovulation, normal semen analysis, and patent fallopian tubes, many cases of endometriosis and ovarian adhesions will be misdiagnosed as unexplained infertility.

  • My surgery booked in 17 days from now n m beyond nervous.I watched your video and read most of the comments n gave me a bit idea. My case I don’t particularly know what is wrong as Gynaecologist couldn’t find anything so far apart from relatively small tissue growth ( upon asking she clarified it’s not Cyst) which according to medical science shouldn’t cause any issues. My bleeding is throughout the month and level of pain increasing so apparently this is the best way to look-into what is causing the issue. She emphasised this is not remove the tissue. I’m extremely nervous. The other related terms or issues or solutions are Rx of endometriosis, Hyshoscopy and endometrial biopsy Mirua
