Laparoscopy for Infertility
Laparoscopy as the name suggests uses the help of a laparoscope to view the internal uterine cavity and associated reproductive organs. A laparoscope is a thin long tube that has a camera attached to its end. The procedure starts with a general anesthetic to ease the pain and discomfort during the process. The abdomen is inflated with air to get a clear view of the internal organs. The surgeon then makes a small incision in the abdomen and inserts the laparoscope to get an enlarged image of the internal cavity. The Infertility Specialist can determine the condition of the pelvic organs by viewing the captured images. The major organs include the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes. This procedure can diagnose the cause of infertility and detect the presence of endometriosis, fibroids, adhesions, hydrosalpinx, cysts, and infections. Laparoscopy for infertility can detect and fix the problems and increases your chances of conceiving. The procedure can be completed in one hour and patients can resume to their daily activities within a week.
Hysteroscopy allows your infertility specialist to view the lining of the uterus with a viewing tool known as hysteroscope. Hysteroscope has a camera attached to its end and is connected to a screen to view enlarged picture of the internal uterine cavity. In this procedure, the surgeon introduces a speculum to open the vaginal walls and the cervix. Then a hysteroscopy is placed at the entrance of the vagina and pushed inside through the cervix to reach the uterus. The infertility specialist views the lining of the uterine cavity to diagnose or detect the presence of any fibroids, cysts or infections. This procedure takes around 30 minutes and patients can leave the hospital on same day and can resume to daily activities within a week.
After the surgery patients may experience some complications as follows:
- Minor bleeding or scars around the incision
- Infections or allergic reactions to medications
- Clot formations in the legs
- In some cases damage to internal abdominal organs
