How does laparoscopy enhance fertility?

Laparoscopy enables the identification of fertility issues that might otherwise escape detection, such as mild endometriosis and pelvic adhesions, which require surgical observation specifically through this procedure.

It's important to highlight that although laparoscopy is a surgical intervention, it typically entails a shorter recovery period compared to conventional surgeries. Patients undergoing this procedure often have the option to be discharged from the hospital on the same day.

Laparoscopy primarily serves to investigate and diagnose issues within the pelvic and abdominal areas, aiming to identify the source of pain or discomfort experienced in these regions. It is also commonly employed as a component of the diagnostic process for female infertility. Laparoscopy offers treatment options for conditions such as fibroids, endometriosis, and cysts, as well as procedures like hysterectomy and pelvic floor reconstruction surgery.

Role of Laparoscopy in Infertility

The surgical process entails making 3-5 small incisions on the abdomen. A laparoscope, equipped with a video camera for visual access, is inserted through one of these incisions. The surgeon utilizes the remaining incisions to pass small surgical instruments for addressing the medical concern.

How Is It Done?

  • Laparoscopy is performed in a hospital setting under general anesthesia.
  • Before your scheduled surgery, you will typically need to refrain from eating or drinking for at least eight hours, and you may also be required to take antibiotics.
  • Upon arrival at the hospital, you will be given an IV to administer fluids and medications to help you relax. The anesthesiologist will then place a mask over your face, and after inhaling a pleasant-smelling gas for a few minutes, you will drift off to sleep.
  • After the anesthesia has taken effect, the doctor will make a small incision around your belly button. Through this incision, a needle is used to fill your abdomen with carbon dioxide gas. This creates space for the doctor to visualize the organs and maneuver the surgical instruments.
  • Once your abdomen is filled with gas, the surgeon will insert the laparoscope to examine your pelvic organs. During this process, the surgeon may also take tissue samples for biopsy.
  • Occasionally, additional small incisions of two or three may be made for the insertion of other slender surgical instruments. These instruments are used to perform repairs or adjust the position of organs to enhance visibility during the procedure.
  • The surgeon will visually assess both the pelvic and surrounding abdominal organs. They will examine for the presence of cysts, fibroids, adhesions, connective tissue, and endometrial growths. Additionally, they will evaluate the shape, color, and size of the reproductive organs.
