If your Infertility Specialist, is unable to determine the cause of infertility through blood and other diagnostic tests, then he/she might suggest any of the two surgical procedures- Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy determines the underlying cause of infertility. In Hegde Fertility, the procedure allows the infertility specialist to see inside the uterus and the other helps to know the outside of the uterus, the ovaries, and fallopian tubes.
The surgical procedure you need to undergo completely depends on your medical history and symptoms. In few cases, both procedures are carried out simultaneously to determine the cause of infertility.
The procedure allows your infertility specialist to view the pelvic organs through a small incision in the belly button. General anesthesia is given to the patients and abdomen is inflated with gases so as to insert a long tube with a lighted camera. The Infertility Specialist can determine the condition of the pelvic organs by viewing the captured images. The major organs include the outside of the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes. This procedure can diagnose endometriosis, fibroids, adhesions, hydrosalpinx, cysts, and infections, which may be resulting in infertility. Laparoscopy for infertility can detect and fix the problems and increases your chances of conceiving. The procedure can be performed in 1 to 3 hours and patients can resume to their activities within a week.
Hysteroscopy allows your infertility specialist to view the organs inside the uterus. In this procedure, the cervix is dilated and a thin long tube with a camera is placed in the uterus. Your doctor can view the lining of the uterus and look for adhesions, endometriosis, polyps, fibroids, septum and infections. The treatment can identify and resolve any problems leading to infertility. The process takes 30 to 45 minutes and patients can resume to their duties within 2 days.
The following are a few complications of laparoscopy for infertility:
- Minor bleeding or bruising around the skin incisions
- Infections or allergic reactions to medications
- Urine retention or formation of clots in the legs
- In rare cases, the procedure results in damage to the abdomen organs such as urinary bladder, intestines, uterus or some blood vessels
- Excessive bleeding and formation of hematomas near the incisions
