Infertility refers to the biological inability of a couple to conceive after having regular and unprotected sex for 6-12 months. It can be because of male, female or both.
Infertility & Laparoscopy
There are various techniques and diagnostic tests available that can help to conclude the cause of infertility both in males and females. Laparoscopy is one such procedure that not only helps in establishing the diagnosis of various infertility related disorders but can also treat them simultaneously. It is a minimally invasive procedure that allows direct view of various reproductive organs like uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, other organs and the pelvic cavity in general. In fact conditions like endometriosis and pelvic adhesions are detectable only through laparoscopy. Other than this, the procedure allows detection of abnormalities like scar tissue, blocked fallopian tubes, PCOD, fibroid tumors and other abnormalities of the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries.

Laparoscopy for Diagnosis of causes of Infertility
The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia through a small incision below the belly button. A laparoscope (a thin, flexible tube with a camera at the end) is inserted into the abdomen and pelvis to look at the fallopian tubes, uterus and ovaries for conditions like endometriosis, scarring, blockages, and other irregularities of the uterus and fallopian tubes, or to take samples for diagnostic tests.
Advantages of Laparoscopy for Infertility Diagnosis & Treatment
- Laparoscopy enables the detection of defects such as scar tissue, endometriosis, fibroid tumors and other abnormalities of the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries.
- It is generally performed even if HSG shows the tubal blockage as often the HSG is not accurate.
- Both detection and treatment of abnormalities can be performed in a single procedure.
- Laparoscopic procedure not only diagnoses and resolves the abnormality but it also gives quicker recovery to the patient.
