Diagnostic Laparosopy: Fertility Test

Posted Aug 30 2010 12:00am

Another way to check if you have fertility problem is by means of diagnostic laparoscopy. The doctor will be able to see the outside of the uterus, the fallopian tubes, ovaries, and pelvic cavity. The test will be in a hospital or outpatient care center because it is performed under general anesthesia. An instrument that works like a small telescope or camera is passed into the abdomen through a tiny incision below the navel. The procedure provides detailed information about the reproductive organs and can detect the presence of any scar tissue.At the time of the laparoscopy, the doctor may also examine the inside of the uterus using a different device. A hysteroscopy is performed in order to check the presence of tumors, scars, or any abnormalities within the uterus. It can also be performed as an in-office procedure.
