The fight against female and male infertility consists of identifying the causes of the disease and its subsequent elimination (treatment). Modern medical methods for detecting infertility make it possible to determine the causes of the disease in 98% of cases. Next, a comprehensive examination of patients begins, including: clinical, endocrinological and endoscopic methods.
Laparoscopy (like hysteroscopy) is an effective way to deal with the causes of infertility and is prescribed in all cases when a further examination of a woman is impossible without clarifying the state of the internal genital organs. The effectiveness of laparoscopy is due to the fact that often the causes of infertility are:
- violation of the patency of the fallopian tubes,
- tumors of the appendages and uterus,
- congenital abnormalities in the development of organs.
Laparoscopy also allows you to identify any of these ailments in order to begin targeted treatment of infertility. In addition, laparoscopy is a minimally invasive method and allows you to perform correction of detected changes without major injuries. In particular, with the help of laparoscopy without special difficulties is carried out:
- cyst removal
- restoration of patency of pipes,
- dissection of adhesions, etc.
Often, laparoscopy is performed in conjunction with hysteroscopy: in this way it is possible to eliminate almost all of these problems without cesarean section or dissection of the uterine wall.
Laparoscopy has the following specifics:
- during the procedure, minimal incisions are made, the doctor uses tools of several millimeters, which eliminates serious injuries to organs and tissues,
- modern anti-adhesion gels are used for manipulation,
- during the operation, a complete sanitation of the internal organs is carried out using a hysteroscope,
- laparoscopic surgery involves the introduction into the small pelvis of barriers from adhesions, which effectively prevent their re-development.
The operation does not require suturing. Using miniature tools allows for one hospitalization to carry out several operations, if there is such a need. At the end of the operation, the patients on the first day are able to independently get up and move, eat. Extract from inpatient treatment is performed on the 6-7th day after surgery. After this, sex is contraindicated for a month. A woman should be regularly examined by the attending physician, undergo an ultrasound diagnosis. Ovulation stimulation, hormone therapy can be performed. If necessary, the patient is sent to IVF.
