Laparoscopy, also commonly known as diagnostic laparoscopy, is a surgical diagnostic procedure used to analyse the organs in the midsection of abdomen. This procedure is relatively low risk, is minimally invasive and requires only a small incision.

Diagnostic laparoscopy may be recommended to look at the outside of the uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, and internal pelvic area. If an abnormal condition is detected during the diagnostic procedure, operative laparoscopy or operative hysteroscopy can often be performed to correct it at the same time, avoiding the need for a second surgery.

 Indications for Laparoscopy

  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine fibroids and other structural abnormalities
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Adhesions (scar tissue)
  • Ectopic pregnancy.
  • Clipping of fallopian tubes in case of Hydrosalpinx.
  • A Laparoscopy is usually performed when tests don’t provide enough information or insight for a proper and accurate diagnosis.

 How is it performed?

Laparoscopy is usually performed between Day 7- day 10 of the menstrual cycle. Laparoscopy is usually performed on an outpatient basis under general anaesthesia. After the patient is under anaesthesia, a telescope is placed through the navel. Carbon dioxide gas is used to fill the abdomen, which pushes the abdominal wall away from the internal organs and decreases the risk of injury to surrounding organs such as the bowel, bladder, and blood vessels. Occasionally, alternate sites may be used for the insertion of the laparoscope based upon physician experience or the patient’s prior surgical or medical history. These incisions are typically small (usually less than 1 inch in length). If no abnormalities are noted at this time, one or two stitches close the incisions. If abnormalities are discovered, diagnostic laparoscopy can become operative laparoscopy

 Side Effects

  • fevers or chills
  • abdominal pain that becomes more intense over time
  • redness, swelling, bleeding, or drainage at the incision site continuous nausea or vomiting
  • persistent cough
  • shortness of breath
  • inability to urinate
  • Giddiness


Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure performed through small incisions using a camera and specialized instruments. At Felicity IVF and Fertility Center, we offer laparoscopic surgery as a safe and effective option for diagnosing and treating various fertility issues.

Yes, laparoscopic surgery is considered safe when performed by experienced surgeons.

At Felicity IVF and Fertility Center, we prioritize patient safety and provide expert care during laparoscopic procedures.

The advantages of laparoscopic surgery include smaller incisions, less postoperative pain, faster recovery, and reduced risk of complications compared to traditional open surgery. At Felicity IVF and Fertility Center, we specialize in laparoscopic techniques to provide patients with optimal outcomes and improved fertility.

IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) and laparoscopy are different procedures used to address fertility issues. While IVF focuses on assisted reproduction, laparoscopy is a surgical technique used to diagnose and treat underlying causes of infertility. Depending on individual circumstances, one may be recommended over the other or used in combination. At Felicity IVF and Fertility Center, we offer both IVF and laparoscopic surgery to address diverse fertility needs.

Yes, laparoscopy can improve fertility by diagnosing and treating conditions such as endometriosis, ovarian cysts, fibroids, and blocked fallopian tubes that may hinder conception. By addressing these issues, laparoscopy can enhance natural fertility or increase the success of assisted reproductive techniques like IVF. At Felicity IVF and Fertility Center, we provide personalized care to optimize fertility outcomes through laparoscopic surgery.

The success rate of laparoscopy for infertility varies depending on factors such as the underlying cause of infertility and the specific procedure performed. However, laparoscopic surgery has been shown to improve fertility outcomes for many patients by addressing treatable conditions. At Felicity IVF and Fertility Center, we strive to achieve the best possible results for our patients undergoing laparoscopic procedures.

Yes, laparoscopy can be beneficial for conceiving by correcting anatomical abnormalities or removing barriers to fertility. By addressing conditions such as endometriosis, fibroids, or adhesions, laparoscopic surgery can improve reproductive function and increase the chances of natural conception or success with assisted reproductive techniques like IVF. At Felicity IVF and Fertility Center, we offer comprehensive fertility evaluations and laparoscopic treatments to help patients achieve their conception goals.

The fertility rate after laparoscopy can vary depending on individual factors such as age, overall health, and the specific cause of infertility. However, many patients experience improved fertility and increased chances of conception following successful laparoscopic surgery to address underlying fertility issues. At Felicity IVF and Fertility Center, we provide personalized care and support to optimize fertility outcomes for our patients undergoing laparoscopic procedures.
