  • They are said to improve the probability of clinical pregnancy.

Surgical Procedures offered at Fertility Point

  • Laparoscopy

    Laparoscopy in an advanced minimally invasive surgical technique that enables the specialist to view inside the abdomen. The procedure is done using a laparoscope which is a flexible tube fitted with a telescopic camera that is inserted into the abdomen through a small incision made in the belly button. This makes it possible for the specialist to evaluate the reproductive organs and check for any abnormalities in the abdomen that can interfere with a woman’s ability to conceive. Abnormalities that can be dealt with using this procedure include pelvic adhesions, uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts.

  • Diagnostic and Operative Hysteroscopy

    This minimally invasive ultrasound procedure is used to view the inside of the uterus so as to determine whether a woman has any abnormalities in the uterus of the fallopian tubes that can hinder or interfere with pregnancy. The postmenstrual proliferative phase (after the period to ovulation when the uterine walls build up) is the best time to perform this procedure.

    Abnormalities that can be detected through hysteroscopy include uterine septum, submucous fibroids and endometrial polyps.

    If any abnormalities are detected, operative hysteroscopy can be used to treat them. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and is performed under general anaesthesia.

What to Know and to Expect

  • It is common to feel some pain and discomfort after these procedure, however, it should be minimal for the laparoscopy.

  • The discomfort can take a few days to clear and taking peppermint tea or walking around can help to relieve the discomfort.

  • In rare situations, some patients may experience complications like fever, heavy vaginal bleeding and infection where the incision was done. If you experience such complications, inform your doctor or specialist to advise you on what steps to take.

  • A hysteroscopy cannot be carried out on a pregnant woman, therefore, you should have a pregnancy test done two week before and use contraception in between.

  • For a woman who has been diagnosed with fibroids, they can be given medication to reduce their size making it easier to remove the fibroids.
