The role of advanced endoscopy in improving IVF success

Every effort must be made to maximize the chances of success in an IVF treatment. Failure of IVF treatment is a mental, physical and financial disaster. Maximum success is possible by thorough preparation of the couple prior to undertaking treatment. It is vital to define the exact cause of the infertility and to explain this to the couple along with the possible treatment options. Various tests are available which include blood tests of the couple, semen tests, ultra sonography and endoscopy. Endoscopy includes Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy.
Hysteroscopy involves assessment of the inside of the womb. Laparoscopy involves assessment of the pelvic organs and the upper tummy using a telescope.
