There are several conditions involving the female reproductive tract that can cause pain, discomfort and/or abnormal vaginal bleeding. Laparoscopy can be a very effective means for evaluating these conditions. Furthermore, depending on what is found, it may also be possible to treat the condition using a laparoscope.
It is impossible to list all of the possible conditions that could require exploration and possible treatment with a laparoscopy. However, common gynecological problems evaluated with a laparoscope include:
· Pelvic adhesions
· Ectopic pregnancy
· Pelvic or ovarian masses
· Infertility and sterilization
Your doctor will be able to describe to you the suspected reason for your symptoms and any abnormal findings associated with them. For your particular situation, your doctor would like you to hear about some of these possibilities that might be causing your symptoms.
