Treatment for Endoscopy Of Uterus
Endoscopy is a procedure where a thin, lighted tube (endoscope) is inserted into the uterus to examine it for infections, diseases or any abnormalities. The two frequently carried out endoscopy procedures are hysteroscopy and laparoscopy.
Hysteroscopy is the inspection of the uterine cavity by passing the endoscope through the cervix. It allows for the diagnosis of problems in the cavity of the uterus and also serves as a method for correction for most problems (operative hysteroscopy). Common conditions that can be treated through hysteroscopy are tumours like polyps, fibroids, abnormalities like septum, etc.
Laparoscopy involves placement of the endoscope in to the abdominal cavity, generally through the umbilicus to visualise the uterus, tubes, ovaries and the pelvis. The patency of the tubes is also checked at the same time by injecting a blue dye. Certain abnormalities like fibroids, Endometriosis, adhesions etc. can also be treated at the same time (operative laparoscopy).

Women are born with approximately 2 million eggs in their ovaries. Before a girl reaches puberty, about 11,000 eggs die every month. Thus, in her teenage years, a woman has only about 300,000 to 400,000 eggs available. From this point onwards, about 1000 eggs are utilised every month. This has nothing to do with any form of birth control, pregnancy, hormone production, health, lifestyle or nutritional supplements. Eventually, a woman reaches menopause when she has no viable eggs left.
PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) refers to a condition caused by hormonal imbalances. Women suffering from PCOS produce higher than normal amounts of male hormones. This affects ovulation and can result in irregular periods. In some cases, women suffering from PCOS may have irregular periods. This, in turn, can make it harder for these women to conceive. In fact, PCOS is one of the most common causes of female infertility.
