When you consider getting surgical
infertility treatment, ask your doctor these questions.
How much experience do you have with microsurgical
techniques? This type of surgery in both men and women often requires
specialized training and experience.
Can my problems be
laparoscopy? Some problems with a woman's reproductive
tract can be corrected during laparoscopic testing. This testing doesn't require a hospital stay.
Fixing the problems with conventional abdominal surgery is more risky. It requires
longer recovery times. And it usually costs more.
What are my
chances of conceiving after surgery? This depends on the specific type of
problem being treated. It also depends on other fertility factors, such as the woman's
age. You must feel comfortable that the risks of surgery are worth the
likelihood of becoming pregnant.
