Gynecologists use laparoscopy to examine your pelvis. This procedure involves making a small cut in your abdomen and inserting a thin, illuminated tube known as a laparoscope into it.
This minimally-invasive procedure offers significant pain reduction and recovery time savings, helping doctors diagnose conditions like endometriosis and uterine fibroids more accurately.

Endometriosis is a condition in which tissue that normally lines the uterus (womb) grows outside its boundaries, often on other organs such as ovaries, bladder or bowel. The disease causes pelvic pain, bloating and fertility issues for women who experience it and scarring and adhesions for some. Unfortunately in many countries the general public and healthcare providers may be unaware that symptoms of endometriosis are abnormal and thus diagnostic delays and inadequate care for patients occur as a result of delays being unaware.
If you think you might have endometriosis, your doctor will want to take an endometrial biopsy (inject a sample into your pelvic lining). This can be accomplished either through laparoscopy or other imaging tests; ultrasound and computed tomography scans may also provide accurate diagnoses; additionally MRI may help your surgeon select an ideal surgical strategy.
Endometriosis depends on the size, number, and depth of its implants; mild endometriosis might include mild lesions with shallow implants on your ovaries or pelvic cavity lining, while moderate endometriosis has deeper implants and multiple lesions on these areas; severe cases have extensive lesions across organs.

Cysts or Tumors in the Ovary
Functional cysts of the ovary are temporary variations on normal physiological processes and should not be considered malignant; such cysts include follicular cysts that result from the failure of an individual mature follicle to rupture and ovulate and corpus luteum (CL) cysts that result from its involute process not taking place as expected. All functional cysts have no malign potential and will resolve on their own without treatment.
Other ovarian cysts may require medical intervention for treatment to be effective. Examples include:
Teratomas are one of the most prevalent germ cell tumors of the ovary, especially among women between their teens and forties. These cysts usually feature thick rubbery lining made up of skin-like tissue; they may also contain nerves and glands.
Fibromas are solid masses composed of connective tissue that usually feature a fluid-filled center. Fibromas typically form slowly on only one side.
If the ovarian growth does not represent cancer, physicians can usually monitor it using pelvic ultrasound or blood testing for estrogen and progesterone hormone levels. If they suspect cancerous behavior from the mass or tumor they may order additional imaging tests including chest CT scan, abdominal X-ray or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Doctors usually recommend waiting and monitoring ovarian cysts with ultrasounds and blood tests until they subside on their own. If this does not happen, birth control pills might help stop ovulation and further cysts forming; otherwise they might recommend surgical removal of an ovary to remove all or some cysts.
Ectopic pregnancy occurs when fertilized eggs form outside your womb in an abnormal location and start growing outside the uterine cavity, potentially leading to dangerous internal bleeding that if untreated quickly can damage fallopian tubes, organs, and even kill you. Your healthcare provider will check for an ectopic pregnancy through blood tests and pelvic ultrasound; symptoms that indicate one are abdominal or pelvic pain which usually starts off mild but gradually worsens, or vaginal bleeding – symptoms your healthcare provider should recognize as potential signs.
Ovulation involves the release of an egg from your ovary into your fallopian tube, where it meets sperm and implants into the uterine (womb) lining. An ectopic pregnancy occurs when an egg lodges inside any structure along its journey – such as your fallopian tube or endometrium tissue on your abdomen’s wall – instead of implanting into its intended location in your womb lining.
Gynecologists can generally tell if you have an ectopic pregnancy by measuring how fast the levels of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) rise; however, to confirm it they require additional tests such as placing a special probe in your vagina to send soundwaves through, creating images of your uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes. An abdominal ultrasound may also be performed using the same technology.
Healthcare providers can treat an ectopic pregnancy using medication or surgery. Medication treats the pregnancy hormone to help your body release less hCG at once; for ruptured ectopic pregnancies, surgery using laparoscope through small cuts in your lower belly may be performed to address rupture.
Gynae laparoscopy in Noida is a minimally invasive diagnostic surgical procedure used to inspect the internal organs of the abdomen. Gynecologists can use laparoscopy to precisely identify conditions like endometriosis, cysts or tumours in the ovary, ectopic pregnancy, adhesions and urinary tract infections more accurately; and even treat infertility issues or treat uterine fibroids using this approach.

Urinary Tract Infections
The urinary tract is your body’s drainage system for excess wastes and water, composed of kidneys, bladder, ureters (tubes), and urethra (tubes). Most urinary tract infections (UTIs) are caused by bacteria; however viruses, fungi or parasites may also play a part. People of both genders can get them, but four times more women than men develop UTIs; they’re especially likely if you have diabetes, need a tube drain your bladder, or have sustained spinal cord injuries than men do.
UTIs can be uncomfortable, but they usually clear up with antibiotic treatment within several days. It is essential that all prescribed medication be taken, even if symptoms improve; otherwise, the infection could return and be more difficult to treat than ever.
Lower-tract UTIs typically present similar symptoms to upper-tract infections; however, upper-tract infections can become life-threatening if bacteria migrates from your infected kidney into your bloodstream, potentially leading to sepsis and necessitating hospitalization.
