Certain patients with fertility problems may benefit from a diagnostic and/or operative laparoscopy. … In addition, laparoscopy will evaluate the relationship between your ovaries and fallopian tubes. Any adhesions or endometriosis will be removed at the time of surgery.

 

 

If one or both fallopian tubes are blocked, the egg cannot reach the uterus, andthe sperm cannot reach the egg, preventing fertilization and pregnancy. It’s also possible for the tube not to be blocked totally, but only partially. This can increase the risk of a tubal pregnancy, or ectopic pregnancy.
