Diagnostic Laparoscopy & Dye Test
A diagnostic laparoscopy and dye test is an operation to help find out why you are having difficulty becoming pregnant. During the procedure the dye test will show if your fallopian tubes are blocked while the laparoscopy will help find out if you have endometriosis, pelvic infection, adhesions, ovarian cysts or fibroids.
During the procedure your gynaecologist will make several small incisions on your abdomen, through which they will place surgical instruments, along with a scope in order to observe the lining of the uterus. Your gynaecologist will look for evidence of endometriosis, a pelvic infection, adhesions, ovarian cysts or fibroids which may be causing issues. A dye is also injected which passes through the cervix, uterine cavity and down the fallopian tubes, highlighting any blockages.
