A diagnostic laparoscopy is an operation using keyhole surgery to look at your abdominal and pelvic organs. For some women minor treatments can be performed at the same time. A diagnostic laparoscopy is good for finding out the cause of lower abdominal and pelvic pain, certain period problems and infertility. The operation will help to find out if you have endometriosis, pelvic infection, adhesions, damaged fallopian tubes, an ectopic pregnancy, ovarian cysts or fibroids.
