When to undergo laparoscopic myomectomy?
If you have symptoms of fibroid like heavy, prolonged bleeding, painful periods, big bulge on the abdomen, pressure symptoms like frequency of urination and constipation are the indications of surgery. In young patients who has not completed the family we recommend myomectomy (Removal pf fibroid). In those who has completed the family and aged we give option to do hysterectomy (uterus removal), final option always is for the patients.
When can I conceive after myomectomy and does myomectomy surgery leads to Infertility?
Pregnancy can be planned after 4-6 months, depending on the size and location of fibroid. Fibroid removal surgery does not cause infertility, if any fibroids causing infertility, such as submucosal fibroids can be cured after fibroid removal.
I have huge and multiple fibroid can it be removed laparoscopically?
Yes, huge and multiple fibroids can be removed through laparoscopically. Until we have space to put laparoscopy instruments inside the abdomen, we can remove fibroids. we are routinely removing fibroids weighing more than 1000gms laparoscopically and we are using morcellation bag for extraction of fibroids.
I have multiple previous surgeries can we go for laparoscopic fibroid removal/Uterus removal or open surgery?
Of course, we can do laparoscopy in previous surgeries. Once we insert camera into the abdomen, we look for the adhesions, in case of severe adhesions which carries the risk of injury to the important organs, and no space to remove adhesions, we may decide to go for open surgery at the same sitting. We rarely come across such situation , we do routine pre-operative counselling in very high-risk patients about rare possibility of conversion to open surgery.

why laparoscopy in infertility is required?
We call as Infertility if the women not able to conceive in spite of having frequent, unprotected sex for at least a year. Infertility can be from both partners and unexplained. Laparoscopy in infertility id done to check your fallopian tubes, ovaries and uterus, it can identify endometriosis, scarring, blockages the fallopian tubes, or any problems with the ovaries some of these things which are not picked with ultrasonography. If any problems are found then they can sometimes be corrected with operative laparoscopy.
