Best avoided

Detailed Answer:
Hello mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
Laser is best avoided by ladies desirous of fertility as it can cause problems with conception by causes DNA damage to the growing egg and if at all already pregnant but not yet recognized then severe damage to the baby.
So current recommendations are totally against laser while trying to conceive.
