Thanks for posting your query.
You have been advised to have laproscopy to find out tha patency of the fallopian tubes. This is a diagnostic test and the treating doctors are trying to find out the cause of your delay in conception. In case the tubes were found normal after laproscopy then ovulation induction therapy and other assisted reproductive techniques will be administered to help you concieve.
Laproscopy is done undr general anaesthesia and you will be discharged after one day. Surgery is done only if the tubes are found to be blocked.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
