The reproductive surgery is a procedure to observe uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes, in order to detect a problem that is causing infertility and should always be considered when the patient has a history of surgeries such as appendectomy, intestinal surgeries, ovarian surgery, or in fallopian tubes.

In general there are two types of reproductive surgery: Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy (Surgery by laparotomy is practically no longer performed). In this space, I would like to focus on the type of reproductive surgery called Hysteroscopy.

This surgery is indicated  when there is a blockage in the fallopian tubes near the uterus. This surgery is performed with an optical instrument called a hysteroscope, a camera is then placed in this instrument to observe the images on a screen. The hysteroscope optical device is introduced through the cervix to remove anything that is blocking the fallopian tubes, in this case anesthesia can be general or epidural. Hysteroscopy is a short-stay surgery and ideally it should be performed in the first days after the end of menstrual bleeding.
