Based on your past medical history, physical exam and current symptoms, your doctor believes that you may have an ectopic pregnancy. For this condition, your doctor is recommending a laparoscopy.
Laparoscopy can be used as a tool for diagnosing medical conditions, such as ectopic pregnancy, by actually looking inside your abdomen. This technique offers patients many advantages over traditional surgery. With laparoscopy, patients usually have shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery times because it is a simpler, less invasive procedure.
At this time, your doctor feels that a laparoscopy will help diagnose and treat your condition.
