In brief: Diagnosis

Female pelvic pain is very complex .
A laparoscopic examination can help to evaluate and distinguish the gynecologic versus non gynecologic causes of pain. Endometriosis and adhesions can be treated on the spot.

In brief: Cut scars.

The laparoscope can be used to lyze or cut adhesions or scar tissue.
It can be used to excise or cauterize implants of endometriosis. Many fibroids can be removed with the laparoscope. Also, by identifying the cause of pain as either pelvic adhesions, endometriosis, fibroids, or adenomyosis, it gives information about what medicines may be useful in the future.
