It is a simple procedure using a laparoscope, which is a minimally invasive procedure.

A colposcopy is a simple procedure used to look at the cervix, the lower part of the womb at the top of the vagina. It’s often done if cervical screening finds abnormal cells in your cervix.
Tubal pregnancy or pregnancy outside the uterus is known as ectopic pregnancy. This condition can put the life of a pregnant woman at risk.
Vaginismus or commonly known as painful intercourse, is a functional problem that requires treatment. If not treated it will interfere with your quality of life and your intimate relationship.
