Abstract

This chapter focuses on hysteroscopic evaluation of infertile couple. Infertility is a life crisis. The number of couples seeking medical help for infertility is increasing dramatically. The incidence of infertility in any community varies between 5% and 15%. One of the basic steps of an infertility workup is to evaluate the shape and regularity of the uterine cavity. Acquired uterine lesions, such as uterine fibroids, endometrial polyps, intrauterine adhesions, or all of these, may cause infertility by interfering with proper embryo implantation and growth. Scope of the hysteroscopy, indications of hysteroscopy in infertility management, abnormalities of the uterine cavity, and hysteroscopy in artificial reproductive technique are covered in this chapter.
