 Laser application in the treatment of gynecological diseases and infertility



The laser is one of the modern energy sources that can be used to treat some diseases. The most important characteristics of laser power are directional accuracy and the ability to control current strength and thickness.

The most important areas of laser application in gynecology and infertility are laparoscopic surgery and in vitro fertilization (IVF) laboratories.

Laparoscopic surgery is one of the modern minimally invasive surgical methods, so the necessary operations can be performed without opening the layers of the abdomen. Laser energy is used to remove adhesions and treat endometriosis, two major causes of infertility. Endometriosis can cause severe pain in the lower abdomen and symptoms of late pregnancy. These symptoms can range from mild to severe, and surgical treatment can improve the chances of pregnancy, especially if the disease is mild and moderate. Care must be taken during these surgeries to preserve vital tissues such as the ducts, ovaries, and uterus. Therefore, the importance of the laser beam emerges due to the accuracy and safety of the treatment.

As for in vitro fertilization (IVF) laboratories, the so-called embryonic finishing can be performed on embryos using a laser beam to increase the chances of embryos adhering to the uterine wall, and thus increase the chances of pregnancy. 

During the first few days of life, the embryo is covered in a dry, eggshell-like substance, and for the embryo to adhere to the uterine wall, it needs to break down this shell and hatch from it. 

In some cases, the fetus may have difficulty completing the procedure because it is too thick or the fetus is weak, and this is where the benefit of using a laser beam to terminate or rupture this cortex in the laboratory. 

Computational scientific research to confirm the benefits of using this technique in increasing the chances of pregnancy, especially in women in women over 38, it is also used in cases of non-recurrent pregnancies during IVF procedures. 

These studies confirmed the safety of using the laser on the fetus, where the current is in contact with the fetus, and it only leads to the thinning of the outer wall without harming the cells of the fetus itself.
