What is the role of hysteroscopy in infertility?

In this video, Dr. Kaberi Banerjee, Medical Director, Advanced Fertility & Gynecology Center, New Delhi, will discuss the role of hysteroscopy in infertility. Hysteroscopy is a procedure in which the inner walls of the uterus are seen with the help of a telescope. This is done to see if there are any missed issues such as polyps and small fibroids. It is also done to give a good wash to the uterine lining for IVF treatment. Endometrial scratching is done at the same time to improve implantation rate and provide endometrial tissue for tubercular testing which is a key factor in infertility.
