Female Infertility and its cause
Female infertility refers to the inability of a woman to conceive or carry a pregnancy to term despite regular and unprotected sexual intercourse for a considerable period. It is a complex and emotionally challenging condition that affects a significant number of women worldwide. Various factors can contribute to female infertility, including hormonal imbalances, ovulatory disorders, structural abnormalities in the reproductive organs, and age-related decline in ovarian function. Other potential causes may include polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), uterine fibroids, and previous pelvic surgeries. Lifestyle factors such as excessive stress, obesity, smoking, and excessive alcohol consumption can also impact fertility

Basics of endoscopy for Gynecology Treatment
Endoscopy is a minimally invasive medical procedure used in gynecology for diagnostic and treatment purposes. It involves the insertion of a thin, flexible tube with a camera (hysteroscope or laparoscope) into the vaginal or abdominal cavity to visualize and examine the reproductive organs, such as the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. Gynecological endoscopy allows for the diagnosis of conditions like fibroids, polyps, and endometriosis, as well as the performance of surgical procedures like hysterectomy, myomectomy, and tubal ligation with smaller incisions and quicker recovery times compared to traditional open surgery, making it a valuable tool in women's healthcare.
