Hello Dr. Braverman,

I've had 2 failed IVFs and have suspected endometriosis (due to ovarian cysts being seen on ultrasound & cramps/sickness during periods).

I haven't yet had a laparoscopy but am planning to, in order to make sure everything looks ok in there. If I can get my appt. timing to work out, I'm hoping to have these all done in the same procedure:
1. laparoscopy
2. hysteroscopy
3. endometrial biopsy

I've never had immune testing yet but plan to.

My question is about what to do first:
Do you advise having a laparoscopy before having immune testing done?

Thanks so much.

Dr. Braverman

If you are already planning on gettin the laparoscopy then I would wait on the immune testing for at least one month after the laparoscopy .
