=12pxHi Dr. Braverman,We are considering immune testing with you but first will be getting a laparoscopy for suspected endometriosis, suspected chronic pelvic inflammatory disease, and recently discovered hydrosalpinx so tube(s) will be removed. Also will likely do hysteroscopy at same time.I also plan to get endometrial biopsy after that along with possibly E-tegrity test http://www.etegritytest.com/ and/or Yale Endometrial Function Test http://medicine.yale.edu/obgyn/kliman/infertility/eft/index.aspxYou had advised that the Lap be done prior to immune tests, see:http://www.preventmiscarriage.com/Discussion-Forum/Questions-for-Dr-Braverman/Endometriosis-Immune-Testing.aspxQuestion: =12pxShould immune testing be done before or after the biopsy?Thanks so much.

Be sure if there is hydrosalpinx that the tubes are removed or at least clipped. You can do the immune testing either prior to the surgery or at least one month after the surgery. It can be done at any time in relaiton to an endometrial biopsy.
