Many women have retroverted uteruses and it is not usually necessary to correct them. If you have PCOS and are not ovulating, it seems like the first step would be medication to stimulate ovualtion. It may be that the doctor suspects another problem, such as endometriosis and is therefore doing the laparoscopy.
