Colpotomy is also known as vaginotomy. It is a procedure performed to either visualize pelvic structures or to perform surgery on the fallopian tubes or ovaries. It is performed by making an incision in the vagina whenever the surgeon needs to access the vagina. It is performed usually in cases of tubal sterilization, removal of myomas, removal of pelvic cysts and masses, hysterectomy, dysmenorrhea, or complications in pregnancy and childbirth
