How safe is ovarian drilling after 2 rounds of Clomid (clomiphene) and what is next if od is not successful?

How safe is ovarian drilling after 2 rounds of Clomid (clomiphene) and what is next if od is not successful?

Ovarian drilling: Studies show laparoscopic ovarian drilling to be safe, cost effective treatment in patients in with polycystic ovarian syndrome. It is a minimally invasive, safe procedure that usually results in conception in 2 or 3 months post procedure and instead of a litter, you would have one child to carry. If it doesn't work don't dispair, invitro, adoption and other options still exist. ...Read more

Clomid (clomiphene) challenge I have recently been diagnosed with dimished ovarian reserve, my FSH levels are around 15. Since we already know about my ovarian reserve, what benefit if any, is a Clomid (clomiphene) challenge?

The : The Clomid (clomiphene) challenge test is one way to test ovarian reserve (egg supply, fertility potential). It is best used in patients that have had normal ovarian reserve testing to date and are planning future fertility treatment. An abnormal Clomid (clomiphene) challenge test result can predict poor response to fertility treatment. In your particular case, with a high fsh you may already be showing signs of diminished ovarian reserve, so I do not think it will give you further information. Certainly - I do not have all of the information in your case and i recommend reviewing with a reproductive endocrinolist that can review your entire case. I hope this helps! ...Read more

Diminished ovarian reserve with low egg supply. Would u rec Clomid (clomiphene) with IUI or injectable with iui. I am 35 years old?

Yes, IVF is better: At age 39 with DOR, you may try few cycles Clomid (clomiphene) IUI, but IVF is a better option. The reason is with DOR, you don't have many embryos to work with. On the other hand, if you do IVF, you may bank embryos and do FET later. At age 39, I strongly recommend to do Pre-implantation genetic screening (PGS) of your embryos prior to transfer. It will increase your change of pregnancy and reduce miscarriage ...Read more

Need More Info: Ovarian drilling is a procedure that has variable effectiveness. It also is dependent on how aggressive an ovarian drilling was performed. Also, Clomid (clomiphene) may take upto 4 cycles to work. It may be best to see if you ovulate on your own after the drilling. There are other drugs and hormones that can help you if Clomid (clomiphene) does not work. Good luck1 ...Read more

Right ovarian pain after tking Clomid (clomiphene) the doctor said everything looked fine  saw 10 follicles why did I have pain if they were small in size?

Ovulation Pain: Ovulation can sometimes cause pain and induced ovulation (clomid (clomiphene) use) can cause increased pain from more follicular developement than usual. If your ultrasound was negative for hyperstimulation (or very large cysts) you should not have a torsed or twisted ovary. If your pain is severe or increasing, go back to your doc & have them repeat the ultrasound. Take care. ...Read more

Doctor preferred for ovarian drilling after 2 rounds of clomid (clomiphene).Ovulated in 1st cycle but not in 2nd.What is the success rate in ovarian drilling?

Not recommended : Ovarian drilling is an old school way of trying to get women to ovulate with pcos. I would never recommend that over clomid (clomiphene). You need at least 6 cycles of Clomid (clomiphene) before i would move on to something else. ...Read more
