Ovarian drilling done at day 4 of my cycle. I had a positive ovulation test on day 16. Is it possible despite positive test ovulation doesn't occur?
Ovulation: I assume that you were using a urine ovulation predictor kit. These kits detect the LH surge which occurs prior to ovulation and are good at doing that. There are some false positive tests. However, if you were testing on consecutive days and it went from negative on a couple days to positive then most likely it is a preovulatory surge of LH. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

After ovarian drilling dr advised ttc naturally for 3 months. Is it wise knowing that the dye only spilled on right tube but not my left?
Matter of style: Whether it is 'wise' or not is largely an opinion, or a strategy. TTC naturally for 3 months with a blocked tube is reasonable, it is also fairly conservative. Going directly to treatments is also completely reasonable, but more aggressive. If you are unhappy with your doctor's recs, talk with him about how you want to proceed. ...Read more
