Is letrozole more effective than ovarian drilling by minilaparotomy?

Is letrozole more effective than ovarian drilling by minilaparotomy?

Unclear but: While ovarian drilling may be effective in causing ovulation and achieving pregnancy, it is surgery (which entails a number of risks) and may cause scar tissue on the ovaries and deplete the supply of eggs. It is also rather unusual to have a laparotomy since this is almost always done by laparoscopy. Meds such as letrazole are safer. Drilling is usually a last resort. ...Read more

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?

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 more

Ovarian drilling done on jun 21(CD6).Today is CD10.Follicle size ranges between 6 to 7mm. Is it possible to conceive in this cycle?

Not likely: The follicles are too small, but more important, you just had the surgery where your ovaries were traumatized by the drilling. You need to let them heal for a few weeks before you worry about ovulation and conception. Give it a month, then see if you are ovulating the next cycle. ...Read more

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?

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
