Ovarian Drilling Pcos
Considering ovarian drilling for PCOS high LH:FSH ratio, irreg cycles, cystic acne, insomnia, feels miserable. Does it really DESTROY part of ovary?
Yes, but wait...: technically, it HAS to, right? The word, itself "drilling" means making a hole. To make a hole you have to take SOME stuff out, right? But that doesn't mean you won't have enough left over to still do what you need them to do. Ovaries have thousands and thousands of eggs, and women only use a few hundred in a lifetime. That said, I am NOT endorsing any specific procedure for you, as I HAVENT SEENU ...Read more
Pcos is a metabolic disorder affecting 8-10% of women that may cause irregular periods, acne or increased hair growth, infertility or subfertility, and increases the risk of diabetes.

Ultrasound showing large ovaries ...Read more
Is it normal to get cramps before ovulation.?I have pcos, had ovarian drilling done 2m ago and now tracking if I am ovulating regularly!
Yes: Some but not all women have discomfort which could be described as cramping at the time of ovulation it is called mittelsmirtz (german for middle pain).

Im 1.65m and 60 kilos. Age 25 been ttc for 2 years. Have pcos. Clomid 100mg helped growing an egg of 16mm. Is ovarian drilling a good option for me?
Drilling: Going to Clomid 150mg would be a mistake. Therefore you are looking at gonadotropin meds vs. ovarian drilling. Both of these are good options if you have a competent infertility team/consultant. Statistically, these are equal in efficacy. if you are high risk surgically, gonadotropin rx is better. Otherwise, I would say these options are pretty equal. ...Read more
I have pcos and i will be going for ovarian drilling soon after five cycles of clomid. What is the success rate for pregnancy with this procedure?
Drilling: In your situation, your two options are ovarian drilling or gonadotropin therapy (somewhat similar to ivf therapies). These two have similar pregnancy rates - about 55% success over 6 months, although some studies show success rates as low as 20%. Gonadotropin therapy is more time intensive and more expensive, but does not require surgery. Drilling might hasten menopause- but not definitely proven. ...Read more
I have PCOS and a period 35 - 50 days. Some women don't have this privilege. My LH,FSH ratio is 3:1. I want ovarian drilling. Dysmenorrhea. Should I?
No: Ovarian drilling is very rare now. First it kills lots of your eggs so you may have infertility from it and may have an earlier menopause. Also it can cause scar tissue in your belly which can cause more pain symptoms. PCOS should not cause painful periods unless they are very heavy and irregular. Likely you would benefit from seeing a specialist ...Read more
I had an operative laparoscopy and ovarian cyst drilling in april. Fertility was a problem (pcos) how long it takes to get pregnant?
Depends: Drilling is rarely done anymore. It is no more effective than ovulation medicines. If you periods are now very regular after the surgery, then hopefully you have a chance to become pregnant. If your periods are still irregular now, then the surgery will not provide benefit so fertility treatment would be in order. Drilling can cause significant scarring so a xray of the tubes would be helpful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

After laproscopic: Ovarian drilling, don't start a diet immediately after surgery - as you want to give your body a little time to mend.

After having ovarian drilling can you body start functioning correctly like it should and start ovulating regularly?
PCOS: It *may*. There are many causes for anovulatory or oligoovulatory scenarios, as well as treatments for them. Ovarian drilling is a rarer treatment that fewer and fewer physicians are using today. ...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?
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
