Ovarian Drilling

Postby momto3boys » Sat Apr 27, 2013 5:12 pm

I just had a laparoscopy performed this past Tuesday for a large ovarian cyst and my GYN asked if she could do ovarian drilling, I said yes. I had never really heard much about it and still not sure about what all was done but I trust my dr. I had been 70 plus days with no cycle and she said it would regulate my periods.
Anyone else have ovarian drilling? What was your experience? Did it regulate your cycles? Were you able to conceive after? If so, how long did it take?

I stopped charting after my cycles started getting longer and longer, really hoping this surgery was some how my magic fix! :roll:

Hi I had ovarian drilling on 10th sept 2013. As i did not have any ovulation for a year and had PCOS a really quick operation they drilled 6 holes in each ovary. Was a little sore after the op but was walking around and back to normal 4 days after the op. I had a very heavy bleed 7 days after the op but it meant I ovulated!!!! I took a pregnancy test on 18/10/13 and it came back positive! !!!
I would definitely have the op again if I needed it.
Lots of baby dust to you x
