Hi everyone ,
Just wondering if anyone in here has had ovarian drilling done during a laparoscopy? I am booked in for one on July 16 to hopefully find and get rid of some endometriosis, remove the multiple cysts on my ovaries and the specialist said that since he is going to be 'in there' anyway, ovarian drilling would be a good idea as well (since we are TTC).
Has anyone had any luck with getting pregnant soon after a laproscopy, or having ovarian drilling done?
Any info would be terrific

Hay how are you ? Well here is my little story Hay, I'm kinda new to this forum thing, I have been endlessly reading them for the last 2 years while TTC #1 and thought I would join in, hope that's ok. I'm 32 my hubby is 27 ;-). We have been trying for baby #1 for 2 years now. I got diagnosed with PCOS 18 months ago after coming off the pill and not having AF. I have around 50 cysts on each ovary. Started on Metformin a year ago which did nothing for me apart from make me vomit, we wanted to try and go the naturalist way possible as only in our first year trying. I had first round of Clomid last month which did make me ovulate (6eggs !!!!!!!!) however none fertilised :-(. 7 days ago I had laparoscopy, ovarian drilling, D/C HSG (they thought my tubes where both blocked but the dye studies shows they are both clear.) and to restart Clomid again. I always new in the back of my mind I would have problems TTC but never thought I would have to go through this emotional roller coaster journey to concieve a little angel. Has anybody had ovarian drilling that has worked ? I'm hoping for a miracle as much as we all are. I'm only 7 days post op so hopefully thinga will get working soon if it does at all I will keep you posted. I have read some really promising success stories though. Sara

I just wanted to wish you both luck, ladies!
I'm not sure what ovarian drilling is but I had my appendix out while I was in Kuala Lumpur in May and the doctor got a gynecologist in while I was under to clear up some endometriosis they found in there. They removed two cysts (I asked to see them and my appendix, SO gross!) and I'm hoping it'll increase my fertility too!

Thanks Goblin Queen, sounds like you had a rough time? Where you on holiday when you had to have your appendix out ? Most definitely hope removing that endo gives you more chance of being fertile :-)

That's amazing news !!!!! Obviously there was a reason why you had appendicitis !!!!! Is this your first BFP ?xx

I had a miscarriage at 9.5 weeks in March 2012. So my second pregnancy but it'll be my first baby.

I've got my lap on 16 July - they are going to take off the cysts, give me a d&c, remove the endo and do the drilling... This is my second lap (last one in 2009) and I hope recovery this time around is a little easier

I haven't had either but I do have pcos and like to read up on all that stuff. I spoke to a gyno about ovary drilling once and he told me that he prefers to use other methods first because even though it clears up your ovaries, they can come back in a few months and it can also cause scar tissue, which might also stop you from ovulating.
I'm sure there are heaps of success stories out there, just make sure you do your research and that you make a decision that is right for you. Good luck x

Goblin Queen, so sorry for your loss but this is your little miracle :-) enjoy every minute of it :-).Becca, I was really worried about the scaring when my specialist told me what the risks are but to be honest we were at that level to take the next step after 2 years I kinda thought I had nothing to loose. I just hope no damage was done to my ovaries fingers crossed. I'm amazed at how common PCOS is ! I really didn't think it would take me this long to concieve but I'm trying to stay positive but stay level headed. I finished my last clomid tablet today so we shall see if I ovulate next week.
