Done during laparoscopy, is a procedure in which a laser fibre or electrosurgical needle punctures the ovary 4 to 10 times
This treatment results in a dramatic lowering of male hormones within days and is often performed in women who have polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Studies have shown that up to 80 percent of patients will benefit from such treatment. Many women who fail to ovulate with clomiphene or Metformin therapy will respond when these medications are reintroduced to the system after ovarian drilling. Side effects are rare, but may result in adhesion formation or ovarian failure if there are complications during the procedure.
What is Ovarian Drilling?
Ovarian drilling is a surgical technique dedicated to the treatment of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. It consists of performing micro-perforations in ovaries in order to induce ovulation. Polycyctic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is characterized by ovulation disorders and represents the most common cause of infertility in women of reproductive age.
Ovarian drilling, which was commonly performed by laparoscopy, is now currently performed by fertiloscopy, benefiting in turn from its mini-invasiveness and physiological approach.
What To Expect After Surgery
If you have a laparoscopy procedure, you can usually go home the same day and resume normal activities within 24 hours.
Your return to normal activities will also depend on how quickly you recover from surgery, which may take a few days or as long as 2 to 4 weeks.
Why It Is Done ?
Ovarian drilling is done for women with PCOS who have not responded to weight loss and fertility medication. Partial ovarian destruction has been reported to restore regular ovulation cycles.
