Our expert says:
The outcome of the operation for Polycystic Ovarian syndrome is unpredictable and does not always lead to regular menstrual cycles or pregnancy. Also there are different types of operations and you need to clarify with your gynaecologist what he intends to do. Ovarian wedge resection is no longer the primary operation of choice as it has been substituted by other procedures such as ovarian drilling. The ovarian drilling if not done carefully may result in thermal damage to healthy eggs and may in some cases cause more harm than good and therefore you should first of all investigate your options more thoroughly and discuss it with your gynaecologist in great detail.
