Ovarian drilling

I have PCOS &  my fertility dr has suggested we do ovarian drilling before I take the injectable hormone therapy. I''d like a second opinion, what are the pro''s and con''s of ovarian drilling?

Thanks

Dear Shanaaz

This entirely depends on whether the fertility specialist intends to do follicle retrieval/egg retrieval through transvaginal aspiration or whether he intends simply doing injectable ovulation induction and insemination or natural intercourse. Should follicle aspiration/ egg retrieval be considered then ovarian drilling has no benefits as this will have the same effect. Furthermore the benefits of drilling is only short term and if no pregnancy occurs within the first 6-9 months then the benefits of drilling are negated.
