    Re: Is drilling for PCOS is necessary in order to get pregnant?

    Hi all,
    Tks for all your replies, really appreciate all your thoughts & advice.
    I was really in deep thought & lil stressed out thinking abt what I shall do. Your replies have indeed made me sit down & focus in one thing at a time.
    Am now currenty focusing & working on to loose weight & to be healthy. I managed to loose 2KGs in 1 month. Therefore, am more excited & encouraged to continue. I hope to loose ard 15 KGs in half a year. I hope I will stay focused & discipline till I reach the goal. Thanks lot for all your supports & encouragements.

    Hi,

    Though it was posted a while back, I thought of informing you it is better to check with a gyno if you have PCOS. Many PCOS women have Insulin Resistance which increases the risk for Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease.

    Yes, PCOS women can conceive but sometimes need medical assisstance.

    Ovarian drilling....

    Hi all,

    I am undergoing ovarian drilling tomorrow. I have read its pros and cons and the pros seem to outweigh the cons. Also, my gynec says it will help me a lot as a lot of my other health factors are supportive to this method of treating PCOS. So am going for it. If anybody else has undergone this procedure, do let me know if you have had success by this method. I hope I will get better with this and conceive in spite of my PCOS. Will let you all know what happens. Well, some of you might wonder why I'm posting this.........its just that I am nervous and I hope I will not be one of those rare cases where things go wrong. I am trying to gather my hopes around me and I just felt you folks at IL will understand. :) Will keep you all posted.

    Regards,
    (a very nervous) Anitha

    Dear Devika,

    Thanks a lot for your encouraging words! My spirits do soar on reading them. :) I am sincerely hoping I have happy news soon. By the way, in the drilling process, they rupture the cysts in the ovaries through a laparoscopic procedure. This seems to work for a lot of women with PCOS who are not too overweight and are young. Nobody knows why exactly ovarian drilling works, but it does! So I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Thanks again for your encouraging words.

    Regards,
    Anitha

    Hi AnithA,

    Don't worry. Thing will definitely work for you. some times, cysts are to be drilled to be drilled and removed to enable better prospects for pregnancy.

    I did not have any drilling..only removal of cyst and laproscopic is more easier, you will be home and normal within days.

    All the best..will pray for your speedy recovery.

    Re: Ovarian drilling....

    Hi Anitha,

    That's a good Idea. I've been through this process and you know what, I got conceived as well. It's a god's gift. I think Iam the person you are looking for. I went through this process on 2002 and got pregenant on the same month it self. As shanvy mentioned, it's a very simple process and you can be at home on the same day. You would not feel anything...... no pain at all except the tiny holes stiches, which would disappear within few days. But I know, what you must be going through. Mine was even worser, I didn't had a clue what I was going through and was not at all expecting success. My gynac told me, we will just try this process and see. But god answered our prayers and it worked. It was totally unexpected.

    After this, I didn't even had any medication and I conceived normally. One thing I would suggest is, please please try not to think about the results now. I know it's very hard, but don't expect. Just say to god, I am undergoing this process as per your plan and the rest is in your hand.
    As far as the procedure is concern, don't worry. It is very simple.

    ALL THE BEST DEAR. :kiss
