Laproscopic surgery - Ovarian Drilling

Hi Susan,

In continuation with our earlier discussion on 'Laproscopic surgery - Ovarian Drilling'. I am herewith furnishing the details of the discussion I had with the Gyn.

My Gyn provided the below reason for trying Laproscopic - ovarian drilling:
1) As we have been trying to overcome the 'PCOs' - liquid layer, via tablet for the past 1 and a half years.
2) Apart from the 'Liquid bubbles' in the Ovary, my wife haven't diagnoised with any other complications which are delaying her pregnancy.

3) The only other option the Gyn suggested, is that to follow another protocol of medicines for another 3-4 months.
4) And as per the Gyn, HSG and D&C is not required as there is no possible block.

Please provide your opinion on the above. Also, please clarify my below doubts:
1) Let me know, if the 'Cystic Ovary - Liquid Layer' will get cleared using tablets itself.. if so, on average how much months it would take.
2) And why you consider 'Laproscopic - Ovarian Drilling' to be a very uncommon method (As per my understanding of PCOs, the obstecle for getting pregnant are the
liquid layers... correct me if my understanding is wrong)
3) Have you got to know anyone who have tried 'Laproscopic - Ovarian Drilling' - If so, what was their chance of getting pregnant (can u pls specify in months)
4) Do you recommend any other options for us before going for 'Laproscopic - Ovarian Drilling'? If so, pls suggest.
