Laparoscopic ovarian diathermy or ovarian drilling method is used whence the female partner is irregular in releasing eggs. This leads to irregular periods with long interval.
The procedure requires :
- General Anesthesia .
- Overnight Fasting.
- 2 or 3 holes to be made in abdominal wall of 1-2 cm lenght to pass laparoscope and operating instruments .
- May require Overnight Hospital stay.
During ovarian drilling the ovaries are punctured/burned by brief electric sparks at 4 to 5 spots. Drilling in PCOS leads to ovulation in 60 - 70 % cases and 60 % spontaneous pregnancies in a period of 6 months to a year. A successful treatment induces ovulation and rectifies hormonal imbalance.
The treatment for PCOS is specialized and may depend upon person to person. The cause of development of PCOS in females is not specifically known. However the immediate cause is hormonal.
