I Am Getting An Ovarian Wedge Resection On Both Ovaries In A Few Days. Has Anyone Had Experience With This Surgery?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

My doctor recommend a laparoscopic ovarian wedge resection on both ovaries. As well as looking for and possibly excising endometriosis. I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2017 but have had symptoms since my first period at 10 years old. So, this has been a loooooooong journey for me. I am 26 now and finally feel like I am being listened to by my doctor about the pain, discomfort, and overall poor quality of life.

Has anyone had this procedure done? What should I expect? How was your experience? Any… read more

Does Anyone Else Feels Like Their Ovaries Hurt?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

I always get a sharp cramp in my right ovary when I ovulate that lasts at least two days. Sometimes though when I press down on my right abdomen I feel a sharp pang and I get similar pangs throughout the day even when I’m not ovulating. I was diagnosed with PCOS last year and told I have multiple cysts on my right ovary. Also I haven’t got my period this month but I feel like I felt the ovulation cramps and then two weeks later I had period like cramps but still no period? I’m super stressed out… read more

Has Anyone Had A Laporoscopy To Remove Some Of Fallopian Tube

Ovarian Drilling (Not For Infertility Reasons)
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

Hi, I just wondered if someone had their oavaries drilled to rid exccessive cysts.

1.) Do the cysts typically come back?

2.) Ovarian Drilling is listed as a one time treatment for fertility reasons.

3.) Is this supposed to be a permant treatment?

4.) Have found nothing for drilling related to treatment to manage cysts/pcos.
Only things available are for those looking to concieve.

A myPCOSteam Member

I went to the gynecologist on Friday. She said that getting the cysts removed wouldn't be very helpful. I thought removing them might make my hair grow back and my acne go away. I was very upset to… read more

LOD: The Ideal Solution?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

I was diagnosed with PCOS very recently and don't know much at all yet. From the info given to me by my gynea, Laparoscopic Ovarian Drilling seems like the ideal solution when trying to conceive (like I am). Please excuse my ignorance but I am wondering why all women struggling to conceive with PCOS don't just go this route? Why does it not work fore some? Please help out.
