Really need you help....
Dear dr,

I have been for a laparoscopy, hysteroscopy and ovarian drilling on the 20th of June. My period has not arrived ever since. I went to my gynae on Monday 30 July and he then prescribed Duphaston and Clomid. I am not pregnant but you can clearly see a thick endometrium lining on the sonar. Is this the correct way to go? Will my period ever return to normal? Am I not confusing my body more now when I use the Duphaston and Clomid again? Should I maybe leave everything to return to normal on its own?

Thank you so much!

Dear Natasha

It is quite often the case after an ovarian drilling procedure that the period will take some time to return. In some cases this may happen after 3 to 4 months. The approach taken by the gynaecologist is correct and may speed up the ovulatory and menstrual process.
