no medication for ovulation given
Hi! I have PCOS and had a laparoscopy in May. I was ovulating at the time of the op. How ironic! Anyway, after the op I asked my gynae if I need to take something to help ovulation so I could fall pregnant soon and she said it wasn't necessary. It seems like I am the only one as everyone else is on Clomid or something similar. I am only taking glucophage. What are my chances of ovulating a month after the op and is there a way to check?

Not all women with PCOS do not ovulate. If you are ovulating, there is no need to take anything. A good sign of ovulation is the egg-white discharge. You could also use an ovulation detector kit.
