Success rate for Laparoscopy, ovarian drilling? How much better are my chances?
Yes, it is me again. I have done my year on clomid, including my 6 months on Glucopage and I have had a laparoscopy done about 3 weeks ago which included ovarian drilling, getting rid of most of the tiny little cysts that I had on my ovaries. The doctor said that he couldn't get rid of all the cysts without damaging my ovaries. My tubes are clear and my womb is normal. He found some endo but left it there because he said it is not causing any problems. Are my chances of falling pregnant any better after this procedure? So far, I am on day 35 of my cycle and my breasts are very painful - my cycle was always 45 days without any drugs.... but my breasts have never been this sore. I did a preg test on day 31 but it was negative... why would this be happening then?
Thank you

Your chances of preganncy are certainly better, but it would be a good idea to check whether or not you are ovulating now. Chance is a statistic. You want to know your individual situation.
