Hi, I had ovarian drilling in May, I got my bfp today after taking 150mg of clomid, I'm also on the larger side so don't be put off if you're a larger lady, it can still work!


Sending lots of baby dust

Hello all!
New to this forum but have been browsing through an abundant of threads for hope! Brief run down.
Been ttc for 1 year. Always had irregular periods and by irregular, I mean almost absent since day one. Had a lap with dye + ovarian drilling + d&c on 17th December 2015. Did not bleed AT ALL post op. Af arrived 29th Jan 2016. I began light spotting couple days after presumed ovulation on 15th Feb to 17th.
Was meant to start Clomid on 27th Feb (2nd day of period) but unfortunately or "fortunately", af never came.
For the past week I have had period like cramps along with sharp pains and now 5 days later, no af and still with cramps/pains. Did 5 hpt all bfn 😔
Would love to know if anyone has gone through the same!

Hi ladies! I see this thread has been dormant for awhile. I'm not sure if there are any ladies out there still waiting for their BFP after OD, but I'm 3 days post op. I'm optimistic and would love to go through this with some of you.

Hi everyone,
Despite knowing this thread has gone dormant I wanted to post as I've just finished reading all 617 pages and I have to thank every poster for sharing their stories, wisdom, support and giving the rest of us hope! Congratulations to everyone for being brave enough to have this surgery and especially to those who have gone on to have their babies! I was so overjoyed reading all your BFP announcements!!!
I am 35, no children, BMI of 24.6 and recently diagnosed with PCOS. I had OD on 15 September, still waiting for AF and no signs of ovulation. I am also having increased hair growth, acne and weight gain. I have my specialist check up on Wednesday and I believe I'm being prescribed Clomid. I am trying to take everyone's advice here and just be patient with my body, as this thread has taught me everyone adjusts to the surgery differently!
Best of luck to everyone having OD in the future and fx for those BFPS!!!
Thanks again ladies, you have no idea how much comfort you brought me these last few weeks xxx

Wow i know this is an old post but i have had a little catch up.

Here's a little bit about me...

I have PCOS and had 5 (was meant to be 6 cycles of Clomid but the side effects were horrendous so i stopped) and i didn't respond well so then went onto IVF.
I had my first cycle of IVF in July but was at hight risk of OHSS so they decided to let me have a break after EC and do a freeze all, which i was fine with.
I had lots and lots of follies but only got 5 eggs, of which 4 fertilised and now my little frosties.

I then had the call from our specialist who said he thinks I'd be a good candidate for Ovarian Drilling

On Friday (20/10) I had laparoscopic surgery to drill my ovaries, the surgeon found some endometriosis which he removed, he said it was only minor, also checked my tubes and eveything was fine.
I feel i've recovered very well so far, even managed to :bd: last night, was very careful and wasn't great as I was worrying the whole time.

Does anyone know when should I expect my period?

I am on CD15 today but not sure if that gets reset after the drilling?

Hi babydust! Let's see if we can revive this thread

Some ladies have suggested that you count your day of surgery as CD1. If this is the case I am CD42 with no signs of AF coming anytime soon.

I had my post surgery check up yesterday. Unfortunately I have a lot of adhesions and was told Clomid would not work. I've been referred to a FS for IVF but don't know how I feel about this option. So that's where I'm at!

Babydust to you babydust! Fingers crossed AF shows up for you soon!

I was told to count the first day of any period after it as cd1, my doctor said that the good news is that if the OD doesn't get you ovulating it makes you much more sensitive to clomid so more likely to work, I still had to go up to 150mg of clomid but it did the trick.

When you get your period will depend on how your body has responded to the surgery, if you've not had anything in two weeks or so talk to your doctor and they may prescribe provera to start your period.

Yes that would be good as it's a huge and helpful thread

I've read that too regarding cd1 once bleeding from surgery. It stopped after 3 days and was only really light. Am DTD every other day anyway. I have some cheapy OPKs on the way.
When I have a full on AF I have to call the hospital for a scan to check if the op was successful.

So sorry to hear that I've had 1 round of IVF and honestly it wasn't what I thought. I totally was dreading it but I was positive the whole way through and found my hormones weren't sending me crazy. What is it you're unsure of hun?

Heyy

Yes I've read the same about cd1 will bd every other day to be safe.

I don't think I'd be put on clomid again as they tried me on that this time last year and I had real bad dizzy spells, I struggled to walk it was knocking me about for a good 10days

I haven't heard many ladies have OD so it's all a bit of a grey area to me.
Keeping a close eye on my body, looking forward to a proper AF so I can book my scan to see if the op was successful
