Movie: Laparoscopic ovarian drilling

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition, and a frequent cause of subfertility. PCOS is characterised by hormonal dysfunction, and relevant to subfertility, it can be associated with ovulatory problems. Drugs such as clomiphene and metformin are used to induce ovulation in such cases, but if this proves unsuccessful, ovarian drilling can be effective. Ovarian drilling is most conveniently done laparoscopically.
