how is it done? does it take a while to recover?

It is done through a small incision called laparoscopy with general anesthesia to destroy some parts of the ovary in order to make it ovulate again. Full recovery after the procedure may take a week or two.

I think this ovarian drilling is a kind of surgery that is not commonly used. But it can be an option to women who are still not ovulating after trying fertility medicines.

urgh...ovarian drilling sounds painful. Im guessing the procedure isnt a walk in the park either.... :(

Yes, in this case I can not imagine how it works but I agree it really sounds painful.It is not common to my ears, but still I'm hoping for those who submit themselves of this medication that they can achieve good results.
