Does LOD have side effects?
I have PCOS and my doctor recommends I do laparoscopic ovarian drilling (LOD). May I know what are the side effects or complications of this procedure? How long after the surgery can I go for IVF?

Answer from the Doctor
The side effects of LOD are the effects from anaesthesia, pain and scars. In some extreme and rare cases, there will be bleeding from the ovaries causing early menopause and reducing the egg pool in the ovaries. Normally, patients should wait about 1 or 2 months before starting their IVF cycle.
