INFERTILITY AND PCOS: OVARIAN DRILLING VS METFORMIN – (10-20-04)

Metformin Administration Versus Laparoscopic Ovarian Diathermy in Clomiphene Citrate-Resistant Women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Am I missing something here? The relationship between polycystic ovaries and metabolic syndrome is beyond reproach. Lifestyle changes to manage metabolic syndrome is the first (and, in my opinion, only) line of defense and has proven incredibly effective to eliminate insulin resistance. The few docs aware of the relationship have used metformin successfully as well, but it is not my choice. So why, why, why do we continue to have procedures like ovarian drilling and laproscopic diathermy for PCOS???? I’m not a woman and thus don’t have ovaries to deal with, but I could pretty much guess that, if I was, I would prefer not to have my reproductive organ drilled when lifestyle changes and exercise are MORE effective!! If anyone has an answer for this one, please forward it to me…
