Brief Summary:
Laparoscopic Ovarian Drilling is a valid procedure for infertile anovulatory women with polycystic ovarian syndrome who failed to get pregnant or to ovulate with ovulation induction medications as clomiphene citrate or exogenous gonadotropins. The reasearchers supposed that endometrial curettage at time of laparoscopic ovarian drilling may boost fertility in these women.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Infertility Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Procedure: Endometrial Currettage Phase 4

Detailed Description:
Current literature suggests that endometrial biopsy may improve pregnancy rates in infertile women hence the investigators will examine whether this hypothesis will apply to infertile PCOS women undergoing laparoscopic ovarian drilling to overcome ovulatory disfunction or not.
