A patient send me this email

Sir, I m having a chocolate cyst in my left ovary of 3.6*2.8 CM and a normal right ovary . My first doctor advice me for immediate laparoscopy. I am trying for around 10 months. I changed my doc as I was scared of surgery. Can you help ?

I am glad patients are speaking up and refusing to subject themselves to unnecessary surgery !

With today's technology, infertile patients do not need a laparoscopy, but doctors continue to do this for them, without any good reason. Read more at https://www.drmalpani.com/knowledge-center/infertility-testing/laparoscopy-and-infertility

Such a tiny chocolate cyst will not affect her fertility, and unnecessary surgery would actually reduces her fertility as normal ovarian tissue is also removed along with the cyst wall, thus reducing her ovarian reserve.

Patients need to learn to speak up !
