A case of laparoscopic ovarian drilling (LOD) in a 28-year-old nulligravida diagnosed of primary infertility secondary to polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) with clomiphene citrate resistance, letrozole, and gonadotrophin failure is reported. Her husband's seminal fluid analysis was within the normal range. Laparoscopy and dye test showed copious bilateral tubal spillage of dye. LOD was performed, following which pregnancy was achieved. She was delivered of a live female baby that weighed 3.8 kg. Her postpartum period was uneventful. The literature on polycystic ovaries, infertility, and ovarian drilling was reviewed.
