Majority of cases of PCOS were in age group 20-30 years. 72% of cases were having primary infertility and 28% were having secondary infertility. 41.86% of cases were resistant to CC given in a dose of 150 mg for three consecutive cycles. Conception rate was 66% in 6 month follow up period after LOD.

Conclusion: Laparoscopic ovarian drilling with diathermy should be considered to be a preferred choice for the infertile women with history of failed response to clomiphene treatment as compared to the use of gonadotrphins. Key Words: Polycystic ovary syndrome, Laparoscopic ovarian drilling, Clomiphene citrate resistance
