  • Hope all is well for everyone!! Today is stim day 7 my dr is monitoring me very closely due to large number of follicles he has lowered my doses and said I'm at risk for OHSS. Has any one be threw this? My dr is not going to cancel the cycle because he feels he can control it with lower the dose. I have researched OHSS and it sounds like it can get pretty bad. any advise??

    Ja love

  • I had that with my third cycle of IVF. Well they thought I would OHSS, but I didn't. THey lowerd my doses and I did fine. Just do EVERYTHING they tell you to do even after your retreival!!!!!!!!!!! Drink lots of gaterade. Something with the electrolytes helps to use the fluid that your follicles produce after retrevial. Good luck I will check back with you. When is your retrieval and transfer scheduled???
