Precautions for avoiding Ovarion Hyperstimulation!!
 
Hi,
After reading so many stories on this forum and many others online I am getting concerned about ovarian Hyperstuimulation. I am 23 and going to start my first round of IVF in near future. I have my meds which include Follistim and Cetrotide. With this age, my dr also flagged the possibility of ovHs.

Are there any set of precautions to avoid Ovarian Hyperstimulation?

Me:23yrs
DH:30yrs
TTC:2yrs

Well OHS (ovarian hyperstimulation), is what actually happens during IVF, it's the process of our ovaries producing multiple follies. I think what you're concerned about is OHSS (ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome).

Try not to worry about this, it is a risk, and that's why he has to mention it, but your Dr will be monitoring you very closely with transvaginal ultrasound scans and checking your E2 levels. I was scanned after 5 days of stimming and then every other day right up until egg collection.

You might find this fact-sheet helpful...
 


The only thing you can do to help a little is to drink plenty of water, milk or fruit juice (about 2-3 quarts a day), and do everything the Dr says.

You're gonna be fine hon :hug:
