OHSS and egg quality

Postby geeky_gab » Sun Dec 17, 2017 7:47 am

Good morning ladies,

I am going through an IVF cycle and my doctor said I was having symptoms of OHSS. I will not be having a fresh cycle this time around but I am worried about the outcome and the number of embryos that could be produced this cycle.
I have about 20 follicles that are 15mm, they are all growing at a similar rate, 10 are smaller. They did not give me the numbers for Estradiol but mentionned it was high. Retrival should be on Wednesday, so on day 12. I am very worried about egg quality and our odds for fertilization and the rest.

Has anyone had retrieval and a good number of healthy embryos during a cycle where you overstimulated?

Any stories?

Thank you so much :)

Yep,me 22 eggs retrieved,19 were mature enough and I got 9 embryos,6 of them A quality and 3 B.
Although the OHSS can have an effect on the quality it has more to do to your egg quality and the sperm.
I started an OHSS diet days before ER and that combined with a non hcg trigger shot helped me get torugh the OHSS.

Thanks Danaa!
I was put on Dostinex before and after retrival. I also got a non hcg trigger shot, Suprefact.
I am drinking Gatorade and eating well, not too salty and lean. I was not instructed any specific diet in that sense, only the electrolytes. Thanks for sharing with me :)
