OHSS QUESTIONS

Hi Lin, Waiting for 3 cycles is not that unusual, it will give you plenty of time to heal, perhaps see if your clinic will let you go after two months of you really want to get cracking

OHSS QUESTIONS

Hi Lin, Poor you, I am so sorry your cycle was cancelled but as you rightly say it was absolutely the right thing to. Late OHSS is awful and should be avioded at all costs. You may take a few weeks to feel back to normal - often with the arrival of AF. Your ovaries will be big and fragile so rest plenty and keep the fluids up your body has been through quite a bit. I have not heard of continuing with DR meds? Would be interesting to see what their thoughts were about this. On the plus side lots ...

Hi Ladies, OH and I finally had our follow up at BCRM this week. It was very useful and we feel much better about everything, the doc was lovely - we saw a different one. BUT.................. We asked about prices again and I am afraid it has definiterly put us off another BCRM cycle, the cost is now totaly prohibitive. When I queried with the consultant if we would get a refund for Blast & Assisted hatching as you now have to pay upfront for both she said no. It is definitely a one price fits ...

Hi Frankie, I wil second what Moonshine has said, BCRM admin can be a bit disorganised. I would thoroughly recommend you manage your referral along - on the BCRM website under the information section is a list of all the blood tests you and your partner will need prior to referral, BCRM are very strict about these so going to the clinic without the full list done can create delays. Take the list to your GP when you go, when the tests are all done ask for a full copy of your results and a copy of...

OHSS QUESTIONS

Oh Georgie poor you, I am so sorry you are going through this. I had both early and then late severe OHSS so know just how miserable this is for you. Firstly thank heavens your clinic didnt continue to ET, as that could have spelt much more trouble. As I understand it (I am no doctor, just knowledgeable fellow sufferer!) the normal recovery from OHSS is a gradual process of feeling better over the space of a few weeks. However I found out very quickly that the text books are not always right and...

Hi ladies, Check out the BCRM new price list on their website - its in the information section. MUCH more expensive than our last cycle in OCT/NOV I also got a refund llast cycle because we didnt have blast BUT the price list has now changed, and includes assisted hatching and Blast with NO refund!! There is a bit about it on the BCRM forum too.

OHSS QUESTIONS

Hi Tamjam, You would be considered higher risk for early OHSS if young slim and if you have PCO or PCOS or if you respond too well to drugs and produce loads and loads of eggs, late onset OHSS is a bit more random and although very rare it can happen to anyone and tends to be more severe than early OHSS. Your clinic will advise you if you are at increased risk and what to look out for, try not to worry too much it is not that common.xx

How many months till i go back to normal :-(

Hi there, Poor you, I really do hope you feel better soon. I had terrible pain in my ovaries after my cycle and it turned out to be an infection from EC that had rumbled on undetected, I did also have ohss which masked it a bit and some of my pain was from huge ovaries. If you have been scanned and had bloods done then hopefully you may get some answers. If it persists do insist they recheck you, they fobbed me off for months and I ended up having to have my very damaged ovary removed. xx

OHSS QUESTIONS

UKprincess, I am so glad you are feeling better ! Please take it easy, your cycle and the OHSS as well as the pregnancy will really have taken it out of you and you need all your strength to nurture your little bean, Take your time going back to work, you and your pregnancy are far too important, your ovaries may still be large and friable, give yourself pleny of time to recover. xxxx

Help - feeling unwell and sick since AF arrived 2 weeks ago.

Hi Lynsey, So Sorry you are feeling rotten hun Do you think your ovaries could be harbouring a little OHSS causing nausea and headaches? You should pop to clinic or your GP and get checked out, vomiting daily is not fun, nor is a constant headache there must be a reason for it. IVF takes a massive toll on us brave ladies, both physical and emotional so I really hope you feel better soon xx

OHSS QUESTIONS

My heparin jabs were called fragmin, there are several brand names, asprin during pregnancy is a tricky one and should never be taken unless advised by your doc.

Snoopy, Good luck for testing tomorrow, I so hope you get your BFP! EC went better than we hoped yesterday, the nurses were lovely and the doc came and spoke to us, she said my response was as they planned since they didnt want me to have many eggs and high OHSS risk, she said we had 4 follies which was a good response on such a low dose. In the end we got 3 eggs all of which looked mature just got to wait for the call tomorrow (sun) to see how many fert and if we have something to put back.

OHSS QUESTIONS

Ukprincess, I really feel for you! Time to throw a tantrum I think, it is not acceptable to be in pain and morphine is absolutely fine to take - it was on my clinic and hospital protocol for OHSS (And in the royal college of obstetrics & gynaecology info). Insist!! How experienced is your doc at managing OHSS cases? Perhaps it's time to see someone else? My consultant wrote morphine up for me in hospital and when I was at home the GP also gave me a bottle. It can give some people a reaction so i...

Aw thanks snoopy, I def need the PMA pig! I dont have a nn they said they don't do them anymore, I have seen someone different everytime. It's hard to know if they should have upped the dose or if it's just one of those things? How are you feeling? Will you hold out for OTD or be tempted to test a little early?

rubbish scan is there any hope?

Hi ladies, I had a second scan today, It was rubbish, I have one too large follice at 25, and 3 smaller ones at 19, 16 and 13. The clinic says I will loose the larger one and the smaller one is too small. I have been on stimms for 10 days on 150 of gonal F. The nurse said perhaps they should have upped my dose but it's too late now and with only 2 or if we are lucky 3 to use they think we should re scan on friday and poss cancel. What do I do? I am really cross they didn't think more about low n...

Bath Fertility Clinic

Hi Ladies, Bath clinic do do the bare minimum of monitoring during stimms - I only ever had one scan. Other clinics do appear to start checking your progress earlier or perhaps more frequently. I would urge you to ask the clinic for more frequent checks if you are at all worried - most of us ladies can only afford to do this once or twice and you need to feel comfortable that they are doing all they can to make your cycle a success adjusting your drugs as necessary as you go along.
