karystos - February 6

I have been diagnosed with moderate ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. This is my first ivf/isci. They retrieved 16 eggs so I never expected that I would have this happen to me. It has been pure hell the last 2 weeks.
The intense bloating, nausea, fainting etc. Enlarged ovaries and alot of liquid in my abdomen.
My preg test is this Thurs but I am not very hopeful.
Has anyone had similar experiences?
Any reply would help.

I know it's been a few months, how are you doing? I just went through my 6th IUI and also had ohss. How awful! Unfortunately, my symptoms decreased a couple of days ago - not a good sign for pregnancy. Waiting for af to arrive before Sat. Today is day 10 after IUI. We had our hopes up so high this time - lots of mature follicles. I've had 2 m/c and I'm just as depressed as I was then. It's awful. I hope there's good news on your side!

Unfortunately it was a BFN. I was so devastated that after all that pain and suffering, I wasn't pregnant. I ended up missing a month of work...that's how bad I had ohss.
Last week I just did my first FET transfer with 2 frozen blastocysts. My preg test is Monday so I'm crossing my fingers!

GOOD LUCK on Monday! I will be thinking positive thoughts for you. So you had ohss for longer than 2 weeks? I feel very lucky - only had it bad for a week. Did you have to wait for your ovaries to get back to normal size before trying again? Were you off work because of the pain or depression? I can't believe how bad I feel - it's easier to be phisically sick than mentally depressed!

I was off for a month because of the pain....I had trouble breathing and my abdomen was so extended, it looked like I was pregnant (cruel joke).
I was in the doctor's office for ultrasounds every other day so they could monitor my fluid. Gatorade was a big help.
I'm glad that yours didn't last as long.
Good luck this time and let me know what happens!

Well, AF showed up Thurs. am. Now it looks like it'll be at least a month (if not longer) before we can try again. I guess it'll happen when it's time. I also read your post about Monday - good luck and think positive!

I'm sorry to hear it was a negative.
We have to believe that it's just not the right time yet I guess. WE have to keep believing we will become mommies one day!
