First of all Happy Valentine's Day ladies! I hope you all have a relaxed day planned whether you stay in or go out!
Tomorrow I will hopefully be starting injections for IVF cycle #2. My last cycle I got 27 eggs and got OHSS. I would really like to try to avoid getting it again so I can try another go with a fresh transfer with PGD! I know there's no guarantee and OHSS can't really be avoided but what were the tips you were told to do while stimming to help with preventing OHSS? I know keep myself hydrated and drink lots of water, Gatorade, eat lots of protein and salty foods. Anything else? My nurse also said to avoid caffeine and alcohol.
Thanks in advance ladies!
