OHSS

Hello, quick question for everyone...

I had my ER Monday and I'm still feeling some pain. I don't want to be dramatic if this is normal for 3 days later, but I also don't want to ignore the if it's possible something could be wrong.

Its not crippling pain, but a lot of pressure in my whole abdomen area, and really terrible pain when my bladder is full. I can barely walk to the bathroom, and peeing is painful at first. But then after its empty, I'm pretty much back to little to no pain at all.  The only other time is when transitioning from sitting to standing/walking. It still takes me some time and I have to go really slow.

Other than that, I'm ok. So my question is, should I call my dr and be worried about OHSS, or is this normal stuff and wait it out with a lazy day on the couch with lots of gatorade?

 

Thanks in advance!

Re: OHSS

  • When in doubt I always call.  Better safe than sorry.  That being said I'm not sure it's that unusual to still be sore.

    I did end up hospitalized with severe OHSS and it didn't really kick in until after ET.  I was hospitalized at 7dp5dt.  Make sure to continue with the Gatorade and even Coconut water if you get sick of the Gatorade or don't want that much sugar.  Also, try to eat foods high in protein.  And watch your weight.  I gained 10 lbs in a matter of days and had a huge belly due to all the fluid.   

    Good luck! 


    After more than 2 years of fertility treatments, FET did the trick!

  • I would say you are recovering from having been poked in the ovaries quite a bit. :) It is pretty normal to be quite sore for many days after ER. Now if the bloat goes down after your ET and then comes back with even worse symptoms, then you most likely have OHSS. Good Luck!

  • Day of ER was the worst for me, but I had quite a few eggs and was pretty sore until my 5dt.  As long as I made sure to pee every 1 hour (even if I didn't have to) I seemed to be okay.  It was 3 full days before I didn't feel like I was going to break everytime I moved and I did not have OHSS.  But I agree with PP, when in doubt, call
