Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome in IUI
Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome defined as an exaggerated response to hormones. The hormones that women are given for the stimulation of ovaries to extract eggs from them can rarely cause the ovaries to have an exaggerated response resulting in swelling of the ovaries. The symptoms may range from mild pain and nausea to severe bloating, pain, nausea and blood clots. While ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome is much rarer in IUI than in IVF, it will depend on the number of eggs that need to be retrieved. Women younger than 35 and those who are underweight are more prone to ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome than other women. Talk to your fertility expert as soon as possible if you notice the symptoms of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome.
