Hello , I been on here before about clomid it didn't work so I wint and did a bunch of test and was put on perva to start my pms I did . did the ultrasound , my Dr doing an IUI . seem to be the good way to go about me I am just worried about getting OHSS not really understanding how you can get it and what can I do to low the changes of getting it ??
Hello wishing! I'm not an expert by any means, but I have done 5 IUIs, so, maybe I might know a bit! For OHSS, I think there are some risk factors to take into account (keep in mind, I'm just recalling here, not copying from any sources, lol). I don't know your age or history, but from what I recall, OHSS is more likely to occur with injectable hormones (because they tend to produce more follies), women with PCOS, younger women, and with certain (stronger types) of trigger shots. That said, if you are on a Clomid and IUI protocol, even with a trigger shot, you MIGHT not have too much to worry about, However, our bodies don't always like to do what we expect (hence the TTC struggle, lol). That said, when I did the IUIs with clomid, I didn't even have much cramping, but you could always try to take it easy afterward, stay hydrated and rely on Tylenol for pain relief. Above all, though, maybe you could talk to your doctor about your fears and questions? Best of luck!
