Customer Question
OHSS from my 2nd round...
In March of this year I underwent my 3rd round of IVF. I had OHSS from my 2nd round which required brief hospitalization. After the March IVF medications, my estrogen levels skyrocketed after 5 days of menopur and Gonal-F, even when we discontinued them. I then had an egg retrieval and suffered internal bleeding. I had fluid leak in to my abdomen and then was in the hospital for 4 days. Our RE stated that my hemoglobin and hematocrit levels were off and I had anemia. I have spent the past few months slowly getting stronger, but notice that many of my anemia type symptoms - rapid heart rate, muscle cramps in my legs, shortness of breath, fatigue - still flare up. I am just wondering if this is a normal part of the healing process after this ordeal. Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
