Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome in AI

Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome is a disorder caused by an abnormally high response of the ovary to medication and which is triggered after injection of the hCG hormone.

The risk of OHSS occurring in an artificial insemination is very low since the stimulation performed is moderate and only a few eggs are able to mature. However, it is necessary for the gynecologist to have adequate control of the treatment to avoid any risk of suffering this syndrome.
