Fluid retention in the abdominal cavity by OHSS

Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is a situation that can occur in assisted reproduction treatments and is characterized by excessive growth of ovarian follicles, accumulation of fluid in the abdominal and lung cavities and a water imbalance in the body.

If ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome is suspected to occur in a fertility treatment, a medication other than hCG will be administered to trigger ovulation. In addition, if we were facing very serious cases of OHS, the cycle would be cancelled.
