niceinfo - November 4

Unprescribed Clomid Thanks to the internet, it is now easier than ever for women to get their hands on Clomid. As a result, a number of women who are not experiencing fertility problems have begun using Clomid as an inexpensive way to increase their chances of conceiving twins. Although Clomid can increase the chances of conceiving multiples compared to the general population, many agree that this increase is not significant. Moreover, the use of unprescribed Clomid is both dangerous and possibly detrimental to your chances of conceiving. Since the drug is not prescribed, health care providers cannot properly monitor their patients that are using it. Without close monitoring, it is difficult to know whether or not the Clomid is even affecting your body. Additionally, it can cause the signs of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) to go unnoticed. OHSS is a serious complication in any woman who uses fertility drugs and severe cases require immediate medical attention. Even if OHSS does not occur, women who use Clomid but do not have any ovulation problems may actually be making their body less effective at getting pregnant. Using Clomid unnecessarily can create new problems, such as making your cervical mucus hostile to your partner’s sperm, thereby lowering your chances of successfully conceiving. - November 4

complications of ohss - November 4

RISKS INVOLVED IN TAKING FERTILITY MEDICATION Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is potentially the most serious complication that can arise from the use of fertility medications. Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome is a condition that can usually be predicted before it occurs, but it sometimes occurs when only minimal risk factors exist. The following risk factors increase the risk for ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome: Women with polycystic ovarian syndrome. Women with high Estradiol (E2) levels (>5000 pmal/L) measured by blood tests especially when a__sociated with numerous small follicles (<7.4 cm) on ultrasound. A previous history of ovarian hyperstimulation. In order to reduce the risk of OHSS, daily blood monitoring of Estradiol (E2) and daily transv____al ultrasounds near the time of ovulation are done to monitor the number and size of developing follicles. Some women may be more sensitive or resistant to these fertility medications, but careful daily monitoring is the key to prevention. Symptoms of ovarian hyperstimulation include abdominal pain or discomfort, abdominal distension, nausea, dizziness, increased thirst, decreased urinary output, or shortness of breath. Fortunately, this condition is extremely rare and almost never occurs in severe form unless a woman becomes pregnant. Therefore, in the situation of oocyte donation, the donor has little chance of developing this condition. It is caused by enlargement of the ovaries following gonadotropin administration, which in turn causes abdominal discomfort and pain, abdominal swelling and bloating, shortness of breath, decreased urinary output, and weight gain.

OHSS is NOT fun... - January 13

...especially when it requires hospitalization and intervention. I can't imagine my fate had I been taking illegally obtained medication with no monitoring. Something to keep in mind...
