Can you do embryo transfer with OHSS?

The eventual pregnancy rate was 52.27% in all women admitted with OHSS. The pregnancy outcome in OHSS patients who received fresh embryo transfer was 56.52% and with frozen embryo transfer 50%. The main indications for fertility treatment in OHSS cases were male factor (31%) and polycystic ovarian syndrome (14%).

Does OHSS affect implantation?

The haemoconcentration, electrolyte imbalance, hypoxia, liver and renal dysfunction that are present in severe and critical OHSS may cause haemodynamic instability that is probably not harmful to the implantation process but may affect early pregnancy subsequent to implantation.

Does OHSS affect embryo quality?

Conclusion(s): The inferior quality and maturity of oocytes in OHSS reduced the fertilization rate but did not affect the quality or the number of embryos transferred or the pregnancy rate.

Can endometriosis affect frozen embryo transfer?

Endometriosis does not impact live-birth rates in frozen embryo transfers of euploid blastocysts. Fertil Steril.

How can I prevent OHSS in IVF?

Strategies to help prevent OHSS include:

  1. Adjusting medication. Your doctor uses the lowest possible dose of gonadotropins to stimulate your ovaries and trigger ovulation.
  2. Adding medication.
  3. Coasting.
  4. Avoiding use of an HCG trigger shot.
  5. Freezing embryos.

How long does it take for ovaries to return to normal size after IVF?

It may take a couple weeks for your ovaries to return to normal size. If bloating and discomfort increases over the 7-10 days after your retrieval, let your nurse coordinator know. You are able to resume normal activity the day after your procedure as tolerated.

Does OHSS reduce egg quality?

OHSS is also associated with poor egg/embryo quality. This is especially so in women with high ovarian LH-induced testosterone (e.g. those with PCOS). These often present with poorly developed (“dysmorphic”) eggs, with reduced fertilization potential and yielding “poor quality embryos”.

How do you prevent hyperstimulation in IVF?

When is frozen embryo transfer done in IVF?

The embryo transfer is scheduled based on when progesterone supplementation was started and on what stage the embryo was cryopreserved. For example, if the embryo was cryopreserved on day 5 post-egg-retrieval, then the frozen embryo transfer will be timed for day 6 after progesterone supplementation starts.

What happens if you do not get to the embryo transfer stage?

Not getting to the embryo transfer stage can be painful. Having one canceled or delayed cycle does not mean your next cycle is destined for the same unfortunate ending. Sometimes, you may be able to go through with the cycle despite recommendations to cancel or indications of a poor prognosis.

What happens to the embryos after a cancelled IVF cycle?

This may occur before the trigger shot, before the egg retrieval, or after egg retrieval. If cancellation occurs after egg retrieval, and some healthy embryos develop in the lab, those embryos may be cryopreserved. They can later be thawed and transferred via a frozen embryo transfer cycle, or FET.

Can a woman get OHSS without fertility treatment?

And there are some very rare cases where OHSS can happen without fertility treatments. Risk factors include things like having polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or having a large number of follicles in any given cycle. Women younger than age 35 are also at a higher risk of developing this complication.

How are the eggs transferred to the lab for IVF?

The IVF process involves stimulating egg production to later retrieve the eggs and fertilize them in a lab. After that, the embryos are transferred back into the uterus with the hope of implantation.
