Introduction to Infertility

In this video, Dr. Lynae Brayboy gives an overview of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). This is a rare condition that can affect women who have used injectable or oral hormone medications to stimulate the production of eggs in the ovaries. OHSS is when the ovaries become abnormally swollen and painful. Symptoms may include bloating, shortness of breath and rapid weight gain.

While OHSS is very uncommon, we do monitor all patients undergoing infertility treatments that require hormone medications for symptoms. We use both blood tests and ultrasound imaging to evaluate the likelihood of OHSS throughout the treatment process. These methods allow us to minimize the risks for our patients and prevent potential overreactions to medication.
