So I received some disappointing news today after my husband and I went to my final appt. before my scheduled retrieval. I have produced such a high number of follicles (plus am very thin and under 35, apparently two other risk factors) so instead of doing a fresh transfer, we are going to be freezing our eggs and doing an FET further down the road. Also, my lining wasn’t looking promising for doing a fresh transfer.
My question is, I am feeling very miserable and bloated. I am worried about developing OHSS after my retrieval Sunday since I am high risk, however, I’ve heard it would be too risky to continue with a fresh cycle after my retrieval (it can cause OHSS to flare up) So my question is, about how long can I expect the pain and bloating to stick around after my retrieval on Sunday, if I am discontinuing meds and not going on with a fresh cycle. We will freeze and try in a few months. If anyone could give me insight into this, I would appreciate it. I just need my body back mentally and physically before continuing with our frozen cycle…mostly because I’m so heartbroken we are no longer doing a fresh cycle, that I can’t imagine jumping right back into anything.
So after my retrieval Sunday, since I’m not going straight into transfer, when should the bloat and pain that everyone talks about subside? I’ve heard some people get better, then worse again after transfer…so I was wondering if I would feel like myself sooner since I am not doing a transfer.
Anyone have experience with this? Sorry, now I’m rambling. I could just cry right now because nothing is working how I’d hoped. Hope to hear from someone soon that has had a similar situation… <3
