I was just curious, I have PCOS and I have been using Follistim with Femara. The first time I did this cocktail with the ovidrel trigger I went into OHSS. This is the second round of meds and I developed 8 follicles with 4 following behind, had the LH surge and the RE encouraged me to skip this month, well I went back and looks like I didn’t ovulate anyways on my own, but the 8 had shrunk and the 4 were in prime condition. I go back on Friday again for another repeat, but these ones are going down too. My question is, is this normal to develop so many follicles with PCOS, if it is, do you guys bypass the HCG trigger, unfortunately that looks like the only way I will ovulate.
The RE makes it seem like with PCOS and having a history of the OHSS that it is pretty much inevitable that this is going to be a repeated occurance, and I hoping for some reassurance that it won’t be and some hope that my follicle count won’t be so high.
Any help you guys can give me I would greatly appreciate it.
