How does one go from poor/slow responder to a candidate for OHSS?
In my first IVF cycle, I was categorized as a poor/slow responder and they had to constantly up my meds and on a good day I had 5 measurable follicles and after 13 days of stims, I had a max E2 of 1900.
Now this cycle, I am on 7 day of stims with an E2 of 4200 and 10 medium sized follicles ranging from 12 to 18 mm. My nurse called me today and said that they are "coasting" me. Basically, keeping me on a holding pattern hoping that my E2 rise will stop and they can do the ER. She also gave me instructions to drink gatorade and eat protein to prevent OHSS.
I'm thinking: What the hell? What is going on with my body? Can't it make up it's mind?
Last cycle they wanted to cancel me due to poor response and this cycle due to OHSS.
Oh yeah, and the only clothes that still fit me are the great maternity/fertility pants!
