Ovarian hyper stimulation syndrome or OHSS is a rare complication that results from stimulation during a fertility treatment. The manifestation of this syndrome can range from mild discomfort to, in rare cases, a serious illness for which hospitalization is required. Serious cases of OHSS are very rare. This information should serve the purpose of informing patients of the most serious problems and to ensure that patients do not become overly concerned if light symptoms appear. Careful planning is part of the stimulation treatment and it occurs under strict supervision. Nevertheless, it is not always possible to prevent overstimulation.
On the one hand, the process seeks to produce positive results for the patient and, on the other hand, the reaction of the body is personal and unpredictable. Nevertheless, overstimulation is rare and can be well countered with practical or medicinal intervention.
