Fresh cycle canceled - ohss. Fet#1 failed (2 5aa blasts), hCG was 6. Fet2 will be from same batch of eggs. What went wrong? Will "it" happen again?

Fresh cycle canceled - ohss. Fet#1 failed (2 5aa blasts), hCG was 6. Fet2 will be from same batch of eggs. What went wrong? Will "it" happen again?

OHSS: Ovarian hyperstimulation happens when your ovaries respond too much to the fsh simulation. Canceling the embryo transfer avoids the potential complications of this problem. Fet can then be done. There are many factors that go into successful outcomes. Factors include egg and sperm quality, embryo quality, uterine health. Also keep in mind that embryo quality assessments have limitations. ...Read more

My sternum is painful with an egg shaped knot at the base. I had an X-ray and was told nothing looked abnormal. The pain is low grade but constant.

Sternal pain: More history and exam is needed to further make suggestions. Chances are the pain is coming from the muscles around your sternum or a cartilage attached to it. The condition is known as costochondritis. Xrays would be normal in that condition. You warm applications, anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen/naproxen would be appropriate, avoidance of activities known to make it worse. ...Read more

Make : Make sure you are eating six small healthy meals/snacks a day. This will help boost your metabolism. Consider makng an appointment with a registered dietician for a meal plan. Often times we think we are eating perfectly and actually we are not.
Also see your doctor to rule out any possible medical problems that could possibly be impeding your weight loss. Also after reviewing your bmi (body mass index) which is 24, you are actually in a healthy weight range, which could be why you are not losing and merely maintaining.
Take care. ...Read more

Ok that i cut out sweet potatoes and bread or was i wrong doing so? I'm tryin to lose weight, usually eat vegs, white meat, beans, 1 egg a day.

Ok that i cut out sweet potatoes and bread or was i wrong doing so? I'm tryin to lose weight, usually eat vegs, white meat, beans, 1 egg a day.

Wise to reduce bread: Most experts would agree that avoiding bread helps people to lose weight- it is wise to minimize starches, esp. Those that raise blood sugar as much as bread does. However, sweet potatoes have many useful nutrients and don't raise blood sugar nearly as much as bread or white potatoes, so i see no need to cut them out- see http://www.Whfoods.Com/genpage.Php?Tname=foodspice&dbid=64 for more info. ...Read more

I want to know why it is wrong to apply pure white vinegar and two eggs nonoxynol-9 inside the vagina.

I want to know why it is wrong to apply pure white vinegar and two eggs nonoxynol-9 inside the vagina.

No need, why do it?: Nonoxynol-9 before sex is a spermicide contraceptive but not very effective; always use with condom. Repeated or frequent N9 can be harmful. Why egg whites or vinegar? What are you trying to treat? Douching (vaginal wash) with vinegar (or anything else) is not necessary for cleanliness, doesn't help health, often is harmful. Ignore family, friends and folklore about vaginal health; get MD advice. ...Read more

I had a peak fertility on my digital opk cd 11-12. On cd 17 I had egg white mucus. When did I ovulate? Was opk wrong?

The opk may be wrong: The digital lh monitors are good but there can be false positives. On the other hand clear cervical mucus is a good but not perfect sign of high estradiol usually from ovulation but can be from an ovarian cyst. Consider working with a physician to check via ultrasound or blood to better know your cycle if this happens repetitively. Also when the next cycle comes or you have a +preg test will help ...Read more
