RCOG | Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome

RCOG | Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome

This is a new guideline from the RCOG on managing ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHS). Most patients will ultimately be managed in secondary care, but we need to be aware of it, as most women apparently attend the GP first. Two important points if you read no further!

  1. Most women present with abdominal pain and distention after their ‘trigger injection’.
  2. NSAIDs should be avoided as they can trigger renal failure.

As I wasn’t very confident at knowing what to look for and how to assess patients, I am doing a general summary.
