I had my egg retrieval this past Saturday and this week I have had the worst lower back pain of my life. Every morning I’ve been waking up extremely tight and have to use a heating pad to loosen up. During the injections my back was hurting a bit, but it’s gotten worse. Have others had this happen? If so, when did it go away?

This does not sound like OHSS; I would just call your IVF clinic to run your symptoms by a nurse.

Thanks all! I shouldn’t have said worse pain in my life. I’ve for sure had worse. Appreciate your insights and help!

This sounds unrelated to the stim and retrieval. Would definitely go see your primary care though.

Oh god this awaits me in a month so scared. Is this for egg freezing or IVF?

Thank you so much for this explanation! I’m in same sex marriage and have IVF planned end of March and so scared of pain. So if it’s the same as egg retrieval, I’ve heard from friends it was bad but not a disaster.

Please let us know what they say! I hope nothing to worry about. I’m also getting ready for egg freezing procedure and am really scared

It's not bad! They prepare you with IV, have doctor/nurse come talk to you and explain the whole procedure, once you're in operation room and ready, you will be put into sleep within a few seconds, you won't feel anything during the procedure! YOU GOT THIS!!! ❤️

Hey mates,

So just a reminder to love yourself and to reach out if you need support!

Has anyone been advised to get genetic counseling for breast/ovarian cancer during their initial fertility meeting? Specialist seems to be pushing the tests based on background.
