Caffeine May Prevent OHSS
Over 40,000 women undergoing IVF treatments each year develop Ovarian HyperStimulation Syndrome, commonly known as OHSS. While the symptoms of this syndrome are usually mild causing only mild bloating, weight gain, or abdominal pain, in some cases this condition can be fatal and may lead to serious blood clots, kidney damage or ovarian damage. A new study out of England, however, now shows that drinking a strong cup of coffee, or caffeinated beverage, may help to prevent the onset of OHSS. If you are undergoing IVF you may want to consider drinking a good cup of coffee with every treatment cycle.
