Pain 3 days after EC...?

I had my egg collection on Friday morning and I’ve been uncomfortable since. I expected this; I knew the whole area would be tender and sore, but it seems to be getting worse, not better!

My abdomen feels so full - like I’ve eaten a meal far too big and my bladder is too full (kind of like the painful bladder you get when you’ve slept solidly and woke up needing a pee so bad that walking hurts!). Movement hurts - walking, getting up, climbing stairs etc. Even shifting position or laughing can cause pain. It’s like a pressure rather than an ache.

I don’t think it’s OHSS - I don’t feel sick and haven’t been sick (maybe a little queasy), haven’t had diarrhoea and am not having trouble passing urine. Is this much discomfort normal? It’s IVF#1, so I’m not sure what’s expected and what’s not!

I had all that and was put on blood thinners as they suspected mild ohss. Call your clinic.
