Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), one of the iatrogenic complications resulting from follicle stimulating medications administered during fertility treatment, affects up to 10% of women undergoing IVF [in vitro fertilization].
A recent study published in the journal, Fertility and Sterility reports that low dose aspirin therapy administered during ovulation induction could be effective in preventing OHSS in high-risk populations.

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION
Making Babies the Hard Way: Living with In-fertility and Treatment
- a frank account of one couple's discovery that they cannot have children of their own, and their ensuing struggle through four years of fertility treatment. One in six couples worldwide seek assistance to conceive and 80 per cent of couples undergoing fertility treatment are currently unsuccessful.
Writing with humour and honesty, Caroline Gallup describes the social, emotional, spiritual and physical impact of in-fertility on her and her husband, Bruce, including feelings of bereavement for the absent child, the unavoidable sense of inadequacy and the day-to-day difficulties of financial pressure.
As well as telling her own moving story, she also offers information and guidance for others who are in-fertile, or who are considering or undergoing treatment.
