Hi! My name's Tasha.I'm new on this site and just in the middle of my first cycle of ICSI. Had the egg collection yesterday. I shouldn't complain as I don't feel that bad but my stomach is enormous! So bloated. I can't seem to find any info on whether or not this is normal. Can anyone help. Did you get massively bloated too and if so how long does it last for? Any replies gratefully received. Good luck to everyone out there trying.

Hi!! Welcome here- hope you find this site as tremendous a help as it has been to a lot of us..
Bloating is common if you have a tendency to overstimulation.
Maybe you had a lot of follies?
Ohss leads to bloating,and a way to combat it would be to keep drinking water.
Have you spoken to your doctor/clinic about it?

Good Luck with your cycle. :)

Hi Smita,

Thanks so much for your reply. I had 20 eggs removed so I suppose that's quite a lot of follicles. I'm going to the clinic tomorrow for ET so will ask them then if it's still bad. In the meantime i'll keep on drinking tonnes and tonnes of water! I'm constantly on the loo! Take care of yourself and your little one!,

Congratulations on the 20 eggs...that's lots. No wonder you're bloated. It will all be worth it in the end.

My abdomen got very bloated too

After egg retrieval, my abdomen got very bloated for over a week.
I was told that my hormone was too high.
My egg retrieval was on 19 April, there is no more bloating in these few days.
Good luck to your ET. :)
