I was injected with the pregnyl on Saturday morning. On Sunday early morning at 4am, i started to have stomach pain. The whole day i just cant walk or do anything. So i was bed rest. I guess due to the forced ovulations I'm having this symptoms. Doctor did mention that i do have quite a good number of follicles which are matured enough and might be having stomach pain. But never thought it will be this severe till i cant stand or walk.

Searched the net and this is what i found regarding the Pregnyl.

Some women using this medicine have developed a condition called ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), especially after the first treatment cycle. OHSS can be a life-threatening condition. Call your doctor right away if you have any of the following symptoms of OHSS:

  • severe pelvic pain;

  • swelling of the hands or legs;

  • stomach pain and swelling;

  • shortness of breath;

  • weight gain;

  • diarrhea;

  • nausea or vomiting; or

  • urinating less than normal.

This medication can cause early puberty in young boys. Call your doctor if a boy using this medicine shows early signs of puberty, such as a deepened voice, pubic hair growth, and increased acne or sweating.

Less serious side effects may include:

  • headache;

  • feeling restless or irritable;

  • mild swelling or water weight gain;

  • depression;

  • breast tenderness or swelling; or

  • pain, swelling, or irritation where the injection is given.
