Abstract

This case-control study shows a strong association between migraine history and development of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). We hypothesize there may be a similar gene variant that predisposes women to both migraines and OHSS and identification will lead to optimal therapy, not only for OHSS, but also for women who suffer from migraines.
