The Pathogenesis of Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome - after stimulation with exogenous and endogenous hCG and FSH, multiple follicles are stimulated. These follicles then secrete VEGF which act on mutated VEGF receptors of vessel walls, increasing their permeability. As a result, fluid leaks from these vessels into the abdominal cavities causing ascites.
