One of the most serious complications of assisted reproduction techniques is ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). OHSS not only increases morbidity and mortality in IFV cycles, but also causes significant other problems, as cancelled in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles, prolonged hospitalization, causing emotional and sociofinancial consequences. Several treatments for OHSS have been proposed and among these Cabergoline (Cb2). Despite the above-mentioned beneficial effect, Cb2 has not been widely used in everyday's clinical practice. With our study, we try to review all studies with strong evidence examining Cb2 use for OHSS prevention.
