What does a collapsed ovary mean?

I had my IVF cycle recently, 18 eggs but only 2 fertilized ( I was told sperm test was normal and eggs were mature). I had mild OHSS right after egg retrieval. 2 embryos transfered on day 3, but they did not survive. After a mense period, the pain still exists on both sides. I went to my IVF doctor who told me that my right ovary is enlarged with fluid in it. And the left one is collapsed, there’s not any follicles left on the left ovary. I was assured that there’s no permanent damage caused by this cycle. I have been googling about female reproductive system laterly. If there’s no follicle, there will be no egg, no ovulation. Baseline ultra sound showed that I used to have 3 - 4 follicles on the left. Will those follicles grow back on the left ovary by itself and start ovulating again?

thanks,
Coco

Sorry I don't know much about a collapsed ovary unless cysts have formed that are pushing it flat.  IVF hormones can cause cysts.  Good luck with your fertility issues.
