5. Egg retrieval

Once the follicles have reached the desired size and the hormones levels have increased we will program the extraction. The eggs are retrieved using a thin and flexible needle that is guided to the ovaries with an ultrasound probe. It is a quick and simple procedure.

 

It is an ambulatory procedure, so you may go home a couple of hours after the procedure is done if and when you are accompanied by another adult. For your safety we will not allow you to drive after being administered the sedation.
