The Egg Retrieval Process

Discusses The Egg Retrieval Donor Process

For women undergoing IVF treatment, the egg retrieval process, also known as oocyte aspiration, is done after the woman has taken fertility medication for approximately eight to twelve days.

The egg retrieval process is done at one of our hand picked surgery centers. Just prior to the procedure, the patient is put under anesthesia and the matured eggs are retrieved from both ovaries. Collection of sperm is done on the same day. Once the eggs are retrieved, they are immediately placed in the IVF laboratory, where the sperm is used to fertilize the eggs. Later, viable embryos created from the fertilization will be introduced the woman’s uterus during embryo transfer, and the wait will begin to see if an embryo has successfully implanted.
