The egg retrieval is done under conscious sedation. For the procedure, you will need to be admitted to HOPE Clinic.
The anaesthetist conducts the sedation and ensures that you have no pain.
The eggs are collected through the vagina using a guided ultrasound and ovum pick-up needle.
Once the procedure is concluded, you will be placed in recovery for monitoring. A meal and drink will be provided. When you are fully conscious you will be discharged.
A script will be supplied to you for antibiotics and pain medication.
