Egg collection is a simple surgical procedure performed with vaginal aspiration in accompany of ultrasound. Egg pick-up process is performed under general anesthesia (sedation anesthesia) at our center. The vagina is entered by ultrasound probe to identify mature follicles then the follicle is entered by a needle. The eggs are then aspirated by needle attached to a pump unit from follicles. Egg collection process is usually completed in 10-20 minutes. Some patients might experience cramp-like pains on the day of process but it will subside the following day. Feeling swollen and/or compressed might continue for a few weeks after the procedure because the state of grown eggs continues in that period.
