Egg retrieval is conducted under vaginal ultrasound guidance. First, the vagina is cleansed with normal saline. The vaginal ultrasound probe will be put into the vagina and the ovarian follicles can be found. A 17-gauge needle is directed with the back wall of the vagina and in to the ovarian follicles. The fluid is aspirated after which examined by an embryologist to recognize the microscopic egg. All follicles within both ovaries are aspirated. When the eggs are retrieved, they are put into culture plates with nutrient media after that put into the incubator. The process is performed under light anesthesia and usually takes about 10-15 minutes to complete. Prophylactic antibiotics are routinely administered. The overall complication rates are less 1%.
