Egg Retrieval

The Egg Retrieval Process

While there are numerous steps with the egg donation process, at The Donor Solution, we are here with you every step of the way. The egg retrieval process can sound daunting, but we work with you to make the entire procedure as comfortable as possible.

Egg retrieval takes place under a form of sedation, so you will not experience pain. The technique that is used to collect eggs is called an ultrasound-guided transvaginal aspiration.

Through this procedure, a needle is attached to an ultrasound probe, and is then inserted into the vagina. One of our partner IVF clinic physicians uses this ultrasound to locate the ovaries and then the ovarian follicles. The inserted needle is used to puncture the ovarian follicle while a gentle suction technique then removes the egg and the fluid surrounding the egg.

The egg retrieval procedure is performed on both ovaries, and usually only requires about 15 minutes.
