The actual retrieval and freezing is the easy part. You will be under twilight anesthesia when we use an ultrasound guided needle to aspirate your mature eggs from the follicles on your ovaries. The whole process takes place in our office and takes only about 30 minutes from start to finish.
Other than some light cramping afterward, the procedure is quite painless. You may want to take it easy for a couple days, but you will be able to return to work the next day.
