Oocyte retrieval

Oocyte (cells that become eggs) removal for in vitro fertilization is performed using intravenous sedation. A needle is inserted under ultrasound guidance through the vagina into the follicle on the ovary. The follicles, containing the eggs, are punctured and aspirated. If the procedure is successful, one or more of the eggs will be obtained.
