Egg retrieval, also known as follicular puncture, is an essential procedure in assisted reproduction. At Ingenes, this step is essential to achieve the dream of many couples: having a baby. But what exactly does this process entail and how is it carried out?
Egg retrieval is a technique used to extract eggs directly from a woman's ovaries. This procedure is crucial in treatments such as In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and is performed once the ovarian follicles have reached an adequate size and maturity, which is monitored through ultrasounds and hormonal analysis.
During the egg retrieval, the patient is under sedation to ensure her comfort. Using ultrasound technology, Ingenes doctors guide a thin needle through the vaginal wall to the ovaries, where mature eggs are carefully aspirated. This precise technique minimizes risk and ensures an effective collection of high-quality eggs.
At Ingenes, we use the most advanced technology for egg retrieval. This not only increases the success rates of egg collection but also ensures maximum safety for our patients. The use of state-of-the-art equipment allows the procedure to be carried out with the greatest possible precision.
Preparation for egg retrieval includes a series of specific steps designed to maximize the chances of success. This includes controlled ovarian stimulation and close monitoring. Afterward, recovery is generally rapid, allowing most women to return to normal activities soon after.
Once the eggs are collected, the fertilization process begins in the laboratory. Here at Ingenes, each egg is carefully evaluated and selected for fertilization, either through traditional insemination or through techniques such as ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection).
At Ingenes, we understand that egg retrieval can be an exciting but stressful step for many couples. Therefore, we offer a supportive and advisory environment throughout the entire process, ensuring that each patient feels informed, comfortable, and safe.
Egg retrieval is just one of many steps on the path to finding your baby. At Ingenes, we are committed to offering comprehensive and personalized treatment, which includes not only advanced medical procedures but also a holistic and empathetic approach to fertility.
