IVF and Egg Collection
In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) gives many couples their best chance of falling pregnant and is typically used to overcome some of the most common causes of infertility, including endometriosis, male infertility and unexplained infertility.
During IVF ovaries are stimulated to produce eggs that are collected by a fertility specialist during the simple procedure.
All Primary IVF egg collection will be undertaken at Panch Day Surgery, which is located only a short distance from Primary IVF in Preston where Doctor appointments, blood tests, ultrasound monitoring and counselling services are situated.
Eggs are prepared and placed with sperm for fertilisation in Primary IVF’s laboratory which is located directly below PANCH Day Surgery. The fertilised embryos grow over five days and are then transferred into the woman’s uterus in a simple embryo transfer procedure; a technique that is similar to a pap smear.
How long is the egg collection procedure?
The egg collection procedure usually takes around 15 to 20 minutes. The IVF scientists are in theatre alongside the fertility specialist, examining the follicular fluid for eggs and then transporting them carefully to the laboratory downstairs for fertilisation. During this procedure, patients will be given a light sedation anaesthetic, the same as used in a colonoscopy.
How will you feel after surgery?
Patients may have some cramping after the egg collection procedure. Your doctor or IVF specialist will meet with you afterwards before you leave PANCH Day Surgery to advise you about the number of eggs collected and what you need to do next.
