Dr. Erika Munch Explains Egg Retrieval Day and What to Expect

Dr. Erika Munch offers insights on what to expect on egg retrieval day. The procedure typically lasts around 15 minutes. IV sedation will be administered by the anesthesiology team to ensure your comfort and eliminate any recollection of the process. Dr. Munch will navigate with ultrasound assistance, guiding a needle through the vaginal wall and into each ovary to retrieve follicular fluid and eggs from the ovarian follicles. Subsequently, this fluid is handed over to our embryologists, who meticulously identify the eggs and furnish a final count before your departure from our facility.
