Oocyte aspiration (pick-up)

34 to 36 hours later, i.e. two days after the hCG injection, the follicles are usually aspired from the vagina with the help of ultrasound and a fine needle (follicle puncture). To reduce any discomfort, you will receive a small dose of painkillers, a sedative or a weak aesthetic.
Please note:
Please arrive with an empty stomach (no food or fluids for 6 hours) and bring your partner along to the surgery appointment. We usually carry out this procedure between 8 to 12 am. Your partner will be asked to provide a semen sample obtained by masturbation. It is possible to bring the semen sample along with you, but it should arrive within an hour after collection and transported in a plastic cup provided by us. Should there be difficulties, please tell us. We will find a solution that is acceptable for your partner. After the puncture you remain in the surgery for an hour before going home. The next day, depending on the fertilisation results, we will call you to arrange an appointment for the embryo transfer.
