1. Egg retrieval
Before the egg extraction process itself, the donor will be injected with certain medications, which control the hormonal level and stimulate more eggs production. When the medication is already working, the doctor retrieves the donor’s eggs from the ovaries with the help of a special needle and ultrasound probe. In the end, the aspirated eggs are sent to the laboratory for further medical evaluation and fertilization.
Worth mentioning is the fact that the whole egg removal process takes around 30 minutes and the feeling of pain is minimized due to sedatives.
Moreover, WCOB's best specialists are always here to give the egg donor emotional and professional support and to guarantee that the entire donation process goes smoothly and safely.
