The stimulation is complete when the follicles reach the right size (a diameter between 18 and 20mm) and in this way the day and time of the egg collection is specified.
The egg collection is performed transvaginally with the aid of ultrasound monitoring and under the influence of light anaesthesia (without general anaesthesia).
The procedure is painless and it requires only a rest of 30 minutes to 1 hour after its completion. On the same day the husband’s semen is also collected in a specially designed place (men’s room).
The sample is then properly processed so as to perform the fertilization.
