The pain after egg retrieval it’s also something which varies a lot from one patient to another and their capacity of supporting pain.Egg retrieval is a very safe procedure and it shouldn’t be painful. It might be a little bit of a discomfort and you can actually have some sort of an analgesic at home after the retrieval – we sort of indicate that in case of any discomfort but hurt or or pain it it’s not very common and basically it’s more common in patients that have a high ovarian reserve or high response in which ovaries get really really big while going through the stimulation and through the IVF protocol.
