USING THE BUDDY SYSTEM IS A MUST, AND PLEASE, TAKE THE DAY OFF.
We suggest that an “escort,” like a friend or family member, accompany you home from the egg retrieval. They’ll be well taken care of in the waiting room during your procedure. We recommend you go straight home and relax for the rest of the day with a responsible adult by your side, just in case. Even if some of you will probably still go back to work please plan on staying out of the driver’s seat for at least 24 hours.
After the egg retrieval process, you may experience some soreness in the vaginal area, some abdominal cramping, or some spots, which could last a few days. Over-the-counter pain relievers such as Paracetamol will help. Most women feel “back to normal” by the next day. You probably won’t need a follow-up appointment, but the we will call and check in on you, just in case. If at any time if you’re really bloated, throwing up, in a lot of pain, or otherwise feeling bad, give us a call
