Oocyte Retrieval treatment in Hyderabad
Oocytes or ovum are female gametes that can fuse with the male gamete or sperm, which leads to fertilization. The female eggs are produced during the woman's reproductive years, and when a female ovulates, a single egg is released when it matures. It then enters the fallopian tube and comes in contact with a sperm and fertilizes and forms a pregnancy. If this egg does not fertilize, it will continue through the fallopian tubes and leave the body in the form of blood from v-agina. The oocyte retrieval process involves collecting mature eggs from female ovaries before the ovarian follicles release.
Oocyte or Egg collection process is a technique of the IVF process. This is performed to remove the oocyte from the female ovary for enabling fertilization outside the body. The egg retrieval process is quick and essentially painless and completed in 15-30 minutes.
In this surgery, the doctor uses ultrasound to identify the ovaries and then gently guide a needle attached to the catheter through the walls of the vagina. Then eggs are withdrawn out with the help of a light suction process. They are collected in a test tube and then cryopreserved. Once the oocyte retrieval process is complete, the needle is removed, and the doctor checks for the vaginal wall and ovaries. If some bleeding occurs, the cauterizing agent is used to quell the bleeding.
