Egg Retrieval

Once your follicles, within which the eggs develop, reach the optimal size you will be advised the date and time for the ‘trigger’ injection.

This injection will have to be administered 34-36 hours prior to your egg retrieval, depending on the advice you receive from the fertility team.
