Successful oocyte retrieval for the patient and for you

The oocyte is the largest cell in the human body and is extremely vulnerable. Retrieving an oocyte exposes it to considerable stress, including transfer from the follicle, passage through the needle and tubing, and exposure to the laboratory environment.

It is also a critical procedure involving a lot of anxiety for the patient.
