To increase the chances of a successful fertility treatment, hormone treatment is always used in IVF-/ICSI-treatment and mostly also in insemination treatments.
Stimulating the hormones will increase the follicle growth, allowing more oocytes to mature in the ovaries at the same time. The hormone treatment is done as an injection once a day, for the amount of days, agreed with the fertility specialist, often 11-13 days. Without any problems, you can inject yourself at home. Our team will thoroughly guide you, so you feel safe doing it yourself. After approximately 7 days with medicine, the size and number of the follicles are checked by doing an ultrasound, and if needed, the hormone dose will be adjusted if needed.
The egg aspiration is planned, when there is at least 3 or more mature follicles. Sometimes an extra ultrasound is needed a couple of days later, before the egg aspiration can be planned.
When the follicles are mature, you must inject an ovulation stimulating hormone which fully matures the oocytes. The injection is very important and must be done at home at a certain time, which we inform you about.
If unfortunately, you forget to inject the ovulation stimulation hormone, it is not possible to retrieve the oocytes when aspirating, and this cycle must be cancelled.
Approximately 36 hours after the ovulation the mature eggs can be retrieved from the ovaries. The aspiration itself, only lasts about 10-15 minutes, and you will receive local anesthesia during the process helping to minimize any discomfort.
