Egg Collection 8:00am (last for 30~min)
Recovery for 2 hours

Monday - Egg retrieval

The fluid within each follicle is gently sucked out and given to the embryologists who search for the egg using a microscope. This procedure takes about 20 minutes and almost all women are fully recovered and able to go home after a couple of hours.

Monday - Insemination

Sperm and eggs are incubated overnight in a special fluid that provides them with all the right nutrients to allow fertilisation to occur. The next morning, the eggs are checked for signs of fertilisation.

Thursday- Embryo transfer

Embryos are placed gently inside the womb on the second, third or fifth day after egg retrieval. Embryo transfer is an outpatient procedure which takes only a few minutes to perform.
