Just thought i'd share my egg collection story as i went in terrified after reading lots of negative posts about pain during and after.
I was sedated and didn't feel any pain during collection. I have been a little uncomfortable afterwards and walking to the local shop and back was as much as i could manage the day after but it's not as bad as a period for me (I have endometriosis and i'm used to a very painful couple of days).
So if you're about to go for ec don't panic! I know everyones experience is different but it's not that bad for everyone.
Good luck to all ladies on the infertility journey xx
