Egg collection

Hello! I have my first egg collection confirmed for this Saturday and I was just wondering if any of you have any tips or tricks ahead of the procedure? Nervous and excited!

Thank you 😊

I was really nervous for mine but I don’t remember any of it thanks to the amazing sedation at my clinic. I only had 6 eggs but it’s quality that counts and I’m currently 8w2d pregnant.

Hope it goes well. I was hungry after so you may want to take a snack. Xx


Thank you 😊 and congratulations! Good luck for the rest of your pregnancy x

Take some comfy clothes, have dinner prepared for when u get home, try and keep calm (easier said than done) and do a play list on your iPod or phone if your allowed it in theatre with u.

I just had EC today and I don’t really remember any of it but if ur not first on the list then u may need something to distract u because u could b waiting a few hours which is when my nerve kick in

Hope that helps

Good luck with everything xxx

Ps take paracetamol with u xx


Thanks for the advice Penny24, much appreciated. Hope you’re feeling ok after ec and good luck for the rest of your journey! 😊 x
