Under ultrasound guidance, oocytes are aspirated from both ovaries. The ultrasound probe is fitted with a needle to pierce the vaginal wall and puncture the follicle. The aspirated follicular fluid is examined under microscope to identify the oocyte/oocytes. The retrieved oocytes are then washed with appropriate solution and placed in a culture dish containing nutrient fluids. The dish is now kept in the incubator.
