Yesterday we went to the hospital at 3:15. They did the retrieval sometime around 4:30 and then I went back to one of the recovery rooms. While I was in the back, they took Harris to give a fresh semen sample.
aprox. 20 follicles drained (according to Harris-I was out of it)
11 were empty
9 had oocytes
7 of those were mature & have been ICSI'd this morning (according to Dr. Shivani)
For those who are interested in the details...
I had no bleeding after the procedure or this morning. I have some oddly placed aches, but I feel so much less pressure in my abdomen since the follicles were drained. The only thing I didn't anticipate was the mild cramping & urgency I'd feel when I need to pee. I guess my ovaries are in the same general area with my bladder, and that it would kind of make sense. Currently, I am 4 meds including one antibiotic & a pain pill.
