Apr 10, 2024
In this blog, we dissect our recent YouTube video offering a behind-the-scenes look at our San Diego fertility center. Explore the intricate process of an egg retrieval and implantation firsthand.

Welcome to Gen 5 Fertility Center, where the journey to parenthood is not just a goal but a shared commitment. In this blog, we break down our latest YouTube video which takes you on a unique behind-the-scenes tour of our fertility center in San Diego, California, showcasing the intricate procedure of an egg retrieval and implantation.

Step 1: Stimulation and Monitoring
The journey begins with closely monitored therapy aimed at stimulating the growth of healthy follicles. On retrieval day, patients enter our state-of-the-art operating room, where our physicians utilize ultrasound technology to locate and retrieve each follicle containing eggs. This process is carefully executed, ensuring the comfort and safety of our patients throughout.

Step 2: Egg Retrieval
During the egg retrieval, our physicians navigate the ovaries with precision, delicately extracting each follicle containing eggs using techniques that minimize any discomfort. With a keen focus on patient well-being, we strive to make every step of the process as stress-free as possible.

Step 3: Fertilization and Selection in The Lab
In the laboratory, our team of embryologists carefully inspects each retrieved egg, selecting the healthiest specimens for fertilization. The fertilized eggs then undergo a transformative process, culminating in the creation of blastocysts ready for transfer, setting the next stage for IVF.

Step 4: Embryo Transfer And Implantation
The transfer procedure itself is a brief yet crucial step in the journey. Guided by ultrasound imaging, our physicians delicately position the embryo for implantation into the uterus, prepping the body for the potential start of a new life.
