Is IVF, Egg donation or other assisted reproduction techniques painful?

Assisted reproduction techniques can be unpleasant as they involve the stimulation of the ovaries via injected hormones either subcutaneously or intramuscularly.

The most unpleasant procedure is the egg retrieval for IVF which is carried out using transvaginal ovarian puncture guided by ultrasound scan but a light anaesthetic is used to avoid any discomfort.
