I had my egg collection today / yesterday. I am now in pain, feeling faint and am bleeding. What shall I do?

  • It is very rare (risk < 1 in 10,000) for anybody to have a serious complication after an egg collection. The symptoms are most probably due to the effects of the sedatives you were given and some period like vaginal bleeding is common after an egg collection.
  • If you feel you need to be seen by a doctor you need to ring The Centre OR contact the On call person for The Centre who would arrange for you to be seen by a registrar on call for Gynaecology. You can also come to The Centre (working hours) or go to a local casualty for a doctor to see you.
