Would you like a full anaesthetic during your treatment?

VivaNeo Ciconia in Aarhus  is one of the only Danish fertility clinics that offers a full anesthetic during egg retrieval, embryo transfer or insemination.

When a woman is having egg retrieval, this is usually done without any problems under local anesthetic and with painkillers that are given through a small needle in the back of the hand.

Transferring the fertilized egg and insemination are even more minor procedures that normally do not require a local anesthetic or painkillers. However, there may be many reasons why a woman would like to have a full anesthetic when having these procedures. Fertility Nurse Inge Neimann Herskind answers three questions here that we are often asked:

1. Why do some women want a full anaesthetic?

Some women are extremely nervous about these procedures. Some women’s past experience of egg retrieval or other gynecological investigations may have been traumatic. Other women suffer from vaginismus, which makes it difficult to carry out such procedures without it being uncomfortable for the woman.

2. Why might this be a good idea?

It is very reassuring for many women, who would not otherwise be able to have an IVF attempt or insemination. The women feel that they are in good hands and experience less stress and anxiety when they know beforehand that they can have a full anesthetic for these procedures.

3. What happens?

The woman comes to the clinic fasting and is shown into a room. This is the same room she will wake up in afterwards. Before the procedure, the anesthetist will talk with the woman and ask her if she has any allergies, previous nausea or other experiences related to an anesthetic.

When the procedure is over, the woman wakes up quickly, as she is only given a mild, short-acting anesthetic. After that, she will be monitored for a few hours. She will be offered a light snack, and we will ensure that she is absolutely fine before she leaves the clinic.

It is important that the woman has someone to drive her home as she must not drive for the following 24 hours.

If the woman has a partner with her, the partner can be there for the entire procedure if he/she so wishes.

You are welcome to contact VivaNeo Ciconia Aarhus, if you would like more information about this option.
