Is the oocyte retrieval painful?

The experience of pain during oocyte retrieval can be determined by multiple factors. Larger ovaries with a lot of follicles can be sensible and painful. If the ovaries are positioned behind the uterus, it can be necessary to puncture the uterus, which is a painful procedure. Women with from endometriosis often suffer more. Of course, pain also depends on the individual pain barriers.
