After inducing the ovulatory process as part of the IVF cycle, the next step is to obtain follicles. This manipulation is performed through the vagina with a special needle under local or general anesthesia (as determined by the anesthesiologist). A negative pressure is created in the needle, which helps to aspire biomaterial containing female germ cells.
