: Dr. Ton first mentioned that the oocytes were responding quite well to the stimulation dosage Dr. Ton had prescribed to us. Overall, the results were very good, with over 10 oocytes (eggs) in each ovary.
After a few more days of stimulation injections at home and one final ultrasound at Beyond IVF, Dr. Ton designated the appropriate time and date for the ovum pick-up (OPU) procedure to collect the mature oocytes from my ovaries. Surprisingly, the doctor managed to collect all 33 oocytes and I was shocked as I had expected no where close to that amount. This of course turned out to be a blessing, enabling us to have our twins, for which we again need to sincerely thank the efforts of Dr. Ton and his team at Beyond IVF.
