Can eggs be retrieved without a uterus?

By Andrea Rodrigo.
Last Update: 01/18/2017

Yes, if the woman has an ovary and it is functional, i.e. it has eggs and responds to medication, it is possible to perform the ovarian puncture. The extracted eggs must be fertilized in the laboratory and, subsequently, the embryos obtained, transferred to the uterus of a surrogate.

This means that, although it is possible to obtain the eggs, it will be necessary to carry out a surrogacy due to the absence of the uterus.

Suggested for you: Follicular puncture to extract the mature eggs.
