Ovarian puncture is a simple surgical procedure performed to obtain oocytes in some assisted reproduction techniques. It is a short procedure, but it can be uncomfortable and painful for the patient. Therefore, anaesthesia will make the procedure more comfortable for the woman.

In addition, sedation and immobility of the patient avoid possible complications, such as puncture of blood vessels or nearby pelvic organs.
