Ovarian puncture is a simple procedure that usually poses no risk to the woman, but occasionally complications arise.
Sometimes the woman feels dizziness or a drop in blood pressure due to the anesthesia administered for the procedure. For this reason, it is always recommended that the patient be accompanied to the center.
