Then, when the eggs mature, a  final Hcg injection shot is given, to loosen the ovarian wall for egg release while picking. Meanwhile, the receptor’s uterus is constantly invigilated to develop and strengthen the uterus for conception and child-bearing.

When a viable embryo is ready, after the brief screening, it is implanted in the receptors’ uterus, and the woman is asked to take a pregnancy test after 15 days.
