How are eggs retreived from a woman who had a total hysterectomy?

Just the same: A hysterectomy does not make retrieving a woman's eggs more difficult. A needle is inserted through the top of the vagina, while watching with ultrasound, and into a woman's ovaries, and the eggs retrieved through the hollow needle. (amazing, isn't it?!).
