In brief: Do you mean

Side effects or risks? An egg retrieval is a procedure so there really are not 'side effects, ' there are results: belly soreness, feeling tired, crampy feeling, brief nausea are all possible and common.
Do you mean risks? Risks are very low but can include bleeding, infection, and failure to recover eggs; discuss these with your own ivf doctor and good luck.
