They ask you not to wear lotion and perfume because they don't want the smells in the lab where they are working with the eggs. They can have a negative impact. By wearing perfume and lotions you are risking all the eggs in the lab, not your eggs specifically. Hopefully you will not have to have another retrieval or transfer but if you do please don't wear lotions and perfumes.
