If I was uncomfortable speaking to the patient about egg retrieval, then I would provider the patient with reputable resources (websites, hand-outs, etc.) and/or refer the patient to an oncofertility specialist who would be able to educate the patient accordingly.  I agree that it is important to identify limitations as a healthcare provider and accept when information is outside of scope of practice.  It is OK to say, “I don’t know” and to follow up with, “but I will find the answer to your question(s)” or “I will refer you to somebody who can help you with that.”
