I had a female get egg bound this year as well. She was able to pass the eggs after being administered calcium and oxytocin, but my vet and I did talk about options if that didn't work. He seemed to be much more in favor of aspirating the eggs, but the thing he cautioned me about is that if yolk leaks out of the eggs once they are aspirated, the snake can develop an infection. If you do elect to aspirate the eggs, you might not want to manipulate them too much afterward since it could cause yolk to leak out of the punctured eggs.

Good luck.
