Abstract

Marcus and Brinsden have reported the first ovarian pregnancy achieved by IVT-ET in 1993. They reported seven cases of primary ovarian pregnancy from 116 ectopic pregnancies after IVF. With advancement of ART, the incidence of ectopic pregnancy is increasing, but ovarian pregnancy is still a rare complication. We report a case of ipsilateral primary ovarian pregnancy after IVF-ET with a patient with previous unilateral salpingectomy with a brief review of literature.
