Abstract

Primary ovarian pregnancy is a rare type of ectopic pregnancy, particularly following in vitro fertilization. Although there have been a few reported cases of primary ovarian pregnancy following in vitro fertilization embryo transfer, we believe this is the first report involving donor embryo transfer. A high index of clinical suspicion, abnormal human chorionic gonadotropin levels, and early ultrasound evaluation may aid timely diagnosis and appropriate management. This report provides a reminder to practitioners to advise patients undergoing embryo transfer of the primary ovarian pregnancy risk. Information is provided herein regarding the diagnosis and management of primary ovarian pregnancy in women treated with in vitro fertilization. We review the criteria for early diagnosis and treatment options.
