Abstract
The incidence of ectopic pregnancy is increased since IVF-ET has started. The risk factors for ectopic pregnancy after assisted reproductive techniques are tubal abnormality, previous myomectomy, the number of transfered embryo, the technical aspects of embryo transfer, the amount of transfered medium and uterine reverse contraction after embryo transfer. Because of the possibility of combined pregnancy after IVF-ET, bilateral adnexal area should be examined by transvaginal ultrasonography at searching intrauterine gestational sac and also serial beta-hCG levels should be checked. We report a case of simultaneous left tubal and right ovarian pregnancies after IVF-ET with a brief review of literature.
Key Words: IVF-ET, Ectopic pregnancy, Ovarian pregnancy, Combined pregnancy
