Ovarian pregnancy associated with copper-7 intrauterine device.


This report documents the second case of an ovarian pregnancy with a Cu-7 intrauterine contraceptive device. All of Spiegelberg's criteria were satisfied. A summary of the literature is presented, revealing 33 ovarian pregnancies in users of an IUD. The overall frequency of primary ovarian pregnancy is 1:40,000 deliveries. There is a ratio of one ovarian pregnancy to nine ectopic pregnancies among IUD users, compared to 1:150 to 1:200 in the general population.
