Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To present a rare infectious complication related to transcervical ET, without prior transvaginal puncture.

DESIGN:

Case report.

SETTING:

Hadassah University Hospital, IVF-ET unit.

PATIENT:

One patient undergoing cryopreserved-thawed ET.

INTERVENTIONS:

Artificial preparation of the endometrium with E2 and P, followed by transcervical intrauterine cryopreserved-thawed embryo transfer.

RESULTS:

After ET, severe pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) with ruptured tubo-ovarian abscess was diagnosed and treated.

CONCLUSIONS:

Severe PID including tubo-ovarian abscess formation should be considered a potential complication after ET, even without transvaginal oocyte aspiration.
