The recovery of a mature oocyte from a modified natural cycle followed by in-vitro fertilization (nIVF) is an attractive alternative to conventional IVF, involving ovarian stimulation, in the treatment of female infertility. Ovarian agenesis is a rare disorder resulting in primary amenorrhoea and infertility in affected females. A couple sought help for infertility due to ovarian agenesis of the female partner and decided to pursue treatment utilizing oocyte donation. Modified natural-cycle egg retrieval was carried out on the donor; one mature oocyte was retrieved and underwent IVF using a sperm sample from the male partner. A good-quality embryo was transferred, A viable pregnancy was confirmed by ultrasound scan and resulted in the delivery of a healthy baby boy at 36 weeks' gestation. This is the second published report of an ongoing clinical pregnancy and subsequent birth resulting from oocyte donation recovered during a modified natural cycle. The use of less invasive assisted reproduction techniques such as nIVF can be used in oocyte donation cycles successfully.
