OBJECTIVE: To report two interesting and rare cases of ovarian pregnancies, after IVF-embryo transfer, and their successful laparoscopic management. DESIGN: Case report. SETTING: Fertility Research Centre, G G Hospital, Chennai, India. PATIENT(S): Two patients with primary infertility. INTERVENTION(S): Detection of ovarian pregnancy. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Early detection and successful laparoscopic management. RESULT(S): Pregnancy outcome following IVF-ET, early detection of ovarian ectopic pregnancy and successful laparoscopic management. CONCLUSION(S): The women who conceive after IVF-embryo transfer are at a significantly higher risk of ectopic pregnancy. Although ovarian ectopic pregnancy is a rare event, the clinician should always keep the possibility in mind as the condition can be easily missed.
