OBJECTIVE: To examine a case of clinical pregnancy following oocyte and day 3 embryo vitrification. DESIGN: Case report. SETTING: Huntington Centro de Medicina Reprodutiva, a private infertility clinic, in São Paolo, Brazil. PATIENT(S): A 31-year-old woman, gravida 1, para 1, with polycystic ovary syndrome. INTERVENTION(S): In vitro fertilization with oocyte and embryo vitrification. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Clinical pregnancy defined as fetal cardiac activity on ultrasound examination. RESULT(S): Transvaginal ultrasound examination, at 7 6/7 weeks, revealed a single live intrauterine pregnancy with positive cardiac activity. CONCLUSION(S): Although further research is needed, this case suggests that repeat vitrification and warming of oocytes and embryos not only are possible but can result in pregnancy.
