Abstract

Couples presenting with infertility face peculiar sociocultural problems, these are especially evident in African countries where a very high premium is placed on children and childbearing.
We report a case of a 30-year-old nullipara with a 3-year history of secondary infertility who on investigation was found to have fetal bones from an earlier incomplete abortion. She achieved pregnancy within three months of endoscopic removal of the fetal bones.
