Successful pregnancy following trans-myometrial embryo transfer using oocyte aspiration needle
The climax of the process of in-vitro fertilization (IVF) is the stage of embryo transfer. Difficulty in embryo transfer is recognised as one of the factors militating against successful outcome. The client was a 38 year old business woman who required in-vitro fertilization on account of tubal factor and male factor infertility (poor motility). Routine mock embryo transfer indicated severe cervical stenosis which was confirmed at hysteroscopy. She subsequently had trans-myometrial embryo transfer. Blood pregnancy test at 2 weeks was positive and interval transvaginal ultrasound confirmed 2 viable intrauterine foetal poles.
