Abstract

Our case report describes three conceptions after transperitoneal migration of the ovum in a woman with only one ovary, the contralateral oviduct, and extensive postoperative pelvic adhesions obliterating the Douglas cul-de-sac. This suggests that anatomic integrity of the pelvis is not always essential for ovum pick-up.
