Ectopic pregnancies and IVF
1 Replies

I have been told through several women that IVF increases the risk of an ectoptic pregnany. I would think that since you place the embryo directly into the uterus that it would help this to not happen. What are your thoughts? Do you have any evidence or websites to address this issue?

You are right. The risk of an ectopic pregnancy is not quite zero, but it is pretty close. The risk does seem to be greater if the embryos are deposited too close to the top of the uterine cavity
