We report the case of a 28-year-old nulliparous female with unexplained infertility who underwent freeze-all vaginal oocyte retrieval. Twenty-one days later she presented with vaginal bleeding (similar to menstruation) and right lower-quadrant pain. The results of ultrasound scanning and a laboratory work-up were consistent with an ectopic pregnancy. She underwent laparoscopic right salpingectomy for a tubal ectopic pregnancy. We recommend sexual abstinence during assisted reproduction to lower the risk of multiple pregnancy and especially of heterotopic pregnancy.

CONCLUSIONS: Clinicians should remain conscious of the possibility of endometriosis mimicking advanced ovarian cancer and infiltrating the peritoneum and internal organs of the abdominal cavity, including the urinary tract. Imaging techniques, including CT and MRI, are not always effective in establishing the correct diagnosis preoperatively. PMID: 29953801 [PubMed - in process]

We would like to share our wonderful experience with Drs. Anjali and Aniruddha Malpani. We have just begun our journey of parenthood and are thankful to Dr. Malpani for it. We had been married for 3.5 yrs at the time we met Dr. Malpani. We live in Delhi and had already consulted a few IVF specialists and undergone treatment in Bangalore as per their advice, but we didn't get any success with the treatment. We were very disappointed as it is a physically and mentally exhausting process. We were not sure about what to do next and whether to continue with the same doctor.We got to know about Dr. Malpani through some acqu...

The biggest nightmare for any IVF patient is that the lab may mix up their eggs and sperms with another patients. This has happened in many clinics, and IVF is as prone to errors as any other treatment because it is provided by a host of people working together – doctors, nurses, receptionist, ultrasonographers, lab technicians and embryologists. It requires lots of coordination, and there are few treatment processes for which a team approach is more important than for assisted reproduction. Close, continuous communication is required at many levels to e nsure everything goes as planned.Communication mattersAll of th...
