In vitro fertilization basics part 24

Risks for the woman

  • Pelvic infection after egg collection

Pelvic infection can occur when the egg collection needle carries bacteria from the vagina or the bowel into the abdomen, or transfers bacteria from a damaged Fallopian tube into the abdomen. Infection occurs in about 1 in 500 cycles. The chance of infection can be reduced by giving antibiotics after egg collection if the needle punctures a damaged Fallopian tube, the bowel or an endometriotic cyst.
