Abstract:Thromboembolic events are serious, but fortunately rare, complications following ovarian stimulation for IVF. Here, we report a case of internal jugular vein thrombosis after ovarian stimulation with gonadotrophins. Most of the cases of thrombosis are late complications of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) or hereditary hypercoagulability. Screening for these risk factors in our patient was negative. The patient was succesfully treated with low molecular weight heparin and a twin pregnancy is ongoing.
