What happens if I start ovarian stimulation and have a natural pregnancy?

By Zaira Salvador B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 02/17/2022

This is not possible, since before starting the ovarian stimulation the woman will undergo a transvaginal ultrasound to check the state of the ovaries. In the case of having become pregnant naturally in the previous cycle, the gynecologist would see it in this ultrasound and the whole IVF process would be interrupted.

In addition, since in many IVF cycles it is necessary to take birth control pills and/or GnRH agonist drugs beforehand, it would not be possible to get pregnant naturally during this period.
