The effects of COVID-19 infection on ART pregnancies

We don’t know what the impact of COVID-19 is on pregnancy after fertility treatment. Yet the answers are of vital importance both to guide fertility services during this COVID-19 pandemic and to inform patients starting treatment about the benefits and risks of infection and vaccination. From May 2020 ESHRE began collecting data on the outcome of ART pregnancies managed during a SARS-CoV-2 infection. A first report has been published on the ESHRE website.
Only if we have more cases reported can we begin to answer the many outstanding questions about SARS-CoV-2 infection in ART pregnancies and help inform our patients. Which is why we are now calling on your help.

ESHRE has published a new statement on COVID-19 vaccination and assisted reproduction answering three important questions:

ESHRE good practice recommendations on the nomenclature of ectopic pregnancy

A working group of selected ESHRE members of the ESHRE Special Interest Group Implantation and Early Pregnancy and invited experts prepared recommendations on the nomenclature of ectopic pregnancy, based on a survey among members of the SIG Implantation and Early Pregnancy.
