A 28-year-old woman with mullerian agenesis presented with primary infertility and was considered for laparoscopic oocyte retrieval and in-vitro fertilisation. Her 27-year-old younger sister served as a gestational carrier. The patient underwent ovarian stimulation and 11 mature oocytes were retrieved by laparoscopy. After successful in-vitro fertilisation, two embryos were transferred to the gestational carrier. Two weeks after embryo transfer, the pregnancy was confirmed by serum human chorionic gonadotropin levels. Another two weeks later, an ongoing singleton pregnancy with foetal heartbeat was confirmed by transvaginal ultrasonography.
