We present three cases of ovarian ectopic pregnancy (OEP). Pre-operative diagnosis of ovarian pregnancy is difficult, and correct diagnosis is often made during surgery. In this series, OEP was suspected pre-operatively in 2 out of 3 patients. Laparoscopy was performed in all 3 cases and the OEP pregnancies were removed by selective peeling, sparing the ovaries. However, localizing the OEP can sometimes be difficult especially after oocyte pick-up in IVF. Performing intra-operative ultrasound can be useful to confirm complete resection of the OEP.
