The incidence of complications arising from in vitro fertilization and oocyte retrieval is relatively low. Infections, bleeding, and ovarian torsion are the main complications discussed in this review.

Early diagnosis and proper medical or surgical interventions will lead to a successful resolution in the majority of cases.
