Arvind Vaid, IVF expert at Indira IVF Hospital, said the patient, Sharmin Imam had earlier undergone diagnostic laparoscopy followed by laparotomy for severe endometriosis with severe bowel adhesions.
“We suggested her to undergo IVF (in vitro fertilisation) treatment with donor eggs. After transferring three embryos, the woman tested positive for pregnancy. Later, she underwent an ultrasound in Dhaka and was diagnosed with heterotrophic/heterogeneous pregnancy,” said Vaid.

Vaid said: “A timely diagnosis of heterogeneous pregnancy and intervention often results in successful outcome of the intrauterine foetus. Imam’s post-operative obstetric scan revealed a healthy intrauterine sac of seven weeks with cardiac activity of 146 beats per minute. Therefore, she was discharged two days after the surgery.” (IANS)
