Few data exist regarding IVF in women who have undergone bariatric surgery. Our experience with five patients suggests that IVF is a safe and effective fertility treatment for these women, although special considerations should be made when treating patients who have undergone bariatric surgery. Considering the type of bypass procedure the patient underwent is particularly important should a patient develop concerning symptoms during her IVF cycle.
