Transvaginal, ultrasound-guided oocyte retrieval has become the gold standard for IVF therapy. Despite a low reported complication rate, here a case is reported of acute ureteral obstruction following seemingly uncomplicated oocyte retrieval. Prompt diagnosis and ureteral stenting led to rapid patient recovery with no long-term urinary tract sequelae. Ureteral injury needs to be included in the differential diagnosis of a patient presenting with pelvic/abdominal pain following oocyte retrieval.
