Although tubal pregnancy is increasing, ovarian ectopic pregnancy has remained a rare event. However, North American reports suggest an increasing incidence relative to both tubal and term pregnancies. We report an unexpected increase in our practice with five primary ovarian pregnancies over the past year. Current understanding of the aetiological factors, pathogenesis and implications for management are outlined.
