Adnexal torsion is a true gynecological emergency that has an incidence of 2.7%. Moreover adnexal torsion is commonly seen in reproductive ages and has an incidence of 1/5000 in pregnancy. Here we try to emphasize the risk of adnexal torsion in pregnancy after ovulation induction.

laparoscopic procedures are also being performed in pregnancy for the wellness of patients without any damage (7). Gorkemli et al. (8) evaluated adnexal torsion especially in in-vitro fertilisation (IVF), ICSI patients and stated the importance of ovarian preserving for ovarian reserve
