There is insufficient data on the impact of severe acute respiratory coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) on the reproductive tissues, its possible risk of cross-contamination, transmission and adverse effect on in vitro fertilization (IVF) outcome. Until today, there is no report associated with viral RNA in both follicular fluid and embryo culture medium from SARS-COV-2 positive women. In this case report, a 24-year-old woman with SARS-CoV-2 was presented. We investigated the SARS-COV-2 positivity in the follicular fluid and embryo culture medium of mildly symptomatic woman on oocyte pick up (OPU) day. We could not detect viral RNA in neither the follicular fluid nor the embryo culture medium. In addition, although the response of ovarian stimulation was normal, the number and maturity of the retrieved oocytes were low.
