Presented is the case report of a patient noted to have gross distortion of the internal cervical canal during her attempt at embryo transfer following an in vitro fertilization with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (IVF-ICSI) procedure. Multiple attempts at cervical dilation were unsuccessful and the patient was ultimately treated by transmyometrial embryo transfer also known as the Towako method. She successfully achieved a singleton pregnancy and delivered at 41 weeks by primary cesarean section because of arrest of cervical dilation. Transmyometrial embryo transfer represents a viable option for patients with cervical stenosis refractory to conventional methods of navigation or severe anatomical distortion of the internal cervical canal.
