Osseous metaplasia of the endometrium is a rare disorder associated with the presence of bone in the uterine endometrium. Most patients with this condition presenting with infertility do so owing to the presence of a foreign body in the endometrium. We report a case of a 38-year-old woman who presented with secondary infertility due to osseous metaplasia in the endometrial cavity. She conceived spontaneously after hysteroscopic removal of the bony fragments from the uterus. Uterine osseous metaplasia is a rare cause of infertility that can be easily managed by hysteroscopic removal of the bony fragments, which results in return of fertility.
