This paper deals with assisted human reproduction techniques and their importance, since nowadays they are permanently applied due to the evolution of science and technology.  Under these circumstances, the law must try to ensure the legal security of those involved in these methods, there must be a regulatory framework that addresses everything related to these techniques and the procedures that derive from them, as is the case of post mortem fertilization. On this issue, there is no pronouncement in the Ecuadorian legislation, and this is a worrying situation since the legislations are obliged to be updated with the purpose of guaranteeing rights and avoiding legal gaps that in the future may deepen problems due to the lack of positive norms, especially in topics that are current and evolve day by day. This study was carried out under a qualitative type of research with an exploratory approach, using inductive-deductive and comparative methods, allowing the collection of relevant information on the subject.
