Abstract

Recurrent ectopic pregnancies can be managed conservatively, medically or surgically and present as a management dilemma for the clinician, in particular if the patient is keen to retain fertility. We report the case of a 25 year old nulliparous woman with a history of 3 previous ectopic pregnancies. The patient was diagnosed with a left ectopic pregnancy, had a successful medical management and presently she is on the waiting list for bilateral salpingectomy prior to her assessment for in vitro fertilization.

Keywords: recurrent ectopic pregnancies, salpingotomy, salpingectomy, management
