Your doctor will assess all possibilities before making a decision and acting in the best interests of you and baby. When intervention is inevitable, there are two treatment options available. Your health care provider will choose the one that best suits your case:
1. Medical: will include an injection of methotrexate, to stop the growth of the embryo and dissolve the existing cells.
- Laparoscopic surgery: to remove the ectopic embryo and repair any damage to surrounding structures. A thin tube with a camera and light will be inserted into the abdomen through a small cut to visualize the internal area
Any of these management plans will be followed by regular blood tests over the next few weeks to keep a check on certain hormone levels. Also it is possible that if a fallopian tube is damaged beyond repair, it may need to be removed completely.
