AbstractThe objective of the study was to Safe Medical management of ectopic pregnancy in those where surgical management was indicated. Patients with one or more criteria not suitable for medical treatment but refusing surgical management were included. Exclusion criteria were those who were not haemodynamically stable. They were managed with close monitoring as inpatient to assess resolution of ectopic with Methotrexate. All five cases have been managed successfully by medical method. There is a possible role for medical management in patients who might not satisfy the criteria fully, however further research is needed. Ectopic pregnancy is life threatening disorder. With advances in diagnostic approaches such as ultrasound coupled with hormone markers diagnosis of ectopic has become easier in cases having first trimester bleeding per vaginum. Ectopic can be managed expectantly, medically and surgically. Medical management includes Inj. Methotrexate (MTX). In this case series we have studied five cases which are managed successfully with hundred percent successful results by medical management despite not satisfying criteria. It is a retrospective study. So from this study we can conclude that we can manage ectopic pregnancies medically based upon clinical judgment.Key words: Ectopic pregnancy, Methotrexate
