An ectopic pregnancy is the implantation of the fertilized egg outside the uterine cavity. Other medical treatment options such as Prostaglandins, Actinomycin D, Potassium Chloride, Hyperosmolar Glucose, Monoclonal Antibodies or simple aspiration have been used, but none of these have shown more efficacy than the use of Methotrexate.
Are there other medications for ectopic pregnancy besides methotrexate?
