An ectopic pregnancy is any pregnancy that is implanted at a site outside of the uterine cavity. The most common sites include the ampulla and isthmus of the fallopian tube. Less commonly, the ovaries, cervix, or peritoneal cavity can be involved.

Conservative management involves watchful waiting of the stable patient while allowing the ectopic to resolve naturally. This is suitable in a small number of selected patients only and is not the first-line management. The serum B-hCG should be monitored every 48 hrs to ensure it is falling by equal to or greater 50% of the level until it falls to approximately <5mIU/ml. This method is offered for patients in whom a rupture is unlikely; these are stable patients, with well-controlled pain, with a low baseline-HCG, small unruptured ectopic on USS.
