Abstract

Heterotopic pregnancy means presence of concomitant intrauterine and extrauterine pregnancy. Heterotopic pregnancies are very rare. In this case, heterotopic pregnancy occurred as a result of ovulation induction. Methotrexate was given for the extrauterine pregnancy as the intrauterine pregnancy was miscarried on its own accord. So, obstetricians should be more concerned to diagnose ectopic and heterotopic pregnancies, if the patient has complaint of pain in early pregnancy. Early diagnosis is also important to prevent maternal morbidity and mortality.

Keywords: Heterotopic pregnancy, ectopic, ovulation induction
