treatment of ectopic pregnancy?

Options: The most important thing with an ectopic pregnancy is to get treated now. This is a true emergency. In early cases we can treat it with a medication called methotrexate. This is the best and safest option. If the ectopic is too big or beginning to rupture it must be treated with surgical intervention. If you have an ectopic pregnancy you should be seen in the er now.

Emergency surgery : Go quickly to emergency room because if it ruptures you can die.
