It’s one or theother: It would be very uncommon to “treat with methotrexate” after an “ectopic pregnancy surgery”.. Most early unruptured small ectopic pregnancies can be treated successfully with methotrexate alone. without surgery. When and if ectopic pregnancy surgery is successfully performed, there should be no need for methotrexate. “Trying again”may start once normal ovulatory menstrual cycles have returned.
