In brief: MTX used 4 ectopics.

Mtx is methotrexate, a mild chemotherapeutic/immunosuppresant drug that is widely used to manage ectopic pregnancies without surgery.
It can cause liver, kidney, blood toxicity during therapy and should only be taken in close supervision by a competent physician. Did you have a miscarriage or an ectopic? Mtx is not used for miscarriages.
