Three protocols are used to treat ectopic pregnancies: medical treatment by methotrexate, conservative surgery or radical surgery. There are no data about subsequent fertility except in a cohort study. The investigators propose to evaluate the true subsequent fertility with a follow-up of 2 years, in a randomized controlled trial.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Subsequent fertility with 2 years follow-up

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Complications of treatments
  • Time of hospitalisation
  • Decrease curve of beta-hCG after treatment
  • Success rate in each group

Estimated Enrollment: 600
Study Start Date: August 2004
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2008
Detailed Description:
The first group includes non active ectopic pregnancies defined by score or algorithm. In this case, we propose a randomized controlled trial between medical and conservative surgery. In all others clinical situations, we proposed surgery treatment. In a randomized controlled trial we compare conservative versus radical treatment. The patients are followed-up during 2 years with phone contact every 6 months.
