Ectopic pregnancy is a life threatening condition and is a major event in a woman's reproductive life. We report herein an unusual case of repeated ectopic pregnancy even after the excision of both fallopian tubes with a deleterious consequences and a near miss. This case teaches us a lesson not to forget ectopic pregnancy. The lady in this report underwent in vitro fertilization treatment cycle due to absence of both fallopian tubes as consequence of previous ectopic pregnancy and a hydrosalpinx; she conceived successfully but unfortunately the pregnancy was another ectopic pregnancy.
