The fertility outcome is presented in 118 patients after conservative surgery for unruptured tubal pregnancies. This patient group experienced 142 pregnancies, 127 of which were intrauterine (89.4%). The intrauterine pregnancies (IUPs) occurred in 83 patients (70.3%) and 63.5% (75/118) had live births. The recurrence rate of tubal pregnancy was 12.7%. Of the 65 patients with a normal contralateral tube 53 (81.5%) followed surgery with an IUP, 76.1% a live birth, and 7.7% a recurrent tubal pregnancy. Fifty-seven percent of the patients with a single tube followed with an IUP, and 47.6% had a live birth. The recurrence of tubal pregnancy in this group was 28.5%. Of the patients who underwent expression of tubal gestation, 60.6% followed with an IUP, and 57.5% with a live birth with no recurrence of tubal pregnancy.
