The incidence of ectopic pregnancy has dramatically increased in the last decade. The triggering factors may be different and among them there is the introduction of medical assisted procreation techniques. Tubal pathologies in 80% of women undergoing artificial insemination techniques, the transfer in the womb of more than one embryo and the method of the same embryo-transfer may influence the onset of an ectopic pregnancy.
