Ectopic pregnancy (EP) is one of the major cause of morbidity and mortality in reproductive aged woman. About up to 9% pregnancy-related deaths in the first trimester occures as a result of the undiagnosed EP. The incidence of ectopic pregnancy is around 2%. The incidence has been quintupled in the last 25 years owing to the dispersion of the artificial reproductive technics (ART). Despite increasing incidence, the mortality rate associated with EP has fallen dramatically thanks to improved diagnostic methods. Identification of ectopic pregnancy can be difficult sometimes and the delay in accurate diagnosis might lead to death, which gives the importance of this pathological state. According to the literature in every 30,000 pregnancy one simultaneus ectopic pregnancy occures and the incidence of simultanous ectopic pregnancy after a spontaneous cycle is more rare.
