I have unprotected sex the last two weeks what can happen other than get pregnant from unprotected sex.


A:   Hello,
The methotrexate regime is effective for ectopic less than 5 weeks of pregnancy . Its effectiveness has to be monitored every 48 hrs with the serum beta hcg levels which should show a decrease constantly and when the values turn less than 1 , the pregnancy is said to be resolved. So a continuous monitoring is required at the level of the physician.
I hope i have answered the query .
