Heterotophic pregnancy is defined as presence of combined intrauterine and ectopic pregnancy. We are reporting 3 cases of heterotophic pregnancy out of 54 ectopic pregnancy cases during a study period of two years (April 2013–March 2015) in Mamata General Hospital Telangana. All of the three heterotophic pregnancies are due to induction of ovulation and intrauterine insemination. Early diagnosis and management of ruptured ectopic pregnancy was done and intrauterine pregnancy was managed conservatively. Of the three, two pregnancies reached term gestation and had good perinatal outcome. The other case aborted spontaneously at 26 weeks of gestation. Interesting thing in our cases is continuation of intrauterine pregnancies with good perinatal outcome even after catastrophic rupture of ectopic pregnancies.
