Hello,

There are various indications of medical termination of pregnancy with hormone preparations as well as dilation and curettage. As the clinician has decided the medical line of treatment in your case from thorough clinical grounds and knowledge, the continuation with the same is must for a certain period of time with follow up beta HCG. Do wait for the further doses of Methotrexate to work and give you best results.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Bhagyesh V. Patel, General Surgeon
