Abstract

At early stage of pregnancy, hemoperitoneum often occurs in heterotopic ectopic pregnancy or bleeding of hyperstimulated ovary and can be managed easily by laparoscopic surgery while maintaining pregnancy. But in the 3rd trimester pregnancy, surgical management without delivery is very difficult and preterm birth is inevitable because of life-threatening complications not only for mother but fetus. We present a woman with 31 weeks and 3 days' gestation and spontaneous hemoperitoneum that was treated by conservative management without preterm delivery successfully. A review of the literature was undertaken.
