Hormonal contraceptive pills containing microgram levonorgestrel are the most commonly used postcoital contraceptive method because of their high efficacy and fewer side effects. Emergency contraceptive pills containing levonorgestrel present their effects by several mechanisms, including delayed tubal transport of the ovum. A delay of tubal transportation of an ovum is also one of the possible etiologic factors of tubal ectopic pregnancies.

There are limited data on the risk of ectopic pregnancy following levonorgestrel treatment as an emergency contraception. Here, a case of tubal pregnancy associated with the use of levonorgestrel containing emergency contraceptive pills has been presented along with discussion of the relevant literature. Keywords: Emergency contraception; extrauterine pregnancy; levonorgestrel.
