The mortality rate of this complication is about tenfold of vaginal delivery and five times more than induced abortion. The likelihood of success in the next pregnancy is also reduced, as well as this condition has a negative effect on mental state of the mother. The prevalence varies in different countries.

In this meta-analysis on all existing literatures about the prevalence of ectopic pregnancy in Iran, 13 articles were found that based on inclusion criteria, 7 articles were selected that 5 of them in order to determine the prevalence of ectopic pregnancy in Iran and 2 in order to determine the prevalence of ectopic pregnancy in infertility centers were included in meta-analysis. Cochrane test was used to determine the homogeneity of samples. Prevalence was estimated based on Random effect in Revman software (version 5.3). Results: Prevalence of ectopic pregnancy before 2006 was estimated as 1.9 in 1000 pregnancies and after 2006 as 3.7 in 1,000 pregnancies and in infertility centers as 44 in 1000 pregnancies.
