Ectopic pregnancy

Ectopic pregnancy

A pregnancy where the embryo implants somewhere outside the uterus, most often the fallopian tube—which explains why this is sometimes also called a “tubal pregnancy.” If undetected, an ectopic pregnancy can have serious—even life-threatening—effects that may require surgical intervention. If you’ve had an ectopic pregnancy, seek medical help ASAP.
