An ectopic pregnancy typically occurs in one of the fallopian tubes. This type of ectopic is known as a tubal pregnancy. In some cases, however, it may occur in the abdominal cavity, ovary or cervix.
Abdominal or pelvic pain and light vaginal bleeding are often the first warning signs of an ectopic pregnancy.
The risk of having an ectopic pregnancy increase, if you have a history of ectopic , or infection of fallopian tubes in the past.
Ruptured Ectopic is an emergency situation, and may lead to excessive bleeding and shock.
Early diagnosis is important; Ultrasonography is the test of choice.
