Learn more about Ectopic Pregnancy

Content updated on Jan 19, 2024

What is ectopic pregnancy?

A condition where pregnancy occurs in any location other than the uterus. This is abnormal and most commonly occurs in the Fallopian tube, the tubes connecting the ovaries to the uterus. If the pregnancy continues to grow, it may rupture and lead to life-threatening bleeding.

Symptoms of ectopic pregnancy

  • Abdominal guarding

  • Rebound tenderness

  • History of ectopic pregnancy

  • History of infection of the pelvis

  • History of pelvic surgery

  • Bleeding in between menstrual cycles / periods or after menopause

  • Possibility of being pregnant

  • Abdominal pain

Questions your doctor may ask to check for ectopic pregnancy

  • Have you ever had an ectopic pregnancy?

  • Have you ever been diagnosed with pelvic inflammatory disease?

  • Have you ever had pelvic surgery?

  • Have you experienced vaginal bleeding or discharge outside of your periods or after menopause?

  • Is there any chance that you might be pregnant?

Treatment for ectopic pregnancy

Unfortunately, an ectopic pregnancy cannot be saved. Treatment is usually needed to remove it before it grows too large, ruptures and bleeds. Removal can be done through medications or surgery depending on a number of factors. If it ruptures, emergent treatment is usually necessary.
