An ectopic pregnancy is a pregnancy that occurs outside the uterine cavity and usually in the fallopian tube. When the fertilized egg implants in the fallopian tube or somewhere else in the abdomen, it ends up with what’s called an ectopic pregnancy. It is also known as eccyesis or tubal pregnancy, possessing a complication of pregnancy in which the embryo attaches outside the uterus. Signs and symptoms classically include abdominal pain and vaginal bleeding. In these cases, the pregnancy can’t continue normally, and it requires emergency treatment.
