What is an ectopic pregnancy?
An ectopic pregnancy is when the embryo attaches outside of the womb, most commonly in the fallopian tubes. If this is misdiagnosed it can potentially be fatal for the mother, and if it is not treated quickly it can cause the fallopian tube to burst – leading to internal bleeding.
The most common symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy are:
- Missed periods
- Stomach pain
- Vaginal bleeding
