Ectopic pregnancy

This happens when the fetus develops outside the uterus, whether it is in the Fallopian tube, the cervical channel or the pelvic or abdominal cavity. An ectopic pregnancy constitutes a risk for life and must be extirpated as soon as possible.

The symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy are small losses of blood by the vagina and abdominal pains like cramps.
