Ectopic Pregnancy

An ectopic pregnancy is a pregnancy that occurs outside the uterus, usually within the fallopian tube. It is a life-threatening condition to the mother and the fetus cannot survive this condition. The developing cells must be removed to save the mother’s life. It is an emergency condition which we can diagnose, advise treatment options and provide service referrals.

Ectopic Pregnancy Services

If there is a rupture, surgery is done to stop blood loss. This surgery will confirm an ectopic pregnancy, remove the abnormal pregnancy and repair any tissue damage.

Most forms of ectopic pregnancy that occur outside the fallopian tubes are not preventable. However, a tubal pregnancy (the most common type of ectopic pregnancy) may be prevented in some cases by avoiding conditions that might scar the fallopian tubes.

One-third of women who have had one ectopic pregnancy or an ectopic pregnancy surgery are still able to conceive and have a normal pregnancy in the future.
