Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

Stay in close contact with your gynecologist.

An ectopic pregnancy is serious. An ectopic pregnancy occurs when the fertilized egg attaches itself in a place other than inside the uterus. Almost all ectopic pregnancies occur in the fallopian tube and are thus sometimes called tubal pregnancies. The fallopian tubes are not designed to hold a growing embryo; thus, the fertilized egg in a tubal pregnancy cannot develop properly and must be treated.

Symptoms include:

Sharp or stabbing pain that may come and go and vary in intensity. (The pain may be in the pelvis, abdomen, or even the shoulder and neck due to blood from a ruptured ectopic pregnancy gathering up under the diaphragm).

Vaginal bleeding, heavier or lighter than your normal period

Gastrointestinal symptoms

Weakness, dizziness, or fainting

It is important to contact your doctor immediately if you are experiencing sharp pain that lasts more than a few minutes or if you have bleeding.
