If you have not done so yet, you have to see a doctor urgently.

You need to call you Dr and get surgery right away or it will burst and you could bleed to death. This is urgent.

Hello and welcome to EHF !


I went through your query and i understand your concern.An ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilized egg implants itself outside of the uterus. They're also called “tubal pregnancies” because most of them happen in the fallopian tubes. Whether there's a problem with the egg or the tube, the egg gets stuck on its journey to the uterus. This procedure involves a surgeon using a laparoscope to remove the ectopic pregnancy and repair or remove the affected fallopian tube. If the ectopic pregnancy cannot be removed by a laparoscopically, another surgical procedure called a laparotomy may be done. This is very dangerous if ruptured so better get proper workup.



Take care
