Ectopic pregnancy is a potentially life-threatening condition that occurs when a fertilized egg implants outside of the uterus, usually in the fallopian tube. Symptoms may include pelvic pain, vaginal bleeding, and dizziness or fainting. In some cases, there may be no symptoms at all. If left untreated, an ectopic pregnancy can cause the fallopian tube to rupture, leading to severe bleeding and potentially life-threatening complications. Treatment options depend on the severity of the condition and may include medication, surgery, or a combination of both. In some cases, medication may be used to dissolve the ectopic pregnancy. If the pregnancy has progressed too far or there is a risk of rupture, surgery may be necessary to remove the affected fallopian tube.
