Ectopic Pregnancy

An ectopic pregnancy happens when a fertilized egg starts to grow somewhere other than the uterus, usually in a fallopian tube. (It's sometimes called a tubal pregnancy.) It can cause life-threatening bleeding, so it needs to be ended quickly.

Is it an emergency?

If you or someone in your care has chest pains, difficulty breathing, or severe bleeding, it could be a life-threatening emergency. Call 9-1-1 or the local emergency number immediately.
If you are concerned about a possible poisoning or exposure to a toxic substance, call Poison Control now at 1-800-567-8911.
