  • I hope you're not asking this because you have one.

    From what I understand, you don't want to wait to have it operated on!
    It's life threatening.

  • If you think you have one, get to the ER immediately. They may have to perform surgery to remove the tube.

  • An ectopic pregnancy needs to be caught early. If you suspect you have should google the symptoms. I had an ectopic and it was treated with a methotrexate injection rather than surgery because it was caught in time.
