  • An ectopic pregnancy is when the egg attaches itself inside the fallopian tube, rather than the uterus. As the baby grows, it puts too much pressure on the tube and if it's not caught in time, the tube can rupture causing massive internal bleeding.

  • It is a pregnancy that implants anywhere outside of the uterus, usually your fallopian tube, but it can be cervical, and abdominal as well. In the almost all cases the baby will die(VERY rarely an abdominal pregnancy can grow)
    If you think you have one, it's something that shouldn't be left alone, it ca be fatal(I had one and almost died)
