The Symptoms, Risk, Diagnosis of an Ectopic Pregnancy
When a fertilized egg attaches inside of a woman’s body and it’s not inside the uterus, this is an ectopic pregnancy. This is also called a tubal pregnancy as the fertilized egg typically attaches in the fallopian tube. Because the fallopian tubes are not designed to hold an embryo the egg will usually not develop properly. Your abortion service Clinic can address this medical condition immediately. If left untreated, damage can occur to reproductive organs that can affect future pregnancies and it will put the heath of the woman at risk.
