Ectopic pregnancy...
Sometimes called a tubal pregnancy, an ectopic pregnancy never results in a live birth. This is a pregnancy that develops outside of your uterus. Usually the pregnancy starts to develop in a fallopian tube. If you have an ectopic pregnancy you will experience severe lower abdomen pain (almost always on one side only). The pain may start anywhere from the 6th to 12th week of pregnancy. You may also experience vaginal bleeding. Some ectopic pregnancy end on their own but since some need medical attention it's very important to see your care provider right away if you have symptoms. Usually an exam and ultrasound will be done to rule out an ectopic pregnancy. If it's found that you do have an ectopic pregnancy the pregnancy will need to end or you could experience serious complications such as fallopian tube rupture. An ectopic pregnancy can make you feel sad or angry and that's normal -- visit this site to get support.
