Ectopic pregnancies otherwise known as EP is extremely rare. An ectopic pregnancy is where the fertilized egg is attached outside of the uterine wall. While ectopic pregnancies are most commonly found attached to the fallopian tubes, they can also occur in the cervix, ovaries, and the abdominal cavity. Depending on where the fertilized egg gets attached, will determine what types of symptoms occur. The most common symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy are abdominal pain, cramping on one side of the pelvis, and excessive vaginal bleeding. An ectopic pregnancy doesn’t have a survival rate. Every ectopic pregnancy, whether it attaches itself to the fallopian tubes, ovaries, or cervix, there has to be some medical intervention. There are two ways for medical intervention: medication or surgical. The most common medication that is given, is methotrexate. Methotrexate stops any cells from the embryo to continue growing. Surgery is generally performed laparoscopically, with a small incision made into the abdominal cavity. If there is a rupture, there is a higher possible chance that it may have to be removed. There aren’t really any explanations for why ectopic pregnancies occur. In a study done in 2013, ectopic pregnancies have increased from 0.5% in 1980 to 2%.
