Ectopic Pregnancy

Ectopic Pregnancy Treatment in Jumeirah, Dubai

Ectopic pregnancy, also known as tubal pregnancy, is a complication of pregnancy in which the embryo attaches outside the uterus. Signs and symptoms classically include abdominal pain and vaginal bleeding.

A fertilized egg implanting outside the uterus into the fallopian tube is known as ectopic pregnancy. An ectopic pregnancy can attach to the cervix or the ovary. Attachment in areas apart from the uterus makes a woman not carry the pregnancy to term. It often bursts due to lack of enough space for the embryo to develop hence can be life threatening.
