Q: What is an ectopic pregnancy?
A: “An ectopic pregnancy is one in which the embryo grows outside of the uterus. As it can be lethal, early diagnosis is essential to minimize complications. You can also have risk factors that can increase your chances, such as a pelvic infection, surgery and previous ectopic pregnancies. If you have these, make sure you review them with your physician before you plan your pregnancy.”
