What is ectopic pregnancy?
Ectopic pregnancy is when the fertilized egg stays in the fallopian tube and the egg attaches to one of the ovaries. This happens within the first few weeks of pregnancy, doctors usually find out in the 8th week. This pregnancy can be very sad. Instead of celebrating your pregnancy, you find out that your life is in danger.
These organizations can help you understand more about ectopic pregnancy and they can support you through the whole process.
