what is ectopic pregnancy

Ectopic pregnancy refers to the implantation or settling down of a developing embryo into any other part of the female reproductive tract other than the endometrial lining of the uterus. The endometrial lining is the normal site of implantation of a newly formed embryo within the uterus or the womb. It is also the same part of your womb from which your menstrual flow originates monthly in the absence of a pregnancy. While in about 90 – 95% of cases, ectopic pregnancies occur in the fallopian tube, hence commonly refered to as tubal pregnancies, other possible sites of ectopic pregnancies are the ovaries, the abdominal cavity and the cervix among others.
