Ectopic Pregnancy Causes- Introduction

From the time of fertilization till pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through a number of steps. During one of these steps, the fertilized egg reaches the uterus and attaches itself there.

An ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilized egg implants and grows outside the main cavity of uterus, like Fallopian tube, Cervix, Abdominal cavity etc. An ectopic pregnancy can’t lead to or develop into a live birth. Apart from the uterus, the embryo cannot survive anywhere else. If not treated, this can have threatening consequences. With immediate treatment, you will be able to reduce the complications and various other risks and enhance your chances of healthy pregnancies in the future, and also decrease several health complications.
