An ectopic pregnancy is when the fertilized egg implants outside the uterus, most commonly in the fallopian tube. The fertilized egg will grow in the fallopian tube, stretching it until it could eventually rupture (break open). This pamphlet explains if ectopic pregnancies are common, why test for an ectopic pregnancy, if there are symptoms to watch for when waiting for blood test results, and how the test results will be delivered.
