The most common place for an ectopic pregnancy is in a fallopian tube. If the pregnancy continues to grow here, the tiny fallopian tube can burst open. A burst fallopian tube results in serious and possibly life-threatening internal bleeding.
To protect you, the ectopic pregnancy must be ended. Consulting with a specialist (an obstetrician/gynecologist), we have given you a medication called ‘methotrexate’ to end your ectopic pregnancy. This medication usually stops the growth of the pregnancy.
