Non-tubal ectopic pregnancies, Gynaecology

exp date isn't null, but text field is


The purpose of this guideline is to aid the management of women diagnosed with a non-tubal ectopic pregnancy.

Ectopic pregnancies in locations other than the fallopian tubes are becoming more common. In vitro fertilisation, pelvic inflammatory disease and the rise in the caesarean section rate are known risk factors. Whilst non tubal pregnancies only account for 5% of all ectopic pregnancies they disproportionately account for morbidity and mortality associated with ectopic pregnancy.
