How many ectopic pregnancies are there?

1 in 100 pregnancies are ectopic

Not too many people know that an ectopic pregnancy is a pregnancy that develops outside the womb.  Keep in mind that most ectopic pregnancies (95%) implant in one of the fallopian tubes.  One in every 100 pregnancies is an ectopic pregnancy.  Specialists say that an ectopic pregnancy is most commonly found between the fourth and tenth week of pregnancy.  In case an ectopic pregnancy is discovered, the surgeon can use laparoscopy to cut open the tube and remove the pregnancy.
