Cervical Ectopic Pregnancy

Cervical ectopic pregnancy refers to an abnormal implantation of a fertilized ovum within the myometrium below the level of the internal os with a reported incidence of less than 1% of all ectopic pregnancies.

Intramural Ectopic Pregnancy

Intramural ectopic pregnancy refers to an abnormal implantation of a pregnancy within the myometrium. A gestational sac extending beyond the endometrial-myometrial junction is the defining feature. Intramural ectopic pregnancies should be subdivided into partial and complete. Ultrasound is the first-hand diagnostic tool.

Cervico-isthmic Pregnancy

A cervico-isthmic pregnancy is a rare condition defined by implantation of the gestational sac between the anatomical and histological internal os. Unlike true cervical pregnancies, it has the ability to develop beyond the second trimester.



Salpingitis is defined as an infection and inflammation in the oviducts which act as the site for the transport of ova, sperm, and the site of fertilization and early embryonic development.

Ovarian Ectopic Pregnancy.png

Ovarian ectopic pregnancy

Ovarian ectopic pregnancy (OEP) is a rare type of ectopic pregnancy in which the fertilized ovum implants into the ovary.


Tubal Ectopic Pregnancy

An ectopic pregnancy is defined as the presence of a pregnancy outside the uterine cavity, the commonest location being the fallopian tube. They account for 1-2% of pregnancies in the UK and may be as high as 4% with assisted conception.

Interstitial Ectopic Pregnancy

Interstitial ectopic pregnancy is defined as the ectopic gestation implanting in the most proximal part of the fallopian tube.

Abdominal pregnancy

Abdominal pregnancy

An abdominal ectopic pregnancy ( AP) is a pregnancy that occurs in the abdominal cavity outside of the female reproductive organs.

Cesarean scar pregnancy

Cesarean scar pregnancy (CSP) is an abnormal implantation of the gestational sac in the area of the prior caesarean delivery (CD) scar, potentially leading to life-threatening complications, including severe haemorrhage, uterine rupture and development of placenta accreta spectrum (PAS) disorders.

Isolated Fallopian Tube Torsion.jpg

Isolated fallopian tube torsion

Isolated fallopian tube torsion is defined as rotation of the fallopian tube around its longitudinal axis with preserved normal ovary. Isolated fallopian tube torsion is a rare cause of acute pelvic pain in female patients, with estimated incidence of about one in 1.5 million females.


Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome

Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is usually an iatrogenic complication of assisted reproduction technology but can occur spontaneously in rare cases due to the high production of endogenous gonadotropins, beta-hCG level, gonadotropin-like molecules, or due to enhanced sensitivity to endogenous gonadotropins such as mutations follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) receptor.


Rudimentary Horn Pregnancy

Unicornuate uterus with a rudimentary horn is a rare Müllerian anomaly that has a high incidence of obstetric complications such as ectopic pregnancy in the rudimentary horn.
