How is an ectopic pregnancy treated?

As an ectopic pregnancy will unfortunately not be able to reach full-term, it is important to stop the growth as soon as it is recognized. This reduces the risks of complications including damage or rupture of the fallopian tube and internal bleeding. Treatment can involve either medication or surgery.
