What are the symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy?

Many ectopic pregnancies show no signs or symptoms until the fallopian tube ruptures. Other than the general signs of being pregnant, some early signs and symptoms of ectopic pregnancy can include lower abdominal pain, cramping and vaginal bleeding. Signs and symptoms that occur after a fallopian tube has ruptured include severe pain, vaginal bleeding, light-headedness or dizziness, reduction in blood pressure, fainting and shock. It is important to seek treatment as soon as possible, as there can be large amounts of internal bleeding after a fallopian tube rupture.
