Were you looking for information about Ectopic Pregnancy? Etopic pregnacy is a common misspelling of ectopic pregnancy.
 
An ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilized egg implants itself somewhere outside the uterus. Usually, the egg implants itself in one of the fallopian tubes. However, it can also occur on an ovary, inside the abdomen, or in the cervix. Medical or surgical treatment is necessary to prevent the serious complications an ectopic pregnancy can cause.
 
(Click Ectopic Pregnancy for details about risk factors for such a pregnancy, symptoms associated with this condition, and details about the medicine that is used to treat most ectopic pregnancies.)
