In some cases, bleeding in early pregnancy may be indicative of pathological phenomena such as ectopic pregnancy. In this type of pregnancy, the fetus is fixed and begins to develop outside the uterus - for example, on its neck, ovarian, or in the peritoneal cavity, which occurs most often in the fallopian tube. Select with an ectopic pregnancy is usually not very abundant, sukrovichnye accompanied by pain in the abdomen.
