TA-USG-images of unruptured Ectopic Pregnancy

Ectopic means out of place.
An ectopic pregnancy  is a condition in which a fertilized egg settles and grows in any location other

than the inner lining of the uterus.

most of  ectopic pregnancies are so-called tubal pregnancies and occur in the Fallopian tube (98%);

however, they can occur in other locations, such as the ovary, cervix, and abdominal cavity.

 An ectopic pregnancy occurs in about one in 50 pregnancies.
