ANS: C
With an ectopic pregnancy, the fertilized ovum implants in tissue outside of the uterus, usually the fallopian tube. The woman is at risk for hemorrhage, shock, and death. Vaginal bleeding is often minimal because the blood loss is inside of the abdominal cavity and has no way to exit the body. Every effort is made to preserve an affected fallopian tube, and future conception possible with one fallopian tube.
