  1. extrauterine gestation

    Extrauterine gestation, also known as ectopic pregnancy, is a medical condition in which fertilization or implantation of a fertilized egg occurs outside the uterus, typically in the fallopian tube, ovary, cervix, or abdominal cavity. This condition is considered dangerous for the pregnant woman as it can cause internal bleeding, infection, and in severe cases, death. The fetus cannot survive in this setting.
