Was your ectopic pregnancy diagnosed quickly and accurately? How? According to Health Day News, ultrasound is the best way to evaluate whether or not a woman may have a dangerous ectopic pregnancy. "Ectopic pregnancy, in which the fertilized egg grows in the fallopian tubes or other spots outside the uterus, typically leads to miscarriage and can even prove fatal.
