When the pregnancy occurs outside the uterine cavity, it is called an ectopic pregnancy. If a pregnant woman experiences amenorrhea, abdominal pain, and vaginal bleeding in the first trimester, we should suspect an ectopic pregnancy and should be confirmed by hormonal test bhcg above discriminatory zone (1500 iu/ml) and empty uterus on transvaginal ultrasound. We can manage such ectopic pregnancy by injection of methotrexate or women might need surgical intervention like laparoscopy or laparotomy which depends on the hemodynamic stability of the woman.

In this case, the report we will mention about a 27-year-old African female who presented to the emergency department of DH with gestational amenorrhea of 11 weeks and 2 days with sudden abdominal pain and vaginal bleeding of one-day duration with fainting episodes and shoulder tip pain also. This patient did not do any medical checkups before due to financial issues. She was vitally unstable. Her BHCG was 52,855mIU/ml and a transvaginal scan in emergency showed an alive fetus of 12 weeks size in the left tube and empty uterus, with the impression of unruptured ectopic. She was tachycardic, hypovolemic with severe anemia and hemoglobin of 6.2 g/dl. So the decision was taken to do laparotomy and salpingectomy urgently.
