Abstract

BACKGROUND: Second-trimester tubal pregnancy is an infrequent diagnosis, as these pregnancies often present with symptoms during the first trimester.

CASE: A previously asymptomatic woman presented with pelvic pain and vaginal bleeding at 4 months' gestation and was found to have a live, 14-week, tubal pregnancy.

CONCLUSION: Second-trimester symptoms, including nausea, vomiting, pelvic or abdominal pain, and vaginal bleeding, necessitate ultrasound to determine the pregnancy location, maintaining suspicion for a tubal or abdominal pregnancy.
