Vanessa Carlton

Diagnosed with ectopic pregnancy

6 Nov, 2013

Carlton announced that she she was diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy and later underwent emergency surgery to remove her right fallopian tube. As a result of ongoing pain from the surgery she cancelled the first four November dates of her scheduled tour.

I was diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy, or in my case it was a fallopian pregnancy.  This is not considered a viable pregnancy because the fetus cannot develop and it is a high risk situation for the mother because of the potential for tubal rupture and internal bleeding.
