Our expert says:
It appears that your friend has a condition called a Heterotopic pregnancy state, where one pregnancy occurs in the uterus and the other one in the fallopian tube. This is a very unusual incident however it does occur occasionally. What will be required to be done is that an operation would be performed to remove the pregnancy from the fallopian, as the continuation of this pregnancy is dangerous for the person’s health. If done very quickly without minimal complication and a very short anaesthetic then usually this may not harm the viable foetus. However any anaesthetic in the first trimester does carry a risk.
