@alyse Hello, An ectopic pregnancy is when a fertilized egg develops outside the womb. This usually happens in one of the fallopian tubes which lead from your ovaries to your womb. If an egg implants there, it can't develop into a baby. The leg pain may be pain transferred from your ectopic pregnancy. There are many times when pain is transferred to different body parts. Here are a few symptoms to look for pain low down and on one side of your abdomen, bleeding from your vagina, discomfort when going to the toilet, and a brown watery discharge from your vagina. Ectopic pregnancy puts your health at risk too and can be very serious if it isn't treated. It is best to go to your doctor to check it out. Thank You!
