How long can a baby grow in the fallopian tube?
The fetus rarely survives longer than a few weeks because tissues outside the uterus do not provide the necessary blood supply and structural support to promote placental growth and circulation to the developing fetus. If it’s not diagnosed in time, generally between 6 and 16 weeks, the fallopian tube will rupture.
