Ectopic Pregnancy and Age

My topic is the risks of ectopic pregnancy and whether it’s more common to occur in women over the age of 40. I chose this topic because there was a lot of available literature and studies to support what I have researched. I also have a high interest in pregnancy and the risks that it involves. I have researched many factors of this topic including risks, causes, age and probability of age and effects.
