Could be ectopic...: Odds are about 1/250 of conceiving after tubal, but when fertilization occurs it is much higher chance of being ectopic (stuck in the fallopian tube), which can be very dangerous -and can seem like a miscarriage at first , you need to have hormone levels followed and sonograms done to check for ectopic pregnancy, this is a potentially very dangerous condition. ...Read more

What are the statistical odds of impregnation on ovulation day and does that stat factor in the likely following chemical pregnancy/early miscarriage?
