In brief: Pain and infection
If the fallopian tube rupture or breaks open, usually it is the result of a previous infection inside the tube.
As it opens up, it can be very painful. It can also release infection into the entire belly that can be very dangerous and may require hospitalization, antibiotics, and even surgery.

In brief: Internal bleeding
Internal bleeding and pain are the common consequences of rupture of an ectopic pregnancy in the fallopian tube.
This is an emergency situation that requires emergnecy surgery.
