In brief: Yes

An ectopic pregnancy is a pregnancy located outside the uterine cavity.
If it's located in the cervix or in a portion of the fallopian tube close to the uterus, this can lead to excessive bleeding that can only be resolved with a hysterectomy. Although this is a rare event, it is still possible.

In brief: Possible but rare

I have never heard of this but it could be potentially necessary in a late intramural pregnancy.
