What is extra ovular space?

IkaN: What does extraovular space mean in relationship to medical termination of pregnancy?

M: Extraovular means outside the egg. Ovular refers to the fetus with the surrounding membranes.
So extraovular is the cavity outside the fetus. The cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes are all part of the extraovular space.

In simple terms, while talking about MTP, extraovular instillation means that without rupturing the membranes, you put stuff outside it.

Extraovular instillation of drugs like ethacridine lactate, hypertonic saline, prostaglandins, etc. induce contractions and help in expulsion of the fetus.
