Tumas Leidah after Ectopic Pregnancy

Returning to an issue previously discussed here in regards to a Ectopic Pregnancy. Another shailo was raised in regards to "Tumas Leidah" after the vlad is removed by a Ectopic pregnancy. Normally by a c-section if there is dam that comes out from the isha she is tameh tumas leidah (See the end of YD Siman 194.) The nafka minah being if it's a girl she cannot go to the mikveh for sure until after 2 weeks. In this case of an Ectopic pregnancy what's the din then if the vlad is removed and can either be seen that it's a girl or there is a sofek. Is there tumas leidah and the isha must wait until after 2 weeks to go tot he mikveh (of course with counting 7 nekiem as well -- which could be within the 2 weeks after the removal of the vlad. Of course this shailo is also addressed in the Sefer Nishmas Avraham (See here.) L'maseh he quotes R' Shlomo Zalman Aurbach (and others) that there is no "tumas leidah" in such a situation. See there.

A major health problem for women of childbearing age is Ectopic Pregnancy. An ectopic pregnancy (EP) also known as tubal pregnancy occurs in one of fifty pregnancies.

As far as I know most if not all ectopic pregnancies end too early for this to be an issue. I'm not so learned in the subject but I was under the impression that an early pregnancy loss is considered a period and not a leida.
