  • Ectopic Pregnancy

    An ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilized egg implants somewhere other than the main cavity of the uterus. Pregnancy begins with a fertilized egg. Normally, the fertilized egg attaches itself to the lining of the uterus. An ectopic pregnancy most often occurs in one of the tubes that carry eggs from the ovaries to the uterus (fallopian tubes).

    This type of ectopic pregnancy is known as a tubal pregnancy. In some cases, however, an ectopic pregnancy occurs in the abdominal cavity, ovary or neck of the uterus (cervix). An ectopic pregnancy can't proceed normally. The fertilized egg can't survive, and the growing tissue might destroy various maternal structures. Left untreated, life-threatening blood loss is possible.

  • Ectopic Pregnancy

    Symptoms:

    Light vaginal bleeding

    Nausea and vomiting with pain

    Lower abdominal pain

    Sharp abdominal cramps

    Pain on one side of your body

    Dizziness or weakness

    Pain in your shoulder, neck, or rectum

    If the fallopian tube ruptures, the pain and bleeding could be severe enough to cause fainting.

  • Ectopic Pregnancy

    Diagnosis:

    Pelvic exam:

    The exam may show tenderness in the pelvic area. A pregnancy test and vaginal ultrasound will be done. HCG is a hormone normally produced during pregnancy. Checking the blood level of this hormone (quantitative HCG blood test) can diagnose pregnancy.

    Treatment:

    Ectopic pregnancy is life-threatening. The pregnancy cannot continue to birth. The developing cells must be removed to save the mother's life. If the area of the ectopic pregnancy breaks open (ruptures), it can lead to bleeding and shock, an emergency condition.

    Treatment for shock may include:

    Blood transfusion

    Fluids given through a vein

    Keeping warm Oxygen

    Raising the legs

    If the ectopic pregnancy has not ruptured, treatment may include: Surgery Medicine that ends the pregnancy, along with close monitoring by your doctor.
