Iwas diagnosed to have “Ectopic” pregnancy. Please what are the likely causes?
Ectopic occurs when a fertilised egg attaches itself outside the cavity of the uterus (womb). Majority of Ectopic pregnancies are found in the Fallopian tubes.
In rare cases, the egg attaches itself in one of the ovaries, the cervix (neck of the womb) or another organ within the pelvis. An Ectopic pregnancy is not usually capable of surviving and in most instances an embryo is not developed. An Ectopic pregnancy may spontaneously miscarry.
Common symptoms and findings of Ectopic pregnancy are:
1. Bleeding from the vagina
2. Positive pregnancy test
3. Lower abdominal pain 4. Fainting. At first an Ectopic pregnancy develops like a normal pregnancy and the same symptoms such as nausea and tender breasts will be present. However, some women do not have these symptoms and do not suspect that they might be pregnant.
The vaginal bleeding can vary from being slight or brown vaginal discharge to being like a normal period.
If you are pregnant and have a long-lasting throbbing in one side of your lower abdomen or if you experience sudden pain you should contact your doctor. This is important because an ectopic pregnancy can be life-threatening, if it ruptures and causes internal bleeding.
If an Ectopic pregnancy is strongly suspected then the gynecologist will perform a laparoscopy to confirm the diagnosis. Laparoscopy is performed through small incisions on the abdomen and the Ectopic pregnancy can usually be removed in this manner.
The Fallopian tube in which the Ectopic pregnancy occurred is often, but not always, removed at the same time. However, in some instances, open surgery becomes necessary in which the pregnancy is removed through a larger incision above the pubic hair line. This option is usually chosen if technical problems occur during the laparoscopy or if the internal bleeding in the abdominal cavity is difficult to control.
