Facing Failed Pregnancy?

Facing Failed Pregnancy?

A woman is pregnant when fertilization of eggs happens and the egg implants itself in the uterus.

What happens if egg implants outside uterus? Is it even possible?

Yes, 1 out of 50 pregnancies are Ectopic or Failed pregnancy cases. So what is Ectopic pregnancy and how to deal with it?

It is usually an accumulation of tissue derived from an egg which grows in the uterus in a grape-like mass that can cause symptoms of pregnancy. A tubal / ectopic pregnancy never survives; and is impossible to convert into a normal pregnancy.

Initially you may experience common symptoms of pregnancy; but following symptoms may help you recognize a potential ectopic pregnancy:

  • Sharp pelvic or abdominal pain
  • Vaginal bleeding
  • Gastrointestinal symptoms
  • Weakness, dizziness, or fainting

So what happens when one has ectopic pregnancy?

  • The pregnancy often dies after some days. Sometimes there is pain and some vaginal bleeding as it happens in case of a miscarriage.
  • The pregnancy may grow, can stretch the tube along with general signs of pregnancy. This is when an ectopic pregnancy is generally diagnosed.
  • If the pregnancy grows further it will burst the fallopian tube. Results in heavy internal bleeding and pain. It should be considered as a medical emergency.

Who is at high risk of ectopic pregnancy?

The list is not exhaustive, but it highlights the women having higher risk as compared to others. You are at high risk:

  • If you smoke regularly.
  • If you have had pelvic or abdominal surgery or several abortions.
  • If you have got pregnant after having an IUD.
  • If you have undergone fertility treatments.
  • If you have Endometriosis or PID.

It is recommended that, if you have an ectopic pregnancy, go for an immediate treatment; it can be aborted with Methotrexate or Laparoscopic surgery. Consult your doctor to avoid ectopic pregnancy case in future.
