Some of you might question that what is ‘ectopic pregnancy’?

An ectopic pregnancy is an abnormal pregnancy that occurs outside the womb (uterus). The baby (fetus) cannot survive, and often does not develop at all in this type of pregnancy.

Since I’m currently doing my housemanship in obstetrics and gynecology department, I’ve seen 2 of these operations done…

Risk factors include: pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility, use of an intrauterine device (IUD), previous exposure to DES, tubal surgery, intrauterine surgery (e.g. D&C), smoking, previous ectopic pregnancy, and tubal ligation.

Sites and frequencies of ectopic pregnancy. Ampullary, 80%; Isthmic, 12%; Fimbrial, 5%; Cornual/Interstitial, 2%; Abdominal, 1.4%; Ovarian, 0.2%; Cervical, 0.2%.

Symptoms

Abnormal vaginal bleeding, Amenorrhea, Breast tenderness, Low back pain,Mild cramping on one side of the pelvis, Nausea,Pain in the lower abdomen or pelvic area

If the area of the abnormal pregnancy ruptures and bleeds, symptoms may get worse. They may include:

In the operation room

Feeling faint or actually fainting

Intense pressure in the rectum

Pain that is felt in the shoulder area

Severe, sharp, and sudden pain in the lower abdomen

Internal bleeding due to a rupture may lead to low blood pressure and fainting in around 1 out of 10 women.

You will need emergency medical help if the area of the ectopic pregnancy breaks open (ruptures). Rupture can lead to shock, an emergency condition.

Once you noticed the signs and symptoms like what depicted above. Immediate send your beloved to the nearest medical establishment as soon as possible will be the best solution to reduce the mortality rates.
