Does Clomid (clomiphene) Cause ectopic pregnancy or misscarage?

Does Clomid (clomiphene) Cause ectopic pregnancy or misscarage?

No…: Clomid (clomiphene) is used to help conceive a pregnancy. Without the Clomid (clomiphene) there might not be a pregnancy that could either be ectopic of miscarry. I guess in that sense it would increase the risk by increasing the risk of the pregnancy itself. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Does taking Clomid (clomiphene) for one month only, 50 mg for 5 days increase the risk of having an ectopic pregnancy?

No: Clomiphene alone does not increase the risk of ectopic pregnancy. On the other hand, the risk factors that lead to fertility treatment are associated. Prior chlamydia, tubal disease, and pid are examples. ...Read more

Using Clomid (clomiphene) after tow years from having an ectopic pregnancy with no effect to fallopian tupes..Could it cause ectopic again..

No effect: Clomid (clomiphene) shouldn't have any effect on the rate of ectopic pregnancy, but having had an ectopic before (even if your tubes look normal on hsg) does increase your risk of recurrence significantly. If you conceive, you should be watched closely at first, so the diagnosis isn't missed. ...Read more

Preganancy after ect: You may still become pregnant. The lack of one fallopian tube may make this more challenging and it may take longer than you might otherwise expect. Ultrasound may be helpful to determine when your left ovary is about to produce a potentially fertilizeable follicle. You should see a fertility specialist. If you are already, a second opinion may also be valuable. ...Read more

Did having 3 previous c-sections cause me to get an ectopic pregnancy ?

Did  having 3 previous c-sections cause me to get an ectopic pregnancy ?

Probably not.: Although cesarean sections have many adverse implications for future reproduction, increasing the risk of ectopic pregnancies is not one of them. The adhesions caused by cesarean section typically do not involve the tubes, rather the bladder. When the tubes are affected, infertility can occur, as can ectopics. I am not aware of any good data to prove a link with ectopics, though. ...Read more

Could having previous c-sections cause me now to have a ectopic pregnancy ?

Could having  previous c-sections cause me now to have a ectopic pregnancy ?

Minimal risk factor: Any pelvic surgery can increase the risk of an ectopic if any tubal damage is involved or if there are multiple adhesions (scar tissue). Like anyone else, if you have an early pregnancy and experience any pain with or without bleeding, check with your doc asap. You can also ask your doc how your tubes looked at c-section, (for peace of mind). Prior ectopic is a larger risk factor. ...Read more

Does having previous c-sections increase my chance of having an ectopic pregnancy?

No: Previous caesarean section doesn't predispose to ectopic pregnancy. However, it does increase the likelihood of subsequent c-section deliveries depending on where the initial uteran incision was made. Complications of c-sections include hemorrhage, infection, and thromboembolism, which would all have likely presented shortly after the procedure. ...Read more
