First step: Before worrying about an ectopic you need to see if you are pregnant or not by checking a home pregnancy test. An ectopic pregnancy will still cause a positive home test. If the test is positive then schedule a visit with an Obgyn to verify that there is a normal pregnancy found. If the test is negative then you are not pregnant ...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.

Hello.: Hello. Signs for an ectopic pregnancy can include pain or cramping in the lower abdomen, mild vaginal bleeding, pain with urination, pain with bowel movements or pain in the area of the ovary. These initial symptoms can present within the 5th to 8th week of pregnancy. With a later ectopic pregnancy, there can be heavy bleeding and pain. About half of women who have bleeding in the first trimester (not implantation) may miscarry. I recommend that you let your obstetrician know about this. Of course, if you experience hemorrhaging or severe abdominal pain, it is imperative to get emergency care. Take care. ...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

Had an ectopic pregnancy, as a results had right tube removed. Left tube had scar tissue that the doctor said he cleared. Can I still get pregnant?

Possible: If 26 years is your correct age, there's a good chance you can get pregnant - but a fair likelihood it may take IVF. Tubes don't "play" - they either are good or not. If you don't get pregnant in 6-8 months you may want to talk with a fertility specialist. Good luck. ...Read more

Not unusual.: It is not unusual to feel pain at an area previously operated on for some time after the surgery - so in that sense your right tubal discomfort is nothing to worry about. Did they remove the right tube or just clean it up from the ectopic? Depending on the form of treatment, you are at increased risk for recurrent ectopic pregnancy in all future reproductive attempts. Take folate (folic acid) and see ob/gyn! ...Read more

Yes, it's possible: Ectopic pregnancy, which is a pregnancy located outside of the normal location in the uterus, is possible after a tubal ligation procedure. However, the risk of any pregnancy, including ectopic pregnancy, is less than 1% (meaning 99 out of every 100 women who get their tubes tied will not get pregnant again, without in-vitro or other special techniques). ...Read more

I am almost 7 weeks pregnant. Is it normal to have a dull ache in or around ovaries when ectopic pregnancy was ruled out?

I am almost 7 weeks pregnant. Is it normal to have a dull ache in or around ovaries when ectopic pregnancy was ruled out?

Pains of pregnancy: There is not always an explanation for pains we experience in pregnancy. If the baby is growing in the right place, and you're not having any bleeding. Then I wouldn't worry. Some aches and pains can be a normal part of the growth process. See your doctor if your pain becomes severe or is accompanied by bleeding. ...Read more

Can I still get leukorrhea with an ectopic pregnancy?

Can I still get leukorrhea with an ectopic pregnancy?

Hormonal effect: I would tend to see this as a completely different problem that the ectopic pregnancy itself, and should be the least of your worries. If you have been identified as having an ectopic, you should be receiving treatment now. Once the ectopic has been addressed, if the leukorrhea does not resolve, then this needs further evaluation as well. ...Read more

A pregnancy test 7-10 days after unprotected intercourse is much more helpful. Implantation bleeding occurs exclusively in pregnant women.

Hello, I had my right fallopian tube removed Dec. 26 due to an ectopic pregnancy. Where does the egg go and can it get fertilized?

Hello, I had my right fallopian tube removed Dec. 26 due to an ectopic pregnancy. Where does the egg go and can it get fertilized?

Can't be fertilized: When there is no fallopian tube, eggs released by the ovary are released into the area surrounding the ovary and are absorbed by the body. Fertilization takes place in the fallopian tube, and without one, fertilization cannot occur. If your other fallopian tube is intact, then you could still get pregnant every other month, when an egg is released by the ovary with the intact tube. ...Read more
