Does Having A Tilted Uterus Make It More Common To Have An Ectopic Pregnancy
Probably not: Ectopic pregnancies occur when the sperm and egg meet and fertilize and then the fertilized ovum does not make it to the uterus. This is usually a tubal issue (scarring, obstruction, etc). The fertilized egg continue to grow and the tube cannot handle the size and growth and ruptures. Tilting of the uterus in my opinion would not be a recognized cause for this condition.See 2 more doctor answers
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
Can you please tell me if it's more common to have an ectopic pregnancy if you have a tilted uterus?
No: Absolutely not, that's a myth - good news! ~.
Depends.: If by tilted you mean flexed, then it is possible; that can be due to endometriosis and/or pid/salpingitis that predispose to ectopic pregnancies. In general, if this a congenital uterine position, there is no association with ectopics.
Can you have an ectopic pregnancy and fail pregnancy tests. All pregnancy signs no baby in uterus, elevated blood pressure 146/90 & heart rate at 109.
Too fragile: Once an ectopic pregnancy has started to grow, the tissue is not accessible to be mobilized and replaced or implanted in the uterus. The tissue is too fragile number one, and the knowledge of how to make such an existing pregnancy actually reimplant itself is lacking at this time. Ectopic pregnancies can occur anywhere but usually are in the tube as described in the picture above.See 1 more doctor answer
Rare: It is possible but extremely rare.Get a more detailed answer ›
Yes…: But these are 2 different questions. If there is a true gestational sac in the uterus, there can still be a chance of miscarriage. This risk drops dramatically to less than 5% when an embryo with a heartbeat is seen. It is also possible to have an ectopic pregnancy with a gestational sac in the uterus but this is rare, about 1 in 30, 000 naturally conceived pregnancies.
Chances of having an ectopic pregnancy if I've had one natural miscarriage at 6 weeks? No live births. Miscarriage was confirmed in uterus via u/s.
Low: If no tubal disease or compromise, one is < 2-5% likely to have ectopic.
I'm having an u/s tomorrow to see if I am having an ectopic pregnancy, but my uterus feels hard when laying on my stomach. Is that possible?
If a Gestational sac is in the uterus is it possible to be an ectopic pregnancy? Or is a tubal pregnancy ruled out.
Unlikely but possibl: Heterotopic pregnancies (one "inside" one "outside") are uncommon but can happen. They are more common with assisted reproduction vs. Natural, but can happen either way. The risk is not statistically higher than 1 in 100 and is usually much lower. Keep an eye on things but it's not likely for ectopic. Good wishes.See 1 more doctor answer

Why would hCG values rise (4221 at 6w4d to 7500 7w4d) if nothing shows on ultrasound in the uterus & there is no evidence of ectopic pregnancy?
Uterine ectopic pregnancy is where it is in the uterus but not the uterine cavity. Why isn't it viable? Just a little more surgery at birth is needed.
Very serious: Uterine ectopic pregnancies are very serious ; potentially dangerous. They can occur in the area where the fallopian tube originates and can rupture thru the uterus causing so much damage that a hysterectomy is necessary. Can try methotrexate. Be very careful.See 2 more doctor answers
Thanks for the answer. The ultrasound from last month showed my Ovaries and Uterus looked fine and out of Cyst. Worry about ectopic pregnancy?
Why worry: Ovarian cysts are very common. They usually do not predispose you to ectopic pregnancy. There is no mention of an associated problem which may predispose to an ectopic pregnancy so I would not worry about. Ectopic pregnancy can occur without any cause so it is good to be followed by your obstetrician to be certain
1.5 centimeters was removed from my left and right fallopian tube close to my uterus due to ectopic pregnancy. Can I still get pregnant naturally.
Parts of tube?: Are you saying parts of both tubes were removed to treat ectopic pregnancy? If this is so then natural pregnancy will be impossible. Did you mean something else?
Unspecified ectopic pregnancy W/O intrauterine preg. Told a gestational sac and yolk sac was seen between the left ovary and uterus. What that mean?
Tubal pregnancy: If the expanation is accurate, it means that a pregnancy could exist in your tube (left). This would be an "ectopic" pregnancy, and needs to be removed, or your tube may rupture and cause a surgical emergency. Consult your health care professional without delay.
Hcg levels at 1350 pregnant how many weeks? No sac in ultrasound just uterus thickening. Ob thinks its a ectopic pregnancy. Is it possible?
Ectopic pregnancy history. I'm 4-5 weeks pregnant but abdominal ultrasound did not see anything in uterus. To repeat scan in 14days. Is this normal?
Ultrasound showed thickened uterine wall. Would your uterine wall thicken if it was an ectopic pregnancy?
