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. ...Read more
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.

Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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.
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 ...Read more

And what if we dont bleed after using misoprostol 200mcg first dose, how many chances are there for ectopic pregnancy? or it is common thing?
Clarification: You will need to contact your doctor and confirm why you were given Misoprostol. If there was concern about an ectopic pregnancy then this medication should not be used and surgery or a medication called Methotrexate may be an option. Please contact the prescribing doctor to clarify your diagnosis and treatment plan ...Read more
Is implamantation bleeding a sign that the pregnancy is inside the uterus and not an ectopic one?
My LMP was 8-18. 9/17 my hcg was 1100. 9/18 it was 1692. 9/22 it was 1900. No baby visible in uterus. Dr thinks ectopic. bleeding.2 early in pregnancy?
I am 29 & this my 2nd pregnancy. The first one was ectopic. The sonographic report says anteverted uterus bulky. Gestational age 4.5 weeks. Worry?
Diagnosing ectopic: That ultrasound report is not very helpful. It's usually impossible to see a gestational sac at 4.5 weeks. Making the diagnosis of ectopic may require serial blood tests to watch the HCG hormone levels rise, and repeat ultrasounds. As a guideline, when your HCG level reaches about 1200, you should be able to see a tiny gestational sac in the uterus. Good luck! ...Read more

Two months late for period history of ectopic and molar pregnancy, home test negative doctor said uterus wasn't enlarged 3 weeks ago. What's going on?
Many things possible: There are many causes of late periods including ovarian cysts, hormone imbalances, thyroid disease, pcos etc. If you miss a period for 3 months or late periods are common then it's best to see a doctor for evaluation. I would suggest you see an obgyn or a reproductive endocrinologist. ...Read more
