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

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

Would you bleed after taking the abortion pill if they thought you might have a ectopic pregnancy and if you did bleed does that mean it worked?

Would you bleed after taking the abortion pill if they thought you might have a ectopic pregnancy and if you did bleed does that mean it worked?

Any pattern possible: If the abortion pill works you will get bleeding but the bleeding does not necessarily mean it was successful and does not eliminate the possibility of an ectopic. This is why follow up is important to confirm that all is back to normal. ...Read more

Hello.. How would you know if you have a ectopic pregnancy. Im on depo-provera and been on it since 12/2010 and i havent had a period since 2011..

Hello.. How would you know if you have a ectopic pregnancy. Im on depo-provera and been on it since 12/2010 and i havent had a period since 2011..

Doubtful: If you have taken you depo-provera on time during this period then low likelihood of pregnancy. Usually with an ectopic especially if leaks or ruptures there is abdominal pain. Hopefully you have had pelvic exams during this time and a problem could be found at that time. It is possible to also have positive pregnancy test with ectopic. See your doctor and express you concern. ? Get ultrasound. ...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

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
