How many weeks gestation is the typical ectopic when it is diagnosed?

How many weeks gestation is the typical ectopic when it is diagnosed?

Depends: But usually around 6 weeks or so. As the fetus grows in the fallopian tube, it will get too big for the tube to stretch and cause pain. Occasionally bleeding can occur. The pain is usually what leads to the diagnosis. ...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

Diagnose w/ectopic pregnancy at 6 weeks.levels @ 6,000 hcg. Why cant an ultrasound show an abnormality/sac in Fallopian tube at this stage?

Diagnose w/ectopic pregnancy at 6 weeks.levels @ 6,000 hcg. Why cant an ultrasound show an abnormality/sac in Fallopian tube at this stage?

-It'sWhat'sNotThere-: Because an ectopic can occur in lots of places other than just the fallopian tube. And the number of weeks and HCG levels, while helpful in general,don't always ad-up as hoped or expected. And because ultrasound may not be real sensitive at six weeks, and requires skill. I'm impressed that an ectopic is still in consideration. Most important is what's not seen at this point: anything in the uterus ...Read more

Can ectopic pregnancy occur the same time with an gestational empty sac at 9weeks?

Can ectopic pregnancy occur the same time with an gestational empty sac at 9weeks?

Yes but rare: It is possible to have an ectopic pregnancy at the same time as a pregnancy in the uterus, whether the pregnancy in the uterus is healthy or not. This is called a heterotopic pregnancy, and is rare (about 1 in 4000 pregnancies) but is more common with fertility treatment where you release more than one egg. Symptoms may be pain or abnormal bleeding - talk to your doctor asap if experiencing pain. ...Read more

Re transfer 2 embryo during IVF and I am 6 week prgnt but in u/s re see one gestational sacs and no ectopic.Do body reabsorb embryo or anything risky?

This is ok: This is actually a pretty common thing that happens. This is why often re will transfer 2 embryos. Yes the body does resorb one and there is zero risk to the remaining healthy pregnancy. I hope it all goes well forward with one nice embryo and baby. Good luck! ...Read more

If a Gestational sac is in the uterus is it possible to be an ectopic pregnancy? Or is a tubal pregnancy ruled out.

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

Hcg 20000 mar 5, hCG 27500 mar 11, vaginal us found only small gestation sac at eight week in uterus. Doc suspicious for ectopic?

Assuming the HCG..: ..Levels are accurate, your do not have a viable pregnancy.. The sono confirms this. I would do an endometrial biopsy to see if your pregnancy is intrauterine, and consider Methotrexate therapy as treatment for an ectopic if present. I would expect some pain and bleeding if you have an ectopic. ...Read more

Im 6 wk 2days pregnant IVF. My gestational sac is empty and my doctor wants to do a laparoscopy to see if it an ectopic pregnancy. Is it to soon?

Im 6 wk 2days pregnant IVF. My gestational sac is empty and my doctor wants to do a laparoscopy to see if it an ectopic pregnancy. Is it to soon?

Yes!: An empty gestational sac means that you have an intrauterine pregnancy, but it may be too early to tell if it is viable. The problem with IVF is the possibility of twins one which could be tubal. However, it is vital that he check with HCG levels and ultrasounds before subjecting you to a surgery that could definitely end the pregnancy. If you are not having any pain or bleeding. ...Read more
