Wondering if I could possibly have had a erotic pregnancy I have been having sharp right side (lower) abdominal pain along with a lot of vagina bleeding, dizziness. The pain is constant but I get shape jabs of pain where if I am standing I fall.

Ectopic: Ectopic pregnancy is when the fertilized egg implants in an area outside of the uterus, where it normally develops into a fetus. Up to an estimated 20 in every 1, 000 pregnancies are ectopic. Nearly all ectopic pregnancies develop in a fallopian tube. These are often called tubal pregnancies. If left untreated, a tubal ectopic pregnancy can cause fallopian tube damage and cause heavy bleeding that could be very serious.

Various risk factors are associated with ectopic pregnancy, including previous ectopic pregnancy, inflammation of the fallopian tube (salpingitis) or an infection of the uterus, fallopian tubes or ovaries (pelvic inflammatory disease) increases the risk of ectopic pregnancy. Often, these infections are caused by gonorrhea or chlamydia.

First signs of an ectopic pregnancy may include vaginal bleeding, abdominal pain or pelvic pain, usually 6 to 8 weeks after a missed period. If you believe your are pregnant and have any risk factors, or if the bleeding persists or pain increases, you should see your gynecologist immediately. ...Read more
