Menstruation After Ectopic Pregnancy

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Ultrasound: First you need a urine or blood test to confirm you are pregnant.

Relax.: You are no more likely to have ectopic pregnancy if you have never had salpingitis/pid before. Talk to your obstetrician/gynecologist to check the viability and location of your pregnancy. The pains/aches you describe are probably more related to your anxiety than anything else. ...Read more
First thing…: Assuming that there is a pregnancy, ectopic pregnancies are usually accompanied by pain when they start to rupture. If a gestational sac is seen in the uterus on ultrasound, then ectopic pregnancy is unlikely. If a fetal heartbeat is seen on ultrasound then there is less than a 5% chance of miscarriage. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If you are in : A coma, it is unlikely you will have sex, so ectopic would be unlikely. Appendicitis, however, can happen, not only in comatose patients, but other patients who are sick from other causes. But usually coma or near coma patients are in a hospital, so they can get a ct scan to make immediate diagnosis if appendicitis is suspect. ...Read more

Seek early care with a gynecologist and check serial beta HCG levels and transvaginal sonograms until intrauterine viable pregnancy is determined conclusively.
