It will be removed: Ectopic pregnancy is a pregnancy outside of the uterus and is generally not sustainable to full term. Moreover, it can cause fallopian tube rupture through an artery and be life threatening under those conditions. It will be spontaneously expelled, treated with methotrexate, or surgically removed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Going to pregnancy unit tomo as might have ectopic pregnancy, how will they find out? Is this dangerous? I'm so scared :(
Ultrasound: You will have blood drawn (pregnancy hormone test) and a vaginal ultrasound. If nothing is seen in the uterus and a mass is seen in the tube, an ectopic might be present. Sometimes the pregnancy test is so low nothing can be seen and these tests need repeated in a few days or a week. Ectopics can often be treated with medication now, not always needing surgery. Good luck! ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My sister has a positive pregnancy blood test, but doctors can't see anything in sonography. She had ectopic pregnancy last year.what is this?
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
