What are my chances of having a normal pregnancy after an ectopic pregnancy?

What are my chances of having a normal pregnancy after an ectopic pregnancy?

85%: The recurrence risk for an ectopic pregnancy is about 15% - so the likelihood of a normal pregnancy is about 85%. Good luck and see your doctor within the first 8 weeks after you have a positive pregnancy test so that an ectopic pregnancy can be excluded or diagnosed and treated early. ...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

Got ectopic pregnancy last august 2017. Is there any chance to get a normal pregnancy? I want to hve a baby girl. Thanks

Ectopic pregnancy: If your tube with the ectopic pregnancy was removed, ask your gyn about getting a hysterosalpingogram (HSG) to make sure your other tube is not obstructed (an x-ray/fluoroscopic picture). If open after the x-ray, it is very possible for a normal pregnancy to occur. Test for ovulation with a kit from a drugstore to increase your chances after the HSG. ...Read more

My hCG level went from 524 to 616 im six weeks and three days could I have a normal pregnancy or is this a ectopic again?

Ectopic: You can not determine whether you have an ectopic based on your blood work. I would suggest you get an ultrasound. The majority of ectopic pregnancies can be identified when you beta HCG reaches a level of 1200. ...Read more

I've recently had an ectopic pregnancy. Is there a chance to have a healthy and normal pregnancy even if my boyfriend has low sperm as well?

I've recently had an ectopic pregnancy. Is there a chance to have a healthy and normal pregnancy even if my boyfriend has low sperm as well?

Yes: There is a good chance you will be able to conceive again and have a full term pregnancy. But, there is a slightly increased risk of your having another ectopic pregnancy, so it is critical that you be followed as closely as possible by your ob-gyn as soon as your pregnancy test is poitive again. Wait at least two regular periods before trying again...Your boyfriend should be seen by a urologist.. ...Read more

Right tube removed after an ectopic. Left tube and ovary working perfectly, what is the percentage of having a normal pregnancy with 1 tube?

Right tube removed after an ectopic. Left tube and ovary working perfectly, what is the percentage of having a normal pregnancy with 1 tube?

Good: Removing one tube with a normal, non blocked remaining tube will decrease chance of getting pregnant but most likely only minimally. Eggs from either ovary can potentially make it to your remaining Fallopian tube. ...Read more

I've had 2 ectopics 1 on the left and had tube removed and 1 on the right which I had injection, what are my chances of having a normal pregnancy?

I've had 2 ectopics 1 on the left and had tube removed and 1 on the right which I had injection, what are my chances of having a normal pregnancy?

Very low chance: The reason the ectopic pregnancies keep recurring is still present- which is Fallopian tube partial obstruction. As a result, every time you think you may be pregnant you need to be checked immediately for another ectopic to save your remaining right Fallopian tube. IVF is your best chance for a normal intrauterine pregnancy. ...Read more

Hi I recently had an ectopic pregnancy and I want to know if I'm experiencing the same thing or am I having a normal pregnancy or am I pregnant at all?

Hi I recently had an ectopic pregnancy and I want to know if I'm experiencing the same thing or am I having a normal pregnancy or am I pregnant at all?

Check with OB/GYN!: The rates of recurrent ectopic pregnancy after single dose methotrexate, salpingectomy, and linear salpingostomy were 8, 10, and 15%, respectively, among women who attempted to conceive again.
Seek early care with a gynecologist and check serial beta HCG levels and transvaginal sonograms until intrauterine viable pregnancy is determined conclusively. Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily! ...Read more

Does having an ovarian cyst increase chance of ectopic / normal pregnancy?

Does having an ovarian cyst increase chance of ectopic / normal pregnancy?

No: For the most part having ovarian cysts doesn't increase risk of ectopic pregnancy. The only situation that I can think of where it would is if a woman had endometriosis as a cause of the cyst. Endometriosis can cause scarring and increase risk of ectopic pregnancy that way. But usually a functional cyst will not increase risk of ectopic. ...Read more

Would doctors be able to detect ectopic pregnancy when doing surgical abortion for normal pregnancy?

Please Clarify: No. But, why? A person cannot be pregnant twice at the same time. Ectopic pregnancy happens outside of the uterus, thus it would not be diagnosed during a surgical procedure in the uterus. ...Read more

I was in ER lastnight and today they took an ultrasound they said it could be ectopic pregnancy miscarriage or normal pregnancy there not surewhatdoid

Follow with Gynecolo: You need to consult your gynecologist asap to determine what is going on
tubal pregnancy needs to be treated asap before the tube ruptures
misscarriage needs to be followed up as well
and if it is normal pregnancy you need pre natal care as well
if ultrasound may not show tubal pregnancy and you may have to do transvaginal ultrasound.So consult your ob/gyn doctor. ...Read more

How can you tell the difference between normal pregnancy symptoms and ectopic pregnancies/miscarriage? Cramping is normal in all these how do you know

How can you tell the difference between normal pregnancy symptoms and ectopic pregnancies/miscarriage? Cramping is normal in all these how do you know

Ectopic Pregnancy: Ectopic pregnancy may be suspected if a woman has abdominal pain with peritoneal (surgical) signs indicating a surgical consultation is immediately needed, especially if she is hemodynamically unstable. If a woman has milder pain, +HCG >1500, transvaginal ultrasound is very useful but not 100%. If fetal heart tones seen and gestational sac seen with +HCG can rule out, if not seen serial HCGs/ D&C. ...Read more

For a normal pregnancy, how many ultrasounds are done and when are these done?

Let me advise you: Fetal ultrasound is often done during the first trimester to confirm and date the pregnancy and again during the second trimester — between 18 and 20 weeks — when anatomic details are visible. If your baby's health needs to be monitored more closely, ultrasounds might be repeated throughout the pregnancy. ...Read more

After a normal pregnancy I suffered two miscarriages in a row. What can I do to insure a normal pregnancy the next time?

After a normal pregnancy I suffered two miscarriages in a row. What can I do to insure a normal pregnancy the next time?

Get a checkup: Most likely your next pregnancy will be normal and healthy. However, after 2 miscarriages in a row, an evaluation by your gynecologist or a reproductive endocrinologist is a good idea. Most problems that are found during an evaluation for recurrent miscarriage can be fixed: low thyroid, uterine scarring, are 2 examples of common curable problems in this situation. See your doctor! Good luck! ...Read more

I'm expecting my second child, I have a daughter. Sometimes I feel she is too clingy and want space from her. Is this normal pregnancy behavior?

I'm expecting my second child, I have a daughter. Sometimes I feel she is too clingy and want space from her. Is this normal pregnancy behavior?

Pretty normal: Starting at 6-9 mo & well into the 4th year kids realize their mother is a more dependable source of comfort/attention/food than any stranger or other family. They also don't have a brain maturity that allows them to realize that when you are not in their view, you still exist. You may feel smothered, but this is normal & improves gradually with age & maturity. Use distraction to keep her occupied ...Read more

Is it possible for me to be having an ectopic pregnancy with -1.2 serum test results? Dr has ruled everything out, test results, all is "normal."

Not likely: If what you described is serum HCG level of 1.2, that is not compatible with pregnancy. You apparently have had transvaginal ultrsound and that should have picked up a mass if you had ectopic pregnancy. ...Read more

What are the chances of having a normal pregnancy after having my tubes untied?

What are the chances of having a normal pregnancy after having my tubes untied?

Possible, but risks: It is a possibility, but the tubes would still be scarred from the tubal. This increases the risk of ectopic pregnancy, if you are able to get pregnant. You should notify your doc right away to make sure that the pregnancy is normal.
If you are 39 and only want one or two children, in vitro may be a good option to consider, and might be more cost effective as well. ...Read more

If I was born prematurely, can I have a normal pregnancy?

If I was born prematurely, can I have a normal pregnancy?

Yes: Women who were born early or whose mothers had pregnancy complications or difficult births should tell their OB providers about those events. But in general, the likelihood of the daughters having those problems is less than their chance of not having them. A detailed history from women in the family is helpful for everyone pregnant whether or not their moms had high-risk OB or other conditions. ...Read more

If I was born prematurely, can I have a normal pregnancy?

If I was born prematurely, can I have a normal pregnancy?

Yes: The great majority of women born as preemies can have normal pregnancies. Exceptions would be women who were very ill as preemies and ended up with long-term medical problems. Legs or hips contractures from cerebral palsy make it harder to get into a good position for vaginal delivery. Short-gut syndrome after necrotizing enterocolitis makes it hard for a pregnant woman to get enough nutrition. ...Read more
