When after sex can you possibly feel the signs of a possible ectopic pregnancy?

You can't: There is no way to determine if you are pregnant between ovulation and the start of the next period. If you've had a positive test, most ectopics are pretty silent until about the 5th week at the earliest. Are you at risk for ectopic? If so and you are pregnant see a doctor asap, do not wait for symptoms. ...Read more

What are some signs of an ectopic pregnancy? 22yo, mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD 2 1/2 years. Lower r. Pain near hipbone and into groin area. Ct scan said not appendicit

C MD: If you are concerned about a possible ectopic pregnancy then you need to be checked immediately. Did they not do a pregnancy test before the ct scan? Other things like cysts, endometriosis, inflammatory bowel disease, diverticulitis, hernias can all cause those symptoms but most are detectable on a ct or a pelvic ultrasound.

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

Did having 3 previous c-sections cause me to get an ectopic pregnancy?

Did having 3 previous c-sections cause me to get an ectopic pregnancy?

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 more

Could having previous c-sections cause me now to have a ectopic pregnancy?

Could having previous c-sections cause me now to have a ectopic pregnancy?

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 more

Does having previous c-sections increase my chance of having an ectopic pregnancy?

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 more
