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

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.

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.

What are the causes of a tubal (ectopic) pregnancy?

What are the causes of a tubal (ectopic) pregnancy?

Varies: Some occur without any known risk factor or reason. Others are caused by malfunctioning fallopian tubes. This can be caused by infections like chlamydia or gynecologic problems like endometriosis. What is certain is that having one ectopic increases the chances of it happening again. Being on birth control to prevent this life threatening issue is important.

What's the best way to know if my Plan B has caused/resulted in an ectopic pregnancy?

What's the best way to know if my Plan B has caused/resulted in an ectopic pregnancy?

See your doctor: Plan b will not prevent an ectopic pregnancy so the chance of an ectopic is higher when Plan B fails. If you get pregnant on Plan B you need to be monitored more closely until it is certain the pregnancy is normal. This is not the same as saying Plan B causes the ectopic.

What is the cause of a chemical or ectopic pregnancy in ivf?

Uterus vs tube: A "chemical" pregnancy in most cases is a pregnancy that implanted in the uterus, but miscarried very early. Before any sign on ultrasound. An ectopic pregnancy, which is more common in ivf pregnanices, is a pregnancy that implants in the tube, and is usually determined based on symptoms, abnormally rising HCG levels and ultrasound.

Does fibroids cause ectopic pregnancy?

Unlikely: Ectopic pregnancy is generally because of damage to the fallopian tubes themselves. Fibroids may affect the shape and size of the uterus and the uterine cavity, but not the tubes themselves.

Can a miscarriage cause an ectopic pregnancy?

No: Ectopic is a pregnancy outside of the normal place in the uterus. It is most commonly found in the fallopian tube but can also be found on an ovary, the cervix, in the abdomen or in the corner of the uterus. Ectopic s are treated with medication or surgery as the fetus cannot survive. Tubal ectopics may be associated with previous tubal damage from infection or endometriosis.

What causes ectopic pregnancy?

Damage to the tubes: Ectopic pregnancy is a pregnancy that implants somewhere outside the uterus. Most often, it is in the tube but ectopics can happen on the ovary or attach to the bowel, or bladder. Usually the tubes are damaged in some way from infection, endometriosis, or a variety of other reasons.

What causes an ectopic pregnancy to develop?

Ectopic pregnancy: An ectopic pregnancy occurs when the developing embryo does not implant in the uterus but on some other structure. Common places include the fallopian tube, the ovary, and the cornual area of the uterus. A cause of ectopic pregnancies is tubal damage by sexually transmitted diseases.

I wanted to know the possible causes of an ectopic pregnancy. And how it can be avoided?

Tube abnormal: The sperm and egg meet in the tube instead of implanting in the uterus adhesions, prior disease in the tube (gonorrhea) used to be one of the common ones) avoid any pregnancy but that is not a great option!

After iud removal can it cause ectopic pregnancy?

After iud removal can it cause ectopic pregnancy?

Depends: If you conceive the month after removal it may increase your risk slightly. History of an STD such as chlamydia or gonorrhea increases the risk also. However, most ectopics occur in women with no risk factors.

I have eccessive pain during intercouse and had my fallopean tubes removed due to ectopic pregnancy and was wondeeing what could be the cause?

I have eccessive pain during intercouse and had my fallopean tubes removed due to ectopic pregnancy and was wondeeing what could be the cause?

Not the ectopic: Painful intercourse has several possible causes. The ectopic surgery is usually not one of them, though adhesions (scar tissue inside your belly from the surgery) can cause painful sex at times. Most often, pain with sex is lack of lubrication (use something like KY jelly) or lack of interest (are you making love or having sex?). An exam &specific details about when & where the pain is would help.

Does Clomid (clomiphene) Cause ectopic pregnancy or misscarage?

Does Clomid (clomiphene) Cause ectopic pregnancy or misscarage?

No…: Clomid (clomiphene) is used to help conceive a pregnancy. Without the Clomid (clomiphene) there might not be a pregnancy that could either be ectopic of miscarry. I guess in that sense it would increase the risk by increasing the risk of the pregnancy itself.

Can taking the morning after pill cause an ectopic pregnancy?

No: Taking the "morning-after pill" should have no effect on the risk of ectopic pregnancy; if anything, it should decrease the risk of ectopic pregnancy because it decreases the risk of any pregnancy altogether! Hope this helps - good luck!
