Ectopic Pregnancy in Mumbai | Dr Neelima Mantri

In normal pregnancy, the fertilization of egg and sperm occurs in the fallopian tube which then travels to the womb where the baby starts growing. But in the case of ectopic pregnancy, the situation is a bit complicated. The fertilized egg doesn’t grow in the womb rather settles and grows in the cervix, ovary, or tube and sometimes in the abdomen.

Though this case happens rarely, it is a severe problem that can be fatal for the mother. This is why precautions should be taken. Let us first learn about the symptoms of this critical pregnancy.

Below are mentioned some symptoms of ectopic pregnancy.

  • >  The very first symptom is vaginal bleeding and bleeding inside the tummy.
  • >  The patient may suffer from severe pain in the stomach.
  • >  Symptoms like nausea and puking are very common in this case.
  • >  The patients may suffer from extreme pain in the shoulder tips that can be a result of blood in the abdomen.
  • >  The patient may feel uncomfortable and irritated while peeing and pooping.
  • >  Due to excessive bleeding, there is a chance of fainting and collapsing.

The normal pregnancy symptoms are also shown in this critical pregnancy. However, if the abdominal pain, vaginal bleeding, shoulder pain, and fainting become severe, you must consult the best female gynae to diagnose for ectopic pregnancy.

The diagnosis involves transvaginal sonography after 4-5 weeks of the last menstruation to see if the fertilized egg is growing in the womb or not. A blood test for the hormone HCG can be done as well to see if it doubles in 48 hours or not. If not, then this is a possible case of ectopic pregnancy.

The Treatments

Several treatment options are suggested to the patients according to their physical condition, the severity of pregnancy, and weeks of pregnancy.

  • Methotrexate injection– This is a primary treatment where methotrexate is pushed into the patient only if her health condition is stable. Also, it is only for the primary stage of pregnancy. It stops the growth of pregnancy cells. After taking the injection, you can’t breastfeed.
  • Surgery– Laparoscopic surgery can be done in the case of ectopic pregnancy. It involves either removing or repairing the tube. The decision would depend on the condition of the patient. If the case is serious (heavy bleeding), doctors suggest open surgery to remove ectopic tissues. You may require a blood transfusion if the bleeding is severe.

The Causes

There are various reasons behind ectopic pregnancy. The best female gynae suggests the possible causes below.

  • Many hormonal disorders can be the reason.
  • Any infection or inflammation in the fallopian tube can be a cause.
  • Smoking may cause this condition.
  • Fertility drugs and treatments can also result in ectopic pregnancy.
  • Sexually transmitted infection may cause this condition.
