Ectopic Pregnancy also known as tubular pregnancy occurs when a fertilized egg implants somewhere other than the main cavity of the uterus. Ectopic pregnancy is a risky condition and warrants immediate attention and treatment. Here the fertilized egg attaches itself and grows in the fallopian tubes.
Causes of Ectopic Pregnancy
An ectopic pregnancy occurs when the egg which is fertilized by the sperm gets attached to the fallopian tube linings starts growing there. Restrictive movement of egg owing to an inflammation or infection in the tube, the presence of STDs, birth defects, due to the presence of surgical adhesions and so on are the different reasons by which this can occur. Endometrium inflammation, delayed pregnancy after an age of about 40, repeated use of fertility drugs or a history of repeated abortions etc are some other reasons.
Signs and symptoms of Ectopic Pregnancy >
Some of the indications of ectopic pregnancy include severe abdominal and pelvic pain, fatigue, vomiting or nausea, body pain in neck shoulder or back and vaginal discharge in light red color.
Diagnosis is done by an abdominal examination followed by an ultrasound. It will help in ascertaining the location of fetal growth. Immediate treatment procedures are to be initiated at the earliest if an ectopic pregnancy is detected during the diagnosis.
Surgical removal of ectopic growth or repair of the fallopian tube is required in most of the cases where internal bleeding has occurred. This can be done in two ways as, Salpingostomy and Salpingectomy.
