Pregnancy 101: Ectopic pregnancy and how to treat it

It is most women’s joy to conceive but that dream does not always come true for some who experience an ectopic pregnancy.

An ectopic pregnancy is one that occurs outside the womb, usually in one of the fallopian tubes.

The early sign/ warning of ectopic pregnancy are pelvic pain.

  • Light vaginal bleeding may also occur.
  • If heavy bleeding (hemorrhaging) occurs, you may feel shoulder pain as blood fills your pelvis and abdomen.
  • vaginal bleeding or spotting.
  • feeling very weak, dizzy, or fainting.

The main dangers of an ectopic pregnancy is that it can lead to death.

Ectopic pregnancies are rare — it happens in about 2 out of every 100 pregnancies. … Fallopian tubes can break if stretched too much by the growing pregnancy — this is sometimes called a ruptured ectopic pregnancy.

This can cause internal bleeding, infection, and in some cases lead to death.

Here are ways to treat an ectopic pregnancy

A pregnancy won’t survive if it’s ectopic, because a fertilized egg can’t grow fully outside your uterus.

Ectopic pregnancy treatment is medicine or surgery:

  • You can get shots of a medicine called methotrexate that ends the ectopic pregnancy.
  • The pregnancy can be removed with a surgical procedure using laparoscopy.
