Ectopic pregnancy In normal cases of pregnancy, a woman's ovary takes one egg to the fallopian tube, and in the event that this egg meets a man's sperm, fertilization takes place, and the fertilized egg travels to the uterus to hang on to its lining, and begins to grow for nine months. But in one of every fifty pregnancies, the fertilized egg may remain in the fallopian tube, and this condition is called the tubular pregnancy (ectopic pregnancy), and in other cases the fertilized egg may attach to the ovary, which may affect the life of the woman, so the condition and work must be discovered To treat her as soon as possible. Symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy, a woman may be able to discover the problem of ectopic pregnancy by noticing some of the accompanying symptoms, such as:
Mild vaginal bleeding. Nausea and vomiting accompanied by pain. Pain in the lower abdomen. Acute colic. Pain on one side of the body. Dizziness or general weakness in the body. Pain in the shoulders, neck, or rectum. Fainting as the condition progresses and develops, the fallopian tube may tear, causing severe pain and bleeding. If a woman feels one or more of the above symptoms, she should immediately see her own doctor or the nearest emergency department to get appropriate treatment, to avoid any severe bleeding and to maintain fertility. Causes of ectopic pregnancy One of the reasons for the occurrence of ectopic pregnancy is damage or defect in the fallopian tubes, which may prevent the fertilized egg from returning to the uterus, and the woman may never know what caused this condition, but she is more likely to be infected if: Women using intrauterine birth control (IUD). Previously infected women with pelvic inflammatory disease. Sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia and gonorrhea. Congenital problems (from birth) in the fallopian tube. The woman is subjected to previous pelvic surgery, which prevents the fertilized egg from returning to the womb. The woman had previously had an ectopic pregnancy. Using fertility drugs. Infertility treatments such as in vitro fertilization. Treatment of the problem of ectopic pregnancy if the doctor suspects the fallopian tube is torn, he will perform immediate and urgent surgery to stop the bleeding. In some severe cases, the duct or ovary may be damaged and the doctor will have to remove it permanently. If the problem is discovered early, it will be solved by performing laparoscopic surgery, in which the fetus will be aborted and the damage treated. Damage to an ectopic pregnancy when this condition is discovered early will not cause any serious side effects affecting the health of the woman, and the loss will only be in the abortion of the fetus, but in advanced cases the fallopian tubes may tear leading to permanent damage, and thus affect the fertility of the woman and her inability to conceive once Another. In a few cases, especially when appropriate treatment is not taken, a woman's life may be endangered by bleeding and severe pain.
