Ectopic Pregnancy

What is an ectopic pregnancy?

An ectopic pregnancy is a medical condition where a fertilized egg implants and grows outside the main cavity of the uterus, most commonly in a fallopian tube. This is why it’s often called a tubal pregnancy. The fallopian tubes aren’t designed to hold a growing embryo, so this type of pregnancy cannot proceed normally and is potentially dangerous for the mother.

It’s essential for preserving the health and future fertility of the woman affected. Treatment options usually include medication like methotrexate, which stops the growth of the pregnancy, or surgical interventions if necessary, especially in advanced cases or in emergencies like a ruptured fallopian tube.


Symptoms of Tubal Pregnancy

  • Abnormal Vaginal Bleeding: This may differ from a regular period, often being lighter, heavier, or accompanied by a darker or watery discharge.
  • Pelvic Pain: Sharp, stabbing pain on one side of the pelvis is common. This pain can be persistent and may vary in intensity.
  • Abdominal Discomfort: Dull or cramping pain in the abdomen, distinct from normal menstrual cramps, is a warning sign.
  • Shoulder Pain: This can occur if blood from a ruptured tubal pregnancy builds up under the diaphragm.
  • Dizziness or Weakness: These symptoms may arise due to blood loss, leading to fainting or a feeling of light-headedness.
  • Gastrointestinal Symptoms: Some women experience nausea or diarrhea.

Procedure involved in treatment of Ectopic Pregnancy

  • Medication: Early cases may be treated with methotrexate, which stops pregnancy tissue growth.
  • Laparoscopic Surgery: For larger or risky cases, this minimally invasive surgery removes ectopic tissue.
  • Salpingectomy: Removal of the affected fallopian tube, often done laparoscopically.
  • Salpingostomy: Removing the ectopic pregnancy while preserving the fallopian tube.
  • Monitoring: Post-treatment monitoring of hCG levels to ensure complete removal of ectopic tissue.
