Pregnancy 101 | Ectopic Pregnancy:
http://www.lumalove.com/ What exactly is an ectopic pregnancy? Well under a normal situation when the egg meets the sperm, it happens up in the fallopian tubes. It takes about 10-14 days for this fertilized ovum to swim its way all the way down into the lining of the womb and find a little place where it is going to grow. An ectopic pregnancy is a pregnancy that occurs outside the lining of the womb. You may be wondering how many women does an ectopic pregnancy happen. Well, it depends on where you get your statistics from, but on average one in every 4000 pregnant women end up getting an ectopic pregnancy, and about 95% of those pregnancies all happen in the fallopian tube.
An ectopic pregnancy can be very, very severe. About 5% of ectopic pregnancies happen outside the fallopian tube in the abdominal cavity. An ectopic pregnancy could occur in your cervix or any other place within the abdomen. Ectopic pregnancy is severe because it does kill. One out of every 2000 women that have an ectopic pregnancy will die because of hemorrhage. So how does it happen? A woman gets pregnant, and she has no symptoms at all. She is feeling fine, might even have nausea. She has got a positive pregnancy test.
The ectopic pregnancy is growing normal except the pregnancy is not growing in the right place. Inside your body, you have this little thin fallopian tube, and you have a baby growing inside of the tube. As soon as the baby gets to about six weeks pregnant, the developing baby can no longer survive within the fallopian tube because the fallopian tube is not big enough for it. So if you are lucky, you will get symptoms, and those symptoms can be abdominal pain. Of course, you would have all the symptoms of pregnancy, and you might even know you are pregnant, but the only one thing that you might get extra is the pain. This pain just happens out of nowhere. The pain is constant. You might even notice that when you have intercourse, it could even hurt you.
Pain and an ectopic pregnancy:
If you are pregnant and you start getting pain, please go and see your primary care provider, so you can have an ultrasound done, and we can locate where your pregnancy is. I have seen on several occasion women just show up in the emergency room with a huge hemorrhage. What happens is the baby is going to grow and grow and grow inside your fallopian tubes, and you have massive blood vessels that are all the way along the fallopian tube. As soon as this baby grows too big, it is going to burst through your fallopian tube, burst through a major blood vessel within your pelvis and within five minutes you could hemorrhage to death.
I have seen a couple of women dead on arrival as a consequence of an ectopic pregnancy. If they are suspecting that you have an ectopic pregnancy you already will know how serious it is and probably you know if they suspect you have an ectopic pregnancy they will want a confirmed diagnosis of a definite ectopic or not.
After diagnosis straight away you would be admitted to have surgery because they have to go into the fallopian tube and crush out the pregnancy because if the ectopic pregnancy bursts or ruptures you could die. It is not unusual for an ectopic pregnancy especially if it has burst that you could have lost that fallopian tube. Well you know when you look at it losing a fallopian tube, yes I know it is very, very, very traumatic for a woman. But thank God you had competent physicians to save your life and diagnosed you because if you did not, you would have died from hemorrhage due to an ectopic pregnancy.
For lots of other information about pregnancy pop on over to my website or if you have had an ectopic pregnancy and you have a hard time getting over the emotional side of it. I am a health coach for pregnancy, and I help women that have suffered the loss of a baby. An ectopic pregnancy is a loss, a genuine loss, especially if you wanted this baby. You may have thought everything was going well. Then suddenly boom suddenly not only did you lose your baby, but you might have lost a fallopian tube. Losing a fallopian tube means that you now have a 50% chance of getting pregnant. Without a doubt, this will cause a lot of grief, and I can help you out.
