Woman who had her womb removed nearly died because of a rare ectopic pregnancy | Daily Mail Online

by pregnancy journalist
A woman nearly died after she became pregnant despite having her womb removed six years earlier. In a case believed to be only the third of its kind ever recorded, the 32-year-old went to hospital in Ethiopia with abdominal pain and vomiting. She was confused, had a rapid heart rate, laboured breathing and a swollen torso, and doctors realised she had gone into shock because of massive blood loss. Medics found an embryo, which didn’t survive, had been growing for 13 weeks on the ‘stump’ which was left of her cervix after the uterus above it had been removed. A […]

The Century-Old ‘Science Fiction’ Behind Ohio Rep’s Bill Covering Nonexistent Ectopic Pregnancy Treatment – Rewire.News

by pregnancy journalist
Ohio Rep. John Becker (R) drew widespread criticism last week for an anti-abortion bill that would allow insurance coverage for the “reimplantation” of an ectopic pregnancy into the uterus—a treatment that does not exist. Physicians and pro-choice advocates have called the line in the bill “science fiction,” but Becker told Rewire.News he does have sources to back up his claim: two articles—one more than 100 years old—with anecdotal stories from physicians who claim that “reimplanting” ectopic pregnancies into the uterus is possible. HB 182, which Becker first introduced in April, seeks to ban almost all insurance coverage of abortions in cases […]

by pregnancy journalist
An Ohio state representative introduced a new bill last month, which aims to prohibit insurance coverage of abortions that occur where the mother’s life is not “endangered if the fetus were carried to term.” The bill includes exceptions, including one for a procedure that does not exist. GOP Rep. John Becker introduced House Bill 182, which allows for two situations where insurers could offer coverage for abortion services. One is a “procedure, in an emergency situation, that is medically necessary to save the pregnant woman’s life.” The other, the bill says, is a procedure for an ectopic pregnancy, “that is […]

About 5,000 Australian women experience an ectopic pregnancy each year, where the embryo settles in the fallopian tubes instead of the uterus. As the embryo grows, it can cause the tubes to rupture, leading to extreme blood loss and emergency surgery. A chemotherapy drug called methotrexate is used to treat the disorder, but it can only be used in the early stages of pregnancy and fails in 75 per […]
