Who Is at Risk of Ectopic Pregnancy?

by pregnancy journalist
In a normal pregnancy, fertilization of the ovum by the sperm takes place in the second part of the fallopian tubes to form a zygote which is then transported to the uterus for implantation. Implantation takes place in the upper part of the uterus on the endometrial layer.  In an ectopic pregnancy, implantation takes place outside the uterus, especially at the right fallopian tube. In Edinburg, women who have had an STD in the past have higher chances of getting an ectopic pregnancy. A tubal pregnancy is that which occurs on the fallopian tubes that connect the uterus to the […]

Conservative Treatment of Interstitial Ectopic Pregnancy with the Combination of Mifepristone and Methotrexate: Our Experience and Review of the Literature

by pregnancy journalist
Introduction. Interstitial pregnancy (IP) is an ectopic pregnancy (EP) located in the portion of the fallopian tube that penetrates the uterine muscular layer. Incidence increased in the last two decades with the widespread use of the assisted reproductive techniques. It is estimated in 1-6% of all the EPs, with a maternal mortality rate of 2.0-2.5%. Clinical presentation, gestational age at diagnosis, beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (β-hCG) levels, ultrasound features, and patient preference, should be considered to determine the best management: surgical, medical treatment, or close observation. We report two cases of IP successfully managed with systemic MTX and Mifepristone: in one […]

Ectopic Pregnancy: Signs & Symptoms, Diagnosis & Treatment – BabyKidsHQ

by pregnancy journalist
What is an Ectopic Pregnancy? An ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilized egg implants itself outside of the uterus. The most commonplace for implantation to occur in an ectopic pregnancy is in the fallopian tubes, hence the moniker “tubal pregnancy”. However, the fertilized egg may also implant in the ovary, cervix, or abdomen. It is extremely rare for an ectopic pregnancy to result in a live birth. Because the egg implants itself somewhere other than the uterus, it is not able to develop properly. As the egg grows, it stretches the organ in which it has implanted itself. Eventually, this […]

Ectopic Pregnancy: Everything You Need To Know

by pregnancy journalist
Ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilized egg implants itself outside the main uterine cavity and grows outside of it. Most often, the egg is in the fallopian tube – the tube that carries the eggs from the ovaries to the uterus. This is also known as a tubal pregnancy. However, an ectopic pregnancy doesn’t necessarily mean that the fertilized egg is in the fallopian tube. Sometimes they can also occur in a different area of the body like the cervix, abdominal cavity, or the ovary. The fetus in an ectopic pregnancy can survive for several weeks. Still, because the tissues outside […]
