Information & Treatment of Infertility in Vancouver Canada
Ectopic Pregnancy and Infertility
Definition: a pregnancy that develops outside of the uterus, usually in a fallopian tube.
Symptoms: abdominal pain on one side, vaginal bleeding of dark blood, missed period and symptoms of pregnancy, faintness and lightheadedness, shoulder pain.
Causes: anything that may have damaged a fallopian tube can obstruct free flow of the fertilized egg to the uterus for implantation, thus implantation happens in the fallopian tube. If you have had a previous ectopic, your chances of another are higher. IUD's and IVF are also cause factors.
Diagnosis: ultrasound or laporoscopy.
Treatment: surgery as soon as possible. If you have had a previous ectopic pregnancy, an early ultrasound is important.
