Ectopic Pregnancy - 3 Treatment Methods

DGO, MAOGD, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Panchkula
Ectopic Pregnancy - 3 Treatment Methods

In a normal pregnancy, the egg that the ovaries release enters the fallopian tube. If a sperm fertilises it, the fertilised egg attaches itself inside the uterus. However, sometimes the fertilised egg can attach itself outside the uterus. This condition is called ectopic pregnancy.

Ectopic pregnancy can be detected in the first few weeks of the pregnancy itself. If your doctor does discover ectopic pregnancy, you would need immediate medical attention. Ectopic pregnancies can be sad and scary. The survival rate of the baby is extremely low, and you may need some time to get over your loss. Fortunately, one ectopic pregnancy doesn't mean you can never conceive again. Many women who lost their first baby to ectopic pregnancy have been able to have a healthy and normal pregnancy the second time around.

The causes of ectopic pregnancy include:

  1. An inflammation or infection of the fallopian tube can lead it to become entirely or partially blocked.
  2. Scar tissue from a surgery or an infection of the fallopian tube may also hinder the movement of the fertilised egg.
  3. Surgery in the tubes or pelvic areas in the past might cause adhesions.
  4. Birth defects or abnormal growths can cause anomalies in the shape of the tube.

These causes are usually followed by certain risk factors, such as:

  • Age (The age group of 35-44 especially)
  • An ectopic pregnancy in the past
  • Previous abdominal or pelvic surgery
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Several prompted abortions
  • Conceiving with an intrauterine device in place
  • Smoking
  • Endometriosis (growth of uterus lining tissues outside the uterus).
  • Fertility treatments.

The signs and symptoms of ectopic pregnancy include:

  1. Minimal vaginal bleeding
  2. Vomiting and nausea with pain
  3. Pain in the lower abdomen
  4. Sharp cramps in the abdomen
  5. Localised pain (Pain concentrated on one side of your body)
  6. Pain in your neck, rectum or shoulder
  7. Rupture of the fallopian tubes can cause fainting due to the bleeding and pain

The treatment of ectopic pregnancy can be any one of the following:

  1. If the pregnancy has not progressed too far, methotrexate will be administered. This absorbs the pregnancy tissue and can save the fallopian tubes.
  2. The tubes may be removed if they have ruptured or stretched, and have started bleeding.
  3. Laparoscopic surgery (operations performed by making minor incisions) may be performed to remove or repair the tubes and recover the ectopic pregnancy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Hi, We are married for 3 years and trying for baby. We have started with treatments a year back, but nothing clicked. I used to be very jovial and active before. But, now I have become quiet and depressed. Frustration to the core. Not able to concentrate well in work as well.

Hi as per your history is concerned please note following points carefully-: 1) Bring an ovulation kit from the market and check it at home.[Read instructions carefully] 2) Do a [Hyterosalpingography] examination to check blockage of tube 3) If no blockage found then do a ovarian reserve testing 4) Check fasting blood sugar ,TSH, T3,T4 5) Do a pelvic trasvaginal ultrasound [hesterosonography] to ruled out ovary and uterus pathology 6) Finally if above method fails then do a Diagnostic laparoscopy which will ruled out endometriosis and if any minor repair is required it can be repaired. Follow me with report Thanks.

Dear lybrate user since every effect has a cause in the same way behind hormonal imbalance also there are several reasons so palliative, suppressive treatment can not cure you it needs a constitutional treatment for permanent cure also eat more vegetables and fruits and exercise daily.

Neural Mechanism of Sex
Neural mechanism of sex

The sex center is in the limbic system near hypothalamus in the brain. The brain receives sensory signals and transmits messages to the muscles and blood vessels.
The sensory pathways especially from the five special senses- touch, sight, hearing, smell and taste - play an important role in the sexual arousal.

Less movement at this age is a matter of foncern. If there is cord around neck, we have to look how baby is doing, before planning normal delivery. You should go for doppler and ctg if you plan for normal delivery.

There is no such interaction I guess. But if you want to take then homoeopathy is far better then allopathic antibiotics. As they don't have any side effects. You may take Phytolacca 30 3 doses 1 hourly. And another advise is to avoid the birth control pills as they have many side effects in a long run. You can read them online. Instead use condoms. Or CE method.

Your bmi is high 27.7 unless you reduce your weight, ovulation will not occur and it will be difficult to get pregnant. Reduce weight to 65 then only plan pregnancy.

Is a Low Sodium Diet Good or Bad?

B.Sc - Home Science, PG Diploma - Dietics, M.Sc - DFSM

Is a Low Sodium Diet Good or Bad?

Most dieticians are of the opinion that limiting your salt intake is essential, as an increased amount of salt in the system can damage your kidneys, heart and may increase your blood pressure, and chances of stroke. On the other hand, decreasing it beyond a point can prove to be detrimental to your health in various ways as well.

However, when relating to blood pressure, an increased salt intake can prove harmful to you only if you already have high blood pressure. In the case of normal levels of blood pressure, excess salt consumption will not prove to be too dangerous. Here are the ways in which low salt intake can prove to be detrimental for your health:

  • Increases chances of heart diseases: Having a lower amount of salt in your diet - i.e. less than 2000 mg per day increases the risk of heart-related disorders, which include, but may not be limited to, strokes or heart attacks, exponentially.
  • Decreases the body's level of sodium: Decreased levels of sodium in the body, often a direct byproduct of a reduced salt intake, can lead to a number of complications. Sodium is essential for maintaining electrolyte and mineral balance in the body. A decrease in sodium levels in the system, in extreme cases, can lead to hyponatremia, which can prove detrimental for the kidneys or liver.

Salt, which mainly contains two radicals - sodium and chloride ions, are essential for life. However, they can be obtained only through food as it is not manufactured intrinsically. There are several essential reasons for why salt intake in the optimal amounts is absolutely crucial in maintaining healthy body functioning:

  • It is an essential component of blood plasma, as well as several other crucial body fluids such as extracellular fluid, lymphatic fluid, and amniotic fluid.
  • It is important for maintenance and regulation of a proper level of blood pressure.
  • Sodium, in the context of body physiology, is critical in maintaining a proper acid-base level in your system and in controlling the levels of your body fluid.
  • The exchange of sodium and potassium ions, both obtained from salts, is also essential for muscle movement and in sending signals from the brain to the muscles. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dietitian/Nutritionist.
