What Is an Ectopic or Tubal Pregnancy?
Women who are trying to conceive are excited beyond hope, and only want the best for their unborn child and new baby. The fetus needs to take the time to grow in the woman’s uterus. But unfortunately, sometimes things go terribly wrong. It is those times that are the most harrowing for the woman, the unborn baby and her family. These are the times and instances where the knowledge and care of a doctor count the most. But this will go horribly awry, when a doctor misses the signs of a serious condition, such as an ectopic or a tubal pregnancy.
An ectopic or tubal pregnancy is when a fertilized fetus implants itself outside of the uterus. If there is a ruptured ectopic pregnancy, there is actually a higher risk of death for the pregnant woman with this condition. A pregnant woman can have a higher risk of an ectopic pregnancy when she has already experienced:
- Cigarette smoking as a habit
- Fallopian tube surgery
- A previous ectopic pregnancy
- Pelvic inflammatory disease
If a woman is pregnant and develops vaginal bleeding or unexplained lower abdominal pain, it could be a sign of an ectopic pregnancy. For this reason, it is very important to get this diagnosis of the condition as soon as possible, as it can mean a death sentence for any woman with this condition.
An Ectopic Pregnancy Can Be Highly Dangerous If Not Properly Diagnosed
An ectopic pregnancy is a serious condition, and needs to be diagnosed immediately if it is the case for a pregnant woman. When a woman has an ectopic pregnancy, it is impossible to save the fetus and growing baby in that case. The reason is because the pregnancy needs to be terminated and removed before the fetus grows too large. Once the fetus ruptures, there is no turning back, and both the mother and fetus have a high risk of death in those cases.

How Is an Ectopic or Tubal Pregnancy a Treated and Medically Managed?
The ectopic or tubal pregnancy is treated with three options, which are:
- Expectant management
With the expectant management, the woman’s condition is monitored carefully, to determine if any other treatments are necessary to alleviate the condition. If there is any medication to be added to the treatment, methotrexate is often used to stop the pregnancy from growing any further. As a last result, a surgical procedure is used to remove and terminate the pregnancy. Unfortunately, the woman’s fallopian tube also has to be removed as it is affected by the ectopic pregnancy as well.
What Are the Serious Side Effects of an Ectopic or Tubal Pregnancy?
There are many other serious side effects from these diagnoses for an ectopic pregnancy, and the woman may also experience:
- Abdomen pain
- Feeling sick
- Internal bleeding
- Injections to prevent Rhesus disease in future pregnancies
A doctor or primary care physician must see that this condition is presenting itself to a pregnant woman, if it is there and present.
