WHAT IS ECTOPIC PREGNANCY?

At Harsh Hospital & Maternity Home, we provide Treat for Ectopic Pregnancy. For pregnancy to happen, the ovary needs to discharge an egg into the fallopian tube, where it remains for around 24 hours. There it needs to interact with a sperm to be fertilised. The fertilised egg remains in the fallopian tube for 3 or 4 days before it moves to the uterus.

In any case, if the fertilized egg embeds in your fallopian tube, you end up with what’s called an ectopic pregnancy. In these rare cases, the pregnancy can’t proceed with regularly, and sometimes it requires emergency treatment.


SYMPTOMS

Light vaginal bleeding and pelvic pain are generally the primary side effects, yet others could include:

  •     Nausea and vomiting with pain
  •     Severe stomach pain
  •     Weakness
  •     Pain in your shoulder, neck, or rectum
  •     It may cause the fallopian tube to burst. In this rare event, you could have significant pain and extreme bleeding, causing fall in blood pressure and may require emergency surgery.
