Ectopic Pregnancy Causes- Introduction

From the time of fertilization till pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through a number of steps. During one of these steps, the fertilized egg reaches the uterus and attaches itself there. However, in an ectopic pregnancy, the fertilized egg doesn’t follow this step. An ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilized egg implants and grows outside the main cavity of uterus, like Fallopian tube, Cervix, Abdominal cavity etc. An ectopic pregnancy can’t lead to or develop into a live birth. Apart from the uterus, the embryo cannot survive anywhere else. If not treated, this can have threatening consequences. With immediate treatment, you will be able to reduce the complications and various other risks and enhance your chances of healthy pregnancies in the future, and also decrease several health complications.

What is the causes of an ectopic pregnancy?

The exact cause of an ectopic pregnancy is still unknown and not very clear. However, some of the conditions, which influence this disorder, are;

  • The scarring or inflammation of the fallopian tubes, which can be a result of a prior medical disorder, an infection, or maybe a surgery.
  • Various hormonal factors can also lead.
  • It can also be a result of genetic abnormalities.
  • There are a few medical conditions, which can affect the shape and even the condition of the reproductive organs, including the Fallopian tube.

However, not all cases are the same. If you ever notice any symptoms related to this disorder, visit a doctor immediately.

What are the  ectopic pregnancy symptoms?

Generally ectopic pregnancy does not show any specific symptoms other than normal symptoms of Pregnancy like nausea, breast tenderness, sometimes pain in lower abdomen, Vaginal bleeding & faintius episodes may occur which are more specific for ectopic Pregnancy and Ectopic Pregnancy cost .

The early warning signs: Ectopic Pregnancy Cost

The first warning signs of this disorder are usually the pelvic pain and slight vaginal bleeding. If there is a leakage of blood from the Fallopian tube then you may also experience extreme abdominal pain or pelvic discomfort, with an urge to pass stools. If there is heavy bleeding, you may experience shoulder pain as well since the blood starts getting accumulated in your pelvis and abdomen. The specific symptoms of this disorder depend on where the accumulation of blood is taking place and the nerves that are getting disturbed because of it.
