Can Ectopic Pregnancy Be Maintained?
Hello, I want to ask whether the ectopic pregnancy can be maintained. Continue ectopic pregnancy is a fetus that is conceived or a type of cyst? Please explain, thank you
Hello Mrs. Annisa Rizka Berlianda PutriGultom, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
As you might already know, ectopic pregnancy is a pregnancy that occurs outside of the womb, which will potentially threaten the lives of pregnant women if the pregnancy is not treated immediately. This is due to ectopic pregnancy occurring in several places in the female reproductive organ but outside the area of the uterus, such as the ovaries, fallopian tubes / channels of the ovaries, cervix or even in the abdominal cavity. Some reasons for this pregnancy need to be stopped immediately are because:
if the fetus attaches to the fallopian tube, it will cause the fallopian tube to burst, and this can lead to death due to internal bleeding, and the body experiences shock. Ectopic pregnancy can cause a decrease in the chances of a subsequent pregnancy because of damage to the fallopian tube after an ectopic pregnancy increases the likelihood of recurring ectopic pregnancy. Which is if this happens again it can be said that the mother's life is also threatened again. Ectopic pregnancy is not a tumor, but the child or the result of fertilization between sperm and ovum that grows is not in its proper place (in the womb). Because the fetus will certainly increase in size if the pregnancy is continued, it will also increase the risk of ectopic pregnancy complications such as internal organ rupture / internal reproductive damage, internal bleeding, shock, and death. It will be clearer if you consult directly with an obstetrician so that you can check with the results of other examinations (physical examination and ultrasound examination). Thus we can convey, hopefully our explanation can be useful for you. thanks.
