Can Ectopic Pregnancy Recur And Have An Influence With Pelvic Inflammation?
Four months ago I had an ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy outside the womb) and then I had surgery. What I want to ask is whether an ectopic pregnancy can recur? Does it matter if my vaginal discharge often smells fishy like the smell of fish. Do you have an influence with pelvic inflammatory disease? Thank you …
Thank you for the question.
Normally, after fertilization occurs, the results of fertilization will travel to the uterus until it is embedded there. However, there are times when the results of fertilization are not embedded in the uterine wall, but in other places, for example in the fallopian tubes, ovaries, or even the abdominal cavity. This condition is called ectopic pregnancy. An ectopic pregnancy will make the sufferer feel quite severe pain in the lower abdomen (right, left, or middle) accompanied by abnormal bleeding from the birth canal as well as other signs of pregnancy. In order not to have serious complications, ectopic pregnancy must be treated immediately, such as by administering drugs to surgery.
A variety of factors can cause ectopic pregnancy, including pelvic inflammation. Pelvic inflammation can also be a cause of your vaginal discharge which appears excessive and smells unpleasant. However, not only that, ectopic pregnancy can also occur due to the influence of fertility therapy, a history of undergoing tubal surgery, as well as side effects of an IUD. Whitish smells unpleasant, in addition to pelvic inflammation, can also arise due to infection, irritation or allergic to the genitals, to malignancy around the reproductive organs.
Women who have a history of ectopic pregnancy are indeed far more at risk of re-experiencing ectopic pregnancy. For that, if you want to re-plan a pregnancy, you need to consult further with your obstetrician to be given a solution so that similar conditions do not recur. Your doctor may also direct you to undergo urine tests, cervical mucus, ultrasound, HSG, or other supporting tests to find out the cause of your vaginal discharge, as well as giving him the best treatment.
At present, what should be done to overcome the vaginal discharge is:
Do not carelessly use soap or fragrance around the genitals
Not having sex with a partner whose sexual history is not clear
Drink plenty of water
Does not hold back urination
Clean your genitals after every bowel movement and after sexual intercourse using good quality water, then wear clean clothes
Live a healthy lifestyle, multiply to eat foods rich in antioxidants, and not excessive stress
Not smoking, because smoking can also increase your risk of having an ectopic pregnancy
Hope this helps ...
