Can I Have Sex During An Ectopic Pregnancy?
ectopic pregnancy surgery, including what surgery is light
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilized egg is implanted and develops outside the uterine cavity. Normally a fertilized egg implants the uterine wall. Ectopic pregnancy occurs most frequently in the fallopian tubes, which are channels that connect the ovaries to the uterus. Sometimes ectopic pregnancy can also occur in the ovaries, abdominal cavity, or lower uterus.
Ectopic pregnancy can be treated through several methods, including:
1. Methotrexate, which can function to absorb the pregnancy tissue so that the fallopian tubes can be maintained depending on how far the pregnancy has developed.
2. If the fallopian tubes have been stretched or have ruptured and there is bleeding, then the bleeding must be treated immediately through surgical procedures. Laparoscopic surgery is one method for handling ectopic pregnancy. In this method using a kind of binoculars into the abdominal cavity to lift or repair the damaged fallopian tubes. The advantage of this method is the small surgical scar so that recovery will be faster.
3. If the tubal damage that occurs is quite severe then the laparotomy surgery method is needed by making an incision in the abdomen that is almost similar to the caesarean section.
Related to the costs, of course, will vary at each center and also depends on the type of health insurance you use. The duration of recovery depends on the severity and method of surgery being undertaken. If the old laparotomy method recovery will be longer.
If there are complaints of bleeding during the ectopic pregnancy treatment measures have not been taken, then you should avoid sexual intercourse in advance to minimize the risk of more severe bleeding and increased pain.
That's all, hope you can help
