Hazards And Treatment For Ectopic Pregnancy?
I was pregnant about 2 months ago ultrasound said it turned out that my uterus had a cyst 6×5 cm in the ovary then the doctor found my uterus was open but it was smaller than the ultrasound which was now small to be about 1 cm and almost miscarried but still could be maintained because of the way out closed, and the doctor did not find the fetus in the womb after seeing the fetus is outside the uterus, is that dangerous? Then what should I do with the uterus outside the womb? Will I be cured? If in curette does it hurt then what if I get pregnant again will experience it again? Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The condition that you have is called a pregnancy outside the womb or an ectopic pregnancy. Basically, a fetus formed during conception must be implanted in the uterus to develop properly, if the fetus is embedded in another place (for example in the fallopian tube, ovary, or in the abdominal cavity), then the fetus will definitely not be able to be maintained anymore and must issued immediately. If the fetus is left enlarged, the organ where the fetus is implanted / implanted can rupture and the condition is very very dangerous for you.
The management for an ectopic pregnancy is very dependent on where the fetus is implanted and how big the fetus is developing. If it is still small and no specific complications have occurred, the doctor may suggest injecting a drug to prevent fetal development and remove the remaining tissue. If drug administration is not possible, then the other recommended treatment is laparoscopic surgery (surgery with a small incision in the abdomen) to take the fetus where it is embedded. If the fetus is embedded in the fallopian tube for example, it needs to be re-examined whether the fallopian tube is heavily damaged or not, if it is severely damaged, then the fallopian tube must also be removed. If complications (such as a fallopian tube rupture) or heavy bleeding in the abdominal cavity, then laparotomy surgery (surgery with a large incision) must be done.
If you have not consulted an obstetrician, you should immediately consult your condition to an obstetrician. If you have consulted an obstetrician, then follow the advice of your obstetrician regarding the management of your ectopic pregnancy. It is better if the examination and treatment are not delayed because these conditions can be dangerous if left unchecked.
A woman who has a history of ectopic pregnancy does have a greater risk of having an ectopic pregnancy again. Even so, normal pregnancy is still possible. Also discuss with your obstetrician about the prognosis of your pregnancy going forward as this also depends very much on your current ectopic pregnancy.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
