Pregnant Fallopian Ectopic Twins Are Both Fertilized?
Sya forgot to mention again, what if a twin fetus with an ectopic pregnancy, fallopian tubes on one side is also fertilized? Is it only one side if it’s ectopic? Because I forgot where the file is
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First, I want to confirm the purpose of your question. Do you mean that you have a history of ectopic pregnancy with a twin fetus that has been operated on but you do not remember whether an ectopic pregnancy occurred in the right or left fallopian tubes and do not remember whether your right or left fallopian tubes were operated on?
There are two types of pregnancy for twins, fraternal (or dizygotic) twins and identical (or monozygotic) twins. Monozygotic twins occur because 1 egg is fertilized by 1 sperm and divides to form 2 fetuses. In this condition, the ovary only releases 1 egg (ovum) from one side of the ovary (it can be right or left). Dizygotic twins occur because 2 eggs are produced at the same time and each egg is fertilized by sperm. Both of these eggs can be produced by one ovary, it can also be produced by both ovaries at the same time. When produced by 1 ovary, ectopic pregnancy can occur on one side of the ovary only, but if it is produced by both ovaries, ectopic pregnancy can occur on both sides of the fallopian tube.
You also need to know, ectopic pregnancy does not always occur in the fallopian tube but can also be in other places, for example in the ovary, peritoneal, abdominal, cervical, etc.
To find out exactly the location of your ectopic pregnancy beforehand, you should do an examination directly to the obstetrician. It would be better if you ask the obstetrician who previously handled you or the obstetrician who worked at the same hospital where you were operated on so that you can clearly see the history of your surgery on your medical records at the hospital.
