The possibility of pregnancy outside the uterus (ectopic) occurred in 7 of 1000 pregnancies. What are the causes of pregnancy outside the womb and handling what is right?
Bleeding in the first trimester of pregnancy can occur in a pregnancy outside the uterus (ectopic). This condition is a result of the fertilized egg does not get in and implanted in the uterus, but are outside the womb. Here are mothers at risk of pregnancy outside the womb:
Women aged 35-45 years, had been pregnant outside the uterus.
Women who had surgery oviduct.
Women who had repeat abortions
Women who have had infertility problems or medication to stimulate the release of an egg from the ovary.
Women who suffer penggul infection or suffering from TB (tuberculosis).
The cause of this pregnancy a wide range, but is often the case the cause is an infection in the fallopian tubes or never conduct operations outside the womb before, said Dr. Tjahaya PU SpOG Kes, Special Obstetrics and Gynecology, RSIA Pearl Princess.
Ectopic pregnancy, the fetus can not develop like a fetus in the womb, so that pregnancy can not be maintained. Complications that can occur, root canal lining the placenta attaches the egg and cause bleeding-small then regardless of spontaneous bleeding. Furthermore, tissue remnants out spontaneously often called tubal abortion (tubal abortion). Placental roots penetrate the layers of the fallopian tubes and lead to rupture of blood vessels with the impact is severe bleeding that can cause death.
No symptoms or signs that are typical of this ectopic pregnancy. At first women will feel the same way with the other normal pregnancy. Symptoms occur when there has been a significant bleeding in the abdominal wall.
The symptoms are pain in the pelvic area or abdomen, bleeding from the genitals, fainting or dizzy outlook due to lack of blood. That is why, it is important for the early detection of ectopic pregnancy in early pregnancy.
Women who have had an ectopic pregnancy can become pregnant again, only to have the risk of ectopic pregnancy by repeated three times higher than women without a history. And if the fallopian tubes are still good, it is likely to still exist.
