Ectopic pregnancy

In normal case of pregnancy the fertilized egg is implanted in the uterus. But if the egg meets with the sperm outside uterus it is called ectopic pregnancy. The fertilized egg moves into the uterus to get implanted after fertilization. In one out of 50 pregnancies it happens. It can happen in the abdomen, cornua, or even cervix. It usually occurs in first week of pregnancy. It can scary and sad as well.


There can be a number of causes for ectopic pregnancy. Few causes are discussed below.

  • Intrauterine device:- Intrauterine devices for birth control can be one of the most important factors for causing ectopic pregnancy as these devices prevent implantation of the fertilized egg in the uterus.
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease:- It is a disease condition in which there is inflammation in the pelvic cavity. The inflammation can lead to the blockage of the path to uterus.
  • Sexually transmitted disease:- STD caused by Chlamydia and gonorrhea can lead also leads to blockage of the track to the uterus.
  • Congenital anomaly:- Any defect in the fallopian tube due to any congenital anomaly can also ectopic pregnancy.

When the diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy is confirmed then the patients is immediately taken for emergency treatment as there are chances of ectopic burst. If the tube is not ruptured and pregnancy is in the initial stages then laparoscopic treatment can be the choice of treatment.
