Ectopic pregnancy is usually caused by factors that obstruct or delay the passage of the fertilized egg or embryo through the fallopian tubes, such as:

•A previous ectopic pregnancy
•Adhesions caused by previous pelvic surgery (appendectomy, colon •surgery, etc.) or infectious processes (pelvic inflammatory disease)
•Fallopian tube surgeries, such as tubal ligation reversal
•Chlamydia or other recurrent cervical-vaginal infections
•Congenital defects of the fallopian tubes
•Use of intrauterine devices


•Abnormal vaginal bleeding
•Lower abdominal pain
•Lower back pain
•Feeling of nausea and fatigue

As it progresses, ectopic pregnancy can lead to the rupture of one of the fallopian tubes, with symptoms

•Faint feeling
•Sharp pain in the lower abdomen or even in the shoulders and neck
•Intense pressure in the rectum
•Dark vaginal bleeding
A blood test can measure the levels of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) and progesterone.
A transvaginal ultrasound or vaginal ultrasound, on the other hand, is also a recommended alternative.

Can I have a baby if I had an ectopic pregnancy?

Unfortunately, ectopic pregnancies cannot be carried to term because they make it impossible for the embryo to survive and can affect the mother's health, so it is necessary to remove the developing cells as soon as possible.

If the fallopian tubes are damaged or have to be removed, In Vitro fertilization (IVF) is the treatment of choice to have a baby.
