After a miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy it typically takes a woman 6-7 weeks to begin menstruating again. Some women will menstruate just like normal, right on schedule, but others will take longer. If you haven't gotten your period back by 8 weeks, I would call your OBGYN for a checkup.

What and how is ectopic pregnancy happen?

An ectopic pregnancy is when the fertilised egg attaches itself outside the uterus. The most common place where the ectopic pregnancy occurs is the fallopian tubes. Other possible areas where the ectopic could occur are the ovaries, abdomen and the cervix. The cause for ectopic pregnancy is mostly unknown. However endometriosis, any surgery to the abdomen, previous pelvic inflammatory disease all increase the chances of an ectopic pregnancy.

How do you get rid of an ectopic pregnancy?

Well there are usually a small handful of possibilities that comes to treating an ectopic pregnancy. One, the ectopic pregnancy dies and the mothers body reabsorbs the egg and at times is never even detected and the woman might have never even known she was pregnant. If you encountered a positive pregnancy test then a later did another one and it came back negative, that could have been a possibility that it was an ectopic pregnancy. Or the other possibility with an ectopic pregnancy is that the tube that is holding the ectopic pregnancy may rupture causing severe abdominal pain and may cause extreme complications and surgery may be needed. If the ectopic pregnancy is detected by a physician, then he/she may prescribe a drug called methotrexate, which is injected into a muscles and ends the pregnancy. If the embryo is small enough doctors can remove the embryo through laparoscopic surgery and can usually save the tube. In this situation, a general anesthetic will be used and you will need to take about a week to recover. * * * You will most likely have to undergo minor surgery to remove the ectopic pregnancy or you can be prescribed medication that will end the pregnancy.

What is the cure for an ectopic pregnancy?

Ectopic TreatmentsIf the mother is well and stable, the pregnancy could be absorbed gradually. Ectopic can be treated medically with a drug called methotrexate which will shrink the pregnancy in the tube. Medication is done only if the pregnancy is in its early stage. The laparoscopic method is the other method where the pregnancy or the tube itself is removed.Usually people prefer to remove the fallopian tube to avoid further ectopic pregnancy. The last method is the common open surgery. The risks involved in surgery and medication of ectopic pregnancy is that there are chances that the fertilized egg gets ruptured inside the tube which leads to vaginal bleeding and should be treated immediately. Thus prevention is the best cure for ectopic pregnancy.

What is done when you have a ectopic pregnancy?

The treatment for an ectopic pregnancy depend on the variables of each case (size of woman, stage of pregnancy etc.). If the pregnancy is noticed soon enough, the patient can be treated with methotrexate, which stops the growth of the fetus. But if the pregnancy is further along, the patient might need surgery to safely remove the embryo. It might be a large or small procedure depending upon how large the embryo has grown. Laparoscopy is a smaller procedure that can be done if the ectopic pregnancy is caught soon enough.

What are some of the signs of being pregnant in the fallopian tube?

Ectopic pregnancy An ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilized egg attaches somewhere other than in the uterus, usually in a fallopian tube (tubal pregnancy). Because an ectopic pregnancy can cause life-threatening complications, the pregnancy must be ended with medicine or surgery. When a fertilized egg attaches to a fallopian tube, it can be dangerous because the pregnancy can break into blood vessels. If a tubal pregnancy is not detected and treated early, the blood vessels may burst. This can be a life-threatening situation and requires emergency surgery. Pelvic inflammatory disease or tubal surgery increases the risk of having an ectopic or tubal pregnancy by creating scar tissue that may block the fallopian tube. Ectopic Pregnancy - Symptoms An early ectopic pregnancy often feels like a normal pregnancy. A woman with an ectopic pregnancy may experience common signs of early pregnancy, such as: A missed menstrual period. Tender breasts. Fatigue. Nausea. Increased urination. As an ectopic pregnancy progresses, however, other symptoms develop, including: Abdominal or pelvic pain, usually 6 to 8 weeks after a missed period.4 Pain may get worse with movement or straining. It may occur sharply on one side at first and then spread throughout the pelvic region. Vaginal bleeding that may be light or heavy. Pain with intercourse or during a pelvic exam. Dizziness, lightheadedness, or fainting (syncope) caused by internal bleeding. Signs of shock. Shoulder pain caused by bleeding into the abdomen under the diaphragm. The bleeding irritates the diaphragm and is experienced as shoulder pain. Source:

Can you have severe menstrual cramps after ectopic surgery?


What is an ectopic pregnancy and how can it happen?

An ectopic pregnancy is when the embryo plants itself anywhere other than the uterus, most commonly in the fallopian tube. The egg does not make its way through the fallopian tube, so it is implanted and stationary at this point. The most common reasons for this are: scar tissue, previous ectopic pregnancy(ies), use of IUD, and others. I just had surgery for an ectopic, so what I've given you is just information I've received from my doctors and what I've read online. Hope this helps.

Can a person become pregnant with twins after tubal ligation?

Pregnancy after tubal ligation is very rare. Tubal ligation has less than a 2% failure rate and even if you do get pregnant without reversal surgery you are more likely to have an ectopic pregnancy. Ectopic pregnancy is very dangerous and you should see a Dr immediately if you feel that you may be pregnant.

Can you get pregnant still if your tubes are tied and burned by having the sperm put into her ovaries?

No, that would cause an ectopic pregnancy if she happened to be ovulating - aside from needing surgery to access the ovaries.

In the human female is there another organ for a baby to exit?

No, there is no other organ except through the vagina. However the infant can begin to develop in odd places that are not part of the reproductive system. In an ectopic pregnancy, the fertilized egg implants in a location outside the uterus and tries to develop there. The word ectopic means "in an abnormal place or position." The most common site is the fallopian tube, the tube that normally carries eggs from the ovary to the uterus. However, ectopic pregnancy can also occur in the ovary, the abdomen, and the cervical canal (the opening from the uterus to the vaginal canal). The phrases tubal pregnancy, ovarian pregnancy, cervical pregnancy, and abdominal pregnancy refer to the specific area of an ectopic pregnancy. More than 95% percent of all ectopic pregnancies occur in the fallopian tube. Only 1.5% develop in the abdomen; less than 1% develop in the ovary or the cervix. Ectopic pregnancy was first described in the eleventh century and was a potentially fatal condition until the advent of surgery and blood transfusions in the early twentieth century.

How can you know if you have an ectopic pregnancy without going to the doctors?

You can`t. The doctor needs to give you a blood test to test for HCG in your system. Then if there is no fetal sac on an ultrasound (about 6 weeks pregnant or 2 weeks after your missed period), but your HCG is high it is an ectopic. They will either give you several shots (injections) or you will need surgery (most likely you will loose a tube). Ectopic pregnancy is very serious and often leads to emergency surgery or even the death of the mother (5 women a year in the UK) if not not discovered soon enough.

When do you notice a etopic pregnancy?

It is rather difficult to notice an ectopic pregnancy, however you may suspect in these circumstances: Positive pregnancy test, abdominal pain and discomfort, vaginal bleeding. Previous history of EP, salpingitis, tubal surgery or intrauterine devices for contraception is predisposing factors. Ultimate diagnosis is made by measuring of bHCG to confirm pregnancy and by intravaginal ultrasonography. Ectopic pregnancy can be a life threatening situation and must be diagnosed early or else there is a risk for maternal death.
