How to become pregnant after an ectopic pregnancy
Ectopic pregnancy is a term that causes chills in any woman. The phenomenon, potentially dangerous to life, is often painful, very mysterious, and through it causes a lot of discussions, discussions and disputes. Often they end with the conclusion that after it the next conception does not come, or proceeds with complications. But is it? Definitely not so! In the overwhelming majority of cases, a diagnosed ectopic pregnancy does not lead to infertility. After a while, a woman can become pregnant and have more children. To understand this phenomenon, you need to understand the root of the problem.
Already from the very name of the pathology it becomes clear that this is a condition where a fertilized egg is attached outside the uterus. It can be in the fallopian tube or in the cervix. As the fertilized egg grows, it damages other organs of the mother and can lead to severe bleeding, even death. Contrary to all the myths about ectopic pregnancy – it is impossible to save it. Fertilized ovules do not survive. For a woman, the situation is safer and with the timely diagnosis of the phenomenon, the childbearing function of the body remains.
A woman can learn about pregnancy outside the uterus at a period of about 6-9 weeks (the first two months). After the pathology is detected, the problem should be treated as soon as possible. If the diagnosis is made early enough, surgical intervention will be minimized and there is every chance of complete resumption of pelvic organs. The operation to remove the fetal egg is called a laparotomy. Modern methods of laparoscopic access provide only small incisions on the abdominal cavity, cosmetic defects from which are practically not noticeable. The fetal egg is removed early from the tube without damage, its functions are restored and re-conception becomes real within a month. Feedback about this procedure is positive and more and more doctors are trying to resort to this type of intervention. Healing of wounds occurs for a month or less.
In the event that the pregnancy is already broken or the tube is damaged, the patient needs an urgent operation. Sometimes a damaged fallopian tube can be restored, but more often removal is required.
