“Ectopic Pregnancy can become life-threating without treatment. Seek help from a Dr. Surakshith; a specialist who has the experience and proficiency to successfully remove ectopic tissue”
As pregnancy begins when the fertilized egg attaches to the lining of the uterus, an ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilized eggattaches itself in a place other than inside the uterus. It normally occurs in a fallopian tube (it carries eggs from the ovaries to the uterus). Given that the fallopian tubes are actually not designed to hold a growing embryo, this means that the fertilized egg cannot develop properly and it becomes extremely important to have a proper treatment.
When You Should Consult With Dr. Surakshith
If left untreated for too long, an ectopic pregnancy may lead to fallopian tube rupture and a patient could experience extreme pain with or without bleeding and there is a possibility of internal bleeding as well. You should seek immediate advice from Dr. Surakshith if you start noticing the following symptoms:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Sharp abdominal pain with or without vaginal spotting
- Dizziness or weakness
- Light vaginal bleeding and pelvic pain
- Pain in rectum, shoulder, and neck
Causes of Ectopic Pregnancy
There can be one of many causes behind ectopic pregnancy, some of them are:
- An infection or inflammation of the fallopian tube
- Use of fertility drugs
- Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
- Scarring from previously done pelvic surgeries
- Unsuccessful tubal ligation
Why Choose Dr. Surakshith?
As fertilized egg can’t survive outside of the uterus, it becomes extremely important to remove the tissue to keep you from having serious complications. Dr. Surakshith will check to see if your pregnancy hasn’t progressed a lot and the fallopian tube hasn’t ruptured, if it is the case then medication is sufficient. However, there are cases in which surgery becomes the only option in ectopic pregnancy and that’s when laparoscopy is the most commonly used procedure. By using his valuable experience gained from performing numerous successful surgeries, he will try to conserve the fallopian tube during surgery by performing salpingostomy (removing the ectopic gestation alone) instead of salpingectomy (completely removing the tube).
