Ectopic Pregnancy Symptoms – Signs to Look Out For

Ectopic Pregnancy SymptomsThis article covers important information regarding ectopic pregnancy symptoms. First up, the terminology ectopic simply means something that is out of place. Usually, in a standard pregnancy the egg gets fertilized and plants itself to develop inside the uterus. In the majority of ectopic pregnancies however, the egg settles down inside the fallopian tubes of the woman. Hence, the common referral to ectopic pregnancies as tubal pregnancies. Sometimes the eggs can implant itself to the lady’s abdomen- or inside the cervical walls. Of course, this is not the proper place for a pregnancy to develop, and because of this as the foetus gets larger it will end up causing a ruption of the organ that has the pregnancy inside. It will result in very severe bleeding and even death. A substandard ectopic pregnancy will never get beyond the point that it will develop into a live foetus though.

Some of the pregnancy symptoms and signs of a lady carrying an ectopic pregnancy are very similar to ladies who have a normal pregnancy developing inside their womb. That is why it can be often pushed to the side and is not picked up on until later in the development. Some of the symptoms are the lady having sore breasts, a period that does not come on time, the feeling of sickness. Physically being sick, feeling tired, and having to go to the bathroom a lot. Usually the first signs that a woman will experience are that she has very painful abdominal area, and bleeding from the vagina. Sometimes this can be accompanied by pelvic pain, stomach cramping, neck and shoulder pain, although this is a less common sign, it can happen if the area that has ruptured travels to irritate nerves in the lady. Sometimes the pain that the lady gets is very tolerable, then it turns into an unbearable pain, almost like someone is stabbing them with a knife. Usually an ectopic pregnancy focuses on the pelvic side.

Other ectopic pregnancy symptoms are spotting of blood. The woman can faint and be dizzy, because of the internal blood loss, very low pressure because of the blood loss, and a very bad pain in the lower back. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, then it is very important to make sure that you go to seek medical advice as soon as you pick up on them because the earlier you go to visit the doctor, the sooner this condition can be diagnosed, or ruled out. Ectopic pregnancy can be life-threatening and, it’s not something to play around with and wait with because you are not sure.
