How to establish the signs and symptoms of ectopic pregnancy, a rather common complication? After all, the earlier the situation is determined, the safer will be treated.
It is likely that, after fertilization, the egg will attach for its development not to the wall of the uterus, but to the sheath of the fallopian tube or even settle in the abdominal cavity. At the same time, she will still begin to release hCG, a pregnancy hormone that causes the same symptoms as the most common pregnancy:
It seems that everything is fine, and the woman calmly rejoices in her new state.
In the event that an ectopic pregnancy has begun to develop not a normal one, the signs in the early stages can be noted as follows:

The earlier an ectopic pregnancy is diagnosed, the easier it will be for doctors to deal with its consequences, which can be very serious.
It often happens that the situation resolves itself - the egg is removed from the fallopian tube into the abdominal cavity, and this is also not very pleasant. If it continues to develop within the pipe, gradually fill its lumen and lead to rupture of the shell. Released blood with mucus and ovum enters the space of the abdominal cavity, and there is peritonitis, internal bleeding and severe, completely unbearable pain. Cope with this situation already in intensive care.
Previously, an ectopic pregnancy was treated in the only way - removal of the uterus. Modern technologies make it possible to penetrate the abdominal cavity using laparoscopy and remove the wrong egg or the entire tube if it cannot be maintained.The possibility of re-pregnancy in a woman while being saved.
Of course, getting into the hospital at the earliest stage will allow the intervention with minimal damage, so it is extremely important to notice the first signs of an ectopic pregnancy and immediately go to the hospital. Ectopic pregnancy is observed in 1% of women, so this risk is worth remembering.
