Tubal pregnancy is when a fertilised egg becomes implanted in the fallopian tubes instead of the uterus. This can happen to anyone, even those who have never had any surgery to their tubes before. If you think you may have a tubal pregnancy, it is important to see a doctor right away as it can be dangerous.
There are several symptoms of tubal or ectopic pregnancy, including:
– abdominal pain
– vaginal bleeding
– nausea and vomiting
– increased urination
– dizziness or lightheadedness
If you experience any of these symptoms in early pregnancy, it is important to see a doctor right away. Early pregnancies arising in the fallopian tubes can be dangerous and even life-threatening if they are not treated.
For many women, it can be frightening and confusing to experience the symptoms of an ectopic. This article will provide information on pregnancies that occur in the tubes and what to do if you think you may have one. It will also answer questions such as:
- Can you have a tubal pregnancy if your tubes are not tied?
- Can you have a tubal pregnancy if your tubes are tied?
- And is a tubal pregnancy possible after tubal ligation?
Can You Have an Ectopic Pregnancy if Your Tubes Are Not Tied?
Yes, pregnancies within the fallopian tubes can still occur even if your tubes are not tied. Ectopic pregnancies can be caused by several different factors such as previous infection and scar tissue from previous surgery or endometriosis. It is important to see a doctor if you experience any symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy as it can be dangerous and even life threatening if not treated properly.
Can You Have a Pregnancy Outside Of Your Uterus If Your Tubes Are Tied?
Yes, these types of pregnancies are still possible even if your tubes are tied. The tubal ligation (sterilisation) procedure is not 100% effective in preventing fallopian tube pregnancies since the tube may become reconnected over time. It is important to see a doctor if you experience any symptoms of tubal pregnancy as it can be dangerous and even life threatening if not treated promptly.
Is a Pregnancy In Your Tubes Possible After Tubal Ligation?
Yes, ectopic pregnancies are possible after tubal ligation. This is a small risk following reversal surgery (around 6% or 1 in 20) but is slightly higher than if you had never had tubal surgery before. It occurs when the fertilised egg, travelling along the fallopian tube doesn’t move forward into the womb and instead starts to implant and develop in the tube rather than the womb cavity.
A tubal or ectopic pregnancy is a serious condition that can be dangerous and even life-threatening if not treated promptly. It is important to contact a doctor right away if you think you are pregnant and experience any symptoms of tubal pregnancy.
Knowing the facts about these types of pregnancies can help you seek prompt medical attention in order to treat or prevent pregnancies in your tubes occurring.
