Ectopic Pregnancy - A Better Understanding: Ectopic Pregnancy - A Better Understanding By David Brewer   PowerPoint Presentation: The dictionary definition of the word 'Ectopic' is an organ or body part existing in an unusual position or form. In simple terms, an ectopic pregnancy is a pregnancy, which is developing in the wrong place. An ectopic pregnancy occurs when the fertilized egg (or ovum) fails to move down the fallopian tube and into the womb (or uterus) in the normal manner. PowerPoint Presentation: Instead, the egg or ovum implants itself outside of the womb. Most often, (in 95% of cases), ectopic pregnancies develop in a fallopian tube and rarely, elsewhere in the abdominal cavity or pelvic area. What Causes An Ectopic Pregnancy?: What Causes An Ectopic Pregnancy? Sometimes the ovum fails to implant itself and it becomes fertilized outside of the reproductive system. More commonly, the fertilized ovum is trapped, in the fallopian tube and the baby continues to grow inside the tube where it can cause the tube to burst or otherwise severely damage it. A burst tube is life threatening and requires urgent medical attention. PowerPoint Presentation: In many cases, ectopic pregnancies occur when the expectant mother has damaged fallopian tube(s). Tubes damaged, by infections such as pelvic inflammatory disease or by previous surgery, scar tissue, endometriosis or previous ectopic pregnancies are a high-risk factor, which significantly, increase the likelihood of a pregnancy being ectopic. What Are The Warning Signs Of An Ectopic Pregnancy?: What Are The Warning Signs Of An Ectopic Pregnancy? Pain In the Abdomen Pain in the Shoulder Pain Using the Lavatory Other Warning Signs Vaginal bleeding or unusual periods Sickness Diarrhoea Pallid complexion (paleness) Light-headedness Collapse Increasing pulse rate Falling blood pressures
