Ectopic pregnancies refer to pregnancies in which the egg is fertilized outside your womb so the foetus begins to develop in your ovary or in your fallopian tube.
This can be very dangerous not only for the foetus but also for you. If surgery is not performed, the tubes could burst and result in internal bleeding and in some cases, even death.
Sometimes your cervix can open causing heavy bleeding with intense cramping pains.
Other times, your baby can die in early pregnancy. When this happens, you can either wait for a miscarriage to occur.
There are many different complications during pregnancy that can cause this to happen such as blood clotting, infection, structural problems, or lifestyle choices such as smoking, alcohol or high caffeine intake.
You may be considered high risk if you are carrying multiple babies, have a long term illness such as diabetes, or are over the age of 35.
If you are high risk, you may be asked to visit your obstetrician more regularly as your pregnancy will need to be more closely monitored than usual.
The chances of your child bearing birth defects are significantly higher than someone who is under 30 and miscarriages also become more common in the first trimester of older pregnant women.
If you're over 35, there will also be an increased risk of diabetes and high blood pressure.
Don't worry, as with today's technology, almost all these complications can be treated as long as they are spotted early on.
