Report by reader and friend Amanda who, in a fright, discovered that she had an ectopic pregnancy even after she thought she had suffered an abortion. For those who do not know, ectopic pregnancy is pregnancy in the tube, in a normal pregnancy the baby is fixed in the uterus, in ectopic pregnancy the baby is fixed in the tube and can cause withdrawal by infection. Pay attention to her girls report, understanding the symptoms of ectopic pregnancy is essential and can help save the compromised tube.
Beginning of History
“I have been“ tempting ”since July last year, last month I discovered my pregnancy, until then I felt that something was wrong, I had bleeding bleeding and when I performed my second beta the numbers had dropped.
My gynecologist did trans and saw that I had no gestational sac and that I had lost the baby. At the time of trans I felt pain when examining the left ovary, but go said that my tube was clean and that I already had an 11mm follicle in that same ovary.
Since then I had been experiencing severe pains that I thought were gas and I always took Buscopan and the pain was gone, only this pain was intensifying, it was very strong and sudden. I started to vomit, the pressure dropped, it was terrifying …
Last Tuesday (05/20) it was my mother’s birthday and I ate a seafood dish, on Wednesday I was very ill with the pains and Buscopan didn’t help. I went to the emergency room and when I got there I did an ultrasound that didn’t detect anything but gases and right after a CT scan that diagnosed the appendix and I was hospitalized and went to the operating room to operate and remove the appendix.
My surgery was by video and when starting the doctor saw that my appendix was fine, reverting the procedure to a search procedure, where he would go after to see what was causing my severe pain.
That’s when he found an embryo in my left horn! Unfortunately there was no way to preserve my horn and it was removed. I’m still digesting all this, it’s a huge shock, especially for those who have been trying to get pregnant and it’s a situation I never imagined going through.
I never suspected that it could be an ectopic pregnancy and I never got to research about it. Today I see that if I had understood the subject, I would have killed the riddle at the time, because all I had been feeling were clear symptoms of ectopic pregnancy.
I haven’t been to go yet, I don’t intend to go back to mine, because I think he was negligent about letting this go and not investigating my complaints , I appointed a specialist in human reproduction for 06/05, I’m still very lost, not knowing for sure my chances when I can try again.
I just know that it will be necessary to examine my other tube and I also know that if this happened in the left tube it is because it already had some kind of obstruction, so the doctor informed me, he also said that he will investigate my other tube to see if everything is ok.
Here is my warning to all of you so that you are always attentive to your body and that you do not underestimate the signs that our bodies give and if the doctor (whoever he is) says that everything is fine and you feel that you are not, look for another doctor and another and another and another, until he discovered the real reason for the symptoms.
Symptoms of Ectopic Pregnancy
My symptoms of ectopic pregnancy:
- Coffee grounds very thin and little, with the same water texture.
- Abdominal pain VERY strong, I couldn’t identify the pain, whether it was gas or cramps, it was a mixture. Many women report localized pain on one side only, but mine was all over the abdomen and after taking medication she was at the bottom of my belly, it hurt when I sat down, when I got up, when I pee (I even thought I had some bladder infection) when stepping on the floor! Detail that the pain only started to appear I was already 5 weeks old (theoretically)
- I also felt a sting in the anus, like a stab, a fine pain coming in from behind.
- The pain came suddenly and was overwhelming, it was already making me feel very sick with vomiting and my belly was bulging, which made me think it was gas and self-medicating taking Buscopan.
After finding out what was really happening to me, the doctor explained to me that as there was an infection in my abdomen, my intestinal loops came off causing my intestines to stop working and producing a lot of gases, I had an abdominal distension.
Therefore, we women must always be on the alert for ANYTHING, ANY PAIN, ANY SIGN THAT HAS SOMETHING DIFFERENT HAPPENING .
Do not ever do what I did, stay at home thinking it is bullshit and that it will pass, our body shows signs (in the plural), we sometimes are not aware and do not connect one thing to another. If my doctor had done his part properly and if I had also gone after it, maybe I would have been able to preserve my horn. ”
My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
