Best Ectopic Pregnancy specialist doctor in Baner Pune : Dr. Asmita Dongare

What is an ectopic pregnancy?

In a normal pregnancy, a fertilized egg travels through a fallopian tube to the uterus. The egg attaches to the uterus and starts to grow. But in an ectopic pregnancy, the fertilized egg attaches (or implants) someplace other than the uterus, most often in the fallopian tube. Dr. Asmita Dongare is best ectopic pregnancy specialist doctor in Pune Baner. 

There is no way to save an ectopic pregnancy. It cannot turn into a normal pregnancy. If the egg keeps growing in the fallopian tube, it can damage or burst the tube and cause heavy bleeding that could be deadly. If you have an ectopic pregnancy, you will need quick treatment to end it before it causes dangerous problems.

What are the symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy?

  • Missed Period
  • Vaginal bleeding.
  • Pain in your lower abdomen, pelvis, and lower back.

  • Shoulder pain.
  • Rectal pressure.

How is an ectopic pregnancy diagnosed?

An ectopic pregnancy is typically diagnosed during a regular pregnancy checkup. Also, Some tests can be performed

  • A urine test
  • A blood test: Gynecologist may test your blood to see how much of the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) you have in your body.
  • An ultrasound exam: Ultrasound is often used during pregnancy. Your provider will use this test to see where the fertilized egg has been implanted.

How it is treated?

The most common treatments are medical and surgical methods. In most cases, a gynecologist will treat an ectopic pregnancy right away to prevent harm to the woman.

Medicine can be used if the pregnancy is found early before the tube is damaged. In most cases, one or more shots of a medicine called methotrexate will end the pregnancy. Taking the shot lets you avoid surgery, but it can cause side effects.
