Pregnancy is the best phase in any woman and every woman craves for a normal pregnancy along with a healthy baby. What happens when any complications arise? Who takes responsibility for pregnancy complications? At times, even doctors get confused with the typical pregnancy complications. Very few people know about complications like ectopic pregnancy but once this happens things get worse than ever.
In early ectopic pregnancy women often feels like a normal pregnancy. A woman with an ectopic pregnancy may face some common signs of early pregnancy, such as:
A missed menstrual period
First signs of an ectopic pregnancy may include:
Abdominal (belly) pain or pelvic pain, usually 6 to 8 weeks after a missed period
Vaginal bleeding, which may be light
As an ectopic pregnancy progresses, though, other symptoms may develop, including:
Heavy or severe vaginal bleeding
Belly pain or pelvic pain that may get worse with movement or straining. It may occur sharply on one side at first and then spread throughout the pelvic region.
Dizziness, lightheadedness, or fainting (syncope) caused by internal bleeding.
Pain during intercourse or during a pelvic exam.
Shoulder pain caused by bleeding into the abdomen under the diaphragm.
Symptoms of miscarriage are sometimes similar to symptoms faced in early ectopic pregnancy.
