Blogging from A to Z Challenge: E is for Ectopic Pregnancy

Blogging from A to Z April 2017 Challenge

For the first time, I’m participating in the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge! The concept is simple: Each day in April I’ll be blogging on a topic  starting with the letter of the day, beginning with A and progressing to Z by the end of the month. Posts will be short and will relate to my chosen theme: my new coming of age story, Rightfully Ours, released April 1.


E bloggingE is for Ectopic Pregnancy

I’m no stranger to pregnancy complication and loss, having experienced pre-eclampsia, intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP), and multiple miscarriages, but I’ve not experienced an ectopic pregnancy. In Rightfully Ours, one of the characters reveals that a loved one was lost due to this pregnancy complication.

In an ectopic pregnancy, the baby begins to develop inside the fallopian tube rather than in the uterus. This can cause the tube to rupture, which is fatal for the baby in its embryonic stage, but also poses a danger to the mother. The tube’s rupture can cause heavy internal bleeding and may lead to shock.

While ectopic pregnancies cannot be prevented, it’s worth noting that certain factors can increase a woman’s risk of experiencing an ectopic pregnancy, including the use of intrauterine devices (IUDs).

Whatever the cause of pregnancy loss, grief is a natural and normal part of the process. My sympathy and prayers go to those who have lost their precious little ones.

  1. I have heard of this and one of my relatives had this complication… This can cause that fallopian tube to be removed itself if i am not wrong and they would have to depend solely on the other tube right?

  2. A friend had an ectopic pregnancy and survived it only because she had a dinner date with a friend, who arrived at her apartment and found her passed out on the floor. She was okay, but couldn’t get pregnant despite many tries, and eventually adopted a baby boy. A happy ending.
