Hi

Hi, I am 5 weeks pregnant, about 6 years ago I was treated for clamydia and since then have had a dull ache like pain in my right side, now and again, more intense at the start of my period. I am now having the same feeling and also twinges on the left hand side. I am terrified I m having an ectopic pregnancy but also know I am making things worse reading google. Any advice would be really appreciated :)

I conceived after 3 years of my marriage. i had a problem of delayed periods at that time. after 70 days of delaying i was not pregnant according to ultrasound report. my dr advised me to take duphaston . 3 days after taking this medicine pregnancy test became positive. after a week the pregnancy expired and i went through ENC. Lab test of sample of pregnancy reported decuida of pregnancy but no chorionic villi in the whole sample. some dr says that this report doesnt indicate pregnancy. is it true?

doctor1 MD

Hello Tabinda,

Thanks for posting,
Well your situation is awkward as even in most abnormal pregnancies like molar pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy, early pregnancy failure etc you can always find chorionic villi on histology. My only possible explanation to this situation is early pregnancy failure...

i have been having lower abdominal pain for thhe past 2 months on and off, since the pain i have had one normal period and the second came a week early and that is not normal for me as i have never had an irregular period a week after the early period i started finding blood in my underwear that went on for about a week or so my next period is due in just under a week my gp thinks it could be ectopic pregnancy but i had a home preg test and it said negative??

doctor1 MD

HI,
Thanks for asking. I understand your concern.
There are several causes which can lead to your symptoms... which need to be investigated for.I don't think possibility of fruitful pregnancy this time.
I feel you should get USG abdomen done to start with.. this will exclude.. ectopic pregnancy/...

my scan shows small haemorrhage adjacent to gestational sac measuring 9 x 6mm, free fluid in POD measuring 43 x 16mm. then assessment of early pregnancy is pregnancy site within intrauterine cavity, gestational sac size is 9.0 mm x 5.0 mm x 9.0mm and mean is 7.7mm. my pregnancy is 4 weeks and they said my hormone level is very high. what does all thses mean?

doctor1 MD

Hi,
Thanks for writing in.

With a gestational sac age corresponding to 4 weeks, there seems to be a small hemorrhage (location not mentioned) - most likely a sub chorionic hemorrhage. This is due to minimal blood collection occurring due to separation between membranes during embryonic...
