Managing Early Pregnancy Problems
Sometimes pregnancies don’t quite work out how you planned.
Approximately 1 in 5 women will have a miscarriage in the first few weeks of being pregnant.
Some women will have a few consecutive miscarriages and this is termed ‘recurrent miscarriage’ - these women and their partners should be seen by a fertility specialist to see if there is a correctable cause.
Ectopic Pregnancy and Early Pregnancy Problems
Sometimes pregnancies implant themselves in the wrong place - this is called an ‘ectopic pregnancy’. The most common ectopic pregnancy is in the fallopian tube. This can lead to pain and bleeding and in the worst case can rupture leading to severe internal bleeding. Ectopic pregnancies are considered a gynaecological emergency and should be seen urgently.
