Track your menstrual cycle. Take a pregnancy using the pregnancy kits available in the market if you miss your date. If the pregnancy test is positive, Dr. Anshu strictly suggests consulting a gynecologist. Whether you want to continue the pregnancy or not. Taking a pill from a pharmacist could be harmful. Consulting a gynecologist, she would perform an ultrasound to locate the actual location of the zygote. This way, one can find out at an early stage whether it is an ectopic pregnancy or no. According to Dr. Ansu, this pregnancy is easier to treat when diagnosed at an early stage. There is medical management done, and then the pregnancy is observed and investigated.
But on the other hand, it could lead to the zygote growing inside the fallopian tube if the ectopic pregnancy is not diagnosed and treated in the early stage. This could lead to tubal rupture. this results in severe internal bleeding and massive hamarage as the fallopian tube gets erupted. Which can be fatal. To avoid this pregnancy, Dr. Anshu suggests getting an ultrasound done. To locate the zygote and treat it at an early stage without complications. And consulting a gynecologist.
