Tubal pregnancy
Abstract
Une grossesse ectopique se produit quand un ovule fécondé s’implante à l’extérieur de l’utérus, le plus souvent dans les trompes de Fallope. Au fur et à mesure que l’ovule fécondé grossit, il étire la trompe de Fallope jusqu’à une rupture éventuelle. La présente ressource explique la fréquence des grossesses ectopiques, les raisons de faire des analyses sanguines pour vérifier s’il y a une grossesse ectopique, les symptômes à surveiller dans l’attente des résultats des analyses et la façon dont les résultats sont transmis. Un numéro de téléphone est fourni si vous avez des questions.
This is a French translation of the English pamphlet 1600, “Possible Ectopic (Tubal) Pregnancy: Nova Scotia Women’s Choice Clinic (NSWCC)”. An ectopic pregnancy is when a fertilized egg implants outside the uterus, most often in the fallopian tube. As the fertilized egg grows, it stretches the fallopian tube until it could eventually rupture (break open). This pamphlet explains the frequency of ectopic pregnancies, the reasons for testing for an ectopic pregnancy, symptoms to watch for when waiting for blood test results, and how your test results will be delivered. A contact number is provided if you have any questions.
