  • Bleeding Ovary.

    Hello, I recently discovered I was pregnant, but found myself on friday night curled up in pain and vomiting. I went to the out of hours doctor who suspected ectopic pregnancy, from where the pain was, so referred me for a scan on saturday.

    I went for the scan, and luckily the pregnancy is in the right place and all is fine (although the scan-lady said I was only about 4 weeks along which doesn't match up to my maths of six weeks), the pain is apparently due to the fact my left ovary is bleeding. I was told this is normal during pregnancy.

    I've never heard of an ovary bleeding after ovulating, which is what the nurse told me, and that certainly doesn't seem to make sense with the amount of pain I'm in. So my question is: is this normal? Should I just man-up and take some painkillers? Or am I right in thinking ovarian bleeding is the sign of a cyst and I should go to my doctor as the scan they did was only checking for ectopic pregnancy?

    The vomiting is apparently just awful morning sickness, and I am to live off marmite on toast and fruit water for now

    Thanks,
    P

  • My guess is you have or had an ovarian cyst, which is very common in women who are pregnant.

    If the pain and vomiting haven't subsided, you should probably call your doctor's office and see if they can check you for a cyst.

    • Hey. I think you need to worry. If all the symptoms are present, there is no doubt in the diagnosis.
      It is a pain. Almost 100 percent of ectopic pregnancies are accompanied by pain, from general painful sensations in the lower abdomen to unilateral pain at the site of development of an ectopic pregnancy (similar to pain in appendicitis, but can be felt from either side). If there is a perforation of the fallopian tube (or this moment is near), a woman can feel a sudden sharp stabbing pain in the lower abdomen, which can give to the shoulder from the same side. Any pain in the abdomen, which gradually increases, is localized and rapidly changes its character, should become the reason for immediate contact with a doctor.
      It's Bleeding. Bleeding alone is not a sign of an ectopic pregnancy. Before the perforation of the fallopian tube, bleeding may not be at all or it is insignificant. Blood is thick or liquid, brownish or dark red. Bleeding is often preceded by pain.
      This is nausea, vomiting and dizziness. As the pain becomes stronger and localized, the bleeding increases and the blood acquires a bright red color, a woman can experience attacks of nausea, vomiting and dizziness. It happens that she loses consciousness, or her pulse speedily increases.
      This is severe pain during the examination. Another sign - this is a strong pain when moving the cervix during the examination.
      It is very difficult to distinguish between miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy. However, the pain associated with miscarriage is usually not as acute and localized closer to the center of the abdomen - like menstrual cramps. Pain in tubal pregnancy is usually acute and localized, like pain with appendicitis. Bleeding during miscarriage is usually more abundant and contains blood clots, whereas in the case of ectopic pregnancy, when perforation has not yet occurred, the blood is less dense and darker.
      If you feel pain, seek medical help immediately. If you have at least one of the above symptoms and the examination suggests a tubal pregnancy, the doctor will prescribe an ultrasound examination that will identify either an empty uterus or the presence of a tiny germ outside the uterus. If an ultrasound examination does not detect an ectopic pregnancy and there are no signs of perforation, the doctor can monitor the level of the HGH hormone in your blood for several days, which in the case of an ectopic pregnancy will either fall or remain stable.
      If a presumed ectopic pregnancy remains unconfirmed, the doctor may prescribe laparoscopy to directly examine the fallopian tubes.
      In a certain sense, an ectopic pregnancy is like a miscarriage - it ends before the term. Probably, your feelings in both cases will be similar.
