Is it possible to prevent ectopic pregnancy?
Hello, About 1 in 100 pregnancies are ectopic pregnancies. An ectopic pregnancy is when a fertilized egg develops outside the womb. An ectopic pregnancy most often occurs in a fallopian tube, which carries eggs from the ovaries to the uterus. Such a type of pregnancy puts one at health risk too and can be very serious if it isn't treated. My friend's wife recently had an ectopic pregnancy that made me worried. Is there any way to prevent it? Are there any precautions that can prevent ectopic pregnancy?
@dorothea Hello, sorry but there is no prevention to prevent ectopic pregnancy but you can decrease your risk of ectopic pregnancy by Limiting the number of sexual partners, and using a condom during sex helps to prevent sexually transmitted infections and may reduce the risk of pelvic inflammatory disease. If you smoke avoid smoking. Thanks!
