Ectopic pregnancy (EP) is when an embryo implants in the fallopian tube instead of in uterus.
All ectopic pregnancy must be removed or else it will burst and cause severe bleeding. After an EP, 65% of couples will have successful pregnancy within 18 months after which they should seek fertility treatment because the other tube could be partially damaged or there are other fertility factors which when corrected will results in successful pregnancy, as seen in patient YXH below.
YXH, married for 9 years has been trying for over 3 years to have a child. Once pregnant 6 years ago but it was an EP which was operated & removed before it rupture.
She then tried naturally for another 2 years without success. She visited Metro IVF, 4 years ago and was found to have PCOS. She was advised & did her 1st IVF + FET. She successfully conceived and delivered a baby boy (3 years old boy in picture above)
In 2019, she came back for her 2nd FET cycle. She’s pregnant again and delivered a baby girl on 19th August 2020 by Cesarean surgery. Metro IVF team members are delighted to have the opportunity to assist her in building a family.
Congrats to YXH, her husband and family members.
