primary abdominal pregnancy
Primary embryo attachment occurs when the embryo is directly attached and implanted in the abdomen and is extremely rare.
secondary abdominal pregnancy
In this condition the embryo begins to grow in the ovary or fallopian tube, but due to a small separation, the embryo implants in the abdominal cavity.
Pain during abdominal cavity pregnancy is similar to pain during tubal pregnancy. If the fetus continues to grow, abdominal pain begins after 26-28 weeks of pregnancy.
Fallopian tubes can burst in the first trimester of pregnancy. As a result, the skin turns yellow due to the constant secretion of blood that accumulates in the abdominal cavity.
symptoms of abdominal pregnancy
Symptoms and signs of abdominal pregnancy are generally similar to those of pregnant women. These include –
- tenderness in breasts

- intestinal obstruction,
- high fever,
- Abdominal pain and vaginal bleeding.

Abdominal pregnancy treatment
Usually, abdominal pregnancy is treated through ultrasound. The location of the gestational sac is confirmed using ultrasound. In some cases laparoscopy is also used to confirm pregnancy.
Learn the Cure
Abdominal pregnancies are terminated by surgery or medicine. If an abdominal pregnancy is detected early, doctors give a single dose of methotrexate to terminate it.
This medicine stops the cells from dividing, stops heavy bleeding and allows the body to reabsorb the placenta. The causes of abdominal pregnancy cannot be prevented. It is therefore important that this form of pregnancy is detected at the earliest.
