Despite it being promoted as a very safe contraceptive measure, the Paragard IUD fails to warn users of the health risks associated with the product and can cause severe complications.
The entire purpose of having an IUD in place is compromised when you get pregnant. The highest chance of pregnancy occurs during the first days after the IUD placement, or when the device has moved out of position.
In the case of ectopic pregnancy, the worst part is that it requires surgery most frequently, can cause severe complications and even death.
An ectopic pregnancy develops outside the uterus, usually in one of the fallopian tubes, and needs immediate treatment. The embryo is unable to grow properly and in most cases the tube ruptures, endangering the mother’s life.
While at first, an ectopic pregnancy may appear as a normal one, with its regular response like amenorrhoea, nausea, or fatigue, there are specific reactions to look out for.
Symptoms of ectopic pregnancy:
An ectopic pregnancy can be fatal without timely intervention. For instance, the fallopian tube can burst, causing internal abdominal bleeding and serious blood loss. However, if the diagnosis is uncertain, a doctor may run some further blood tests or perform an ultrasound until the pregnancy is confirmed.
Seeking urgent medical attention is crucial in determining what is the best course of action, depending on the circumstances. Prompt treatment reduces the risk of complications and increases the opportunity for future healthy pregnancies.
