CONCERNS ABOUT PREGNANCY

If I have an ectopic pregnancy, can it be moved into the womb?

No. An ectopic pregnancy must be removed, either medically or surgically.

If I have a pregnancy in my uterus and in my tube at the same time, what can be done about it?

It is rare, but if detected early it may be possible to remove an ectopic pregnancy without disturbing the pregnancy in the uterus.

How common are chromosome abnormalities in embryos?

Research has shown that chromosome abnormalities can be common in eggs and with advancing age, a woman’s risk of having aneuploid (abnormal number of chromosome) eggs is greatly increased. Clinicians believe this is the main reason why birth rates fall for women in their late thirties and early forties.
