Ectopic Pregnancy

Ectopic Pregnancy (6-11 Weeks) Ultrasound Scan Price: £185

Early detection with ultrasound
At London private ultrasound, we perform Transvaginal ultrasound examinations aimed at detecting ectopic pregnancies as early as the end of the 5th to 6th week of the pregnancy.  However, very early pregnancies may not yet show visible signs of ectopic or intrauterine pregnancies. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and have not had any ultrasound assessment, a transvaginal ultrasound examination may be useful in excluding an ectopic pregnancy.

Ectopic Pregnancy Symptoms:

  • Sharp, sudden abdominal or pelvic pain
  • Weakness, dizziness and or fainting
  • Vaginal bleeding or a brown watery discharge
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Pelvic pressure or discomfort
  • Gastrointestinal symptoms
  • Nausea

Understanding Conception Process:

During conception, the egg and sperm meet in one of the fallopian tubes adjacent to the uterus. The narrow, thin fallopian tubes guide the sperm towards the ovulated egg, where fertilization occurs. The resulting blastocyst then travels back to the uterine cavity over 5-6 days, implanting itself into the endometrium lining of the uterus. The uterus provides the ideal environment for pregnancy, supporting fetal development over approximately 9 months.

Risks of Ectopic Pregnancy:

However, interruptions in this process can occur due to factors such as previous pelvic infections, local adhesions, or anatomical variations. In such cases, the fertilized egg may implant itself in structures like the ovary, pelvic floor, bowel, or fallopian tube, leading to an ectopic pregnancy. Unfortunately, ectopic pregnancies cannot progress normally, posing life-threatening risks. Fortunately, ectopic pregnancies are rare in the UK, and timely treatment can prevent complications. Deaths resulting from ruptured ectopic pregnancies are extremely rare.

Absolutely amazing service. Sonographer checked absolutely everything while explaining what she was doing and seeing on screen at every step, really put my mind at ease when the NHS couldn't. I strongly recommend.

Very fast and great service. I was seen as soon as I walked through and the staff were welcoming. I was nervous as it’s my first time getting an ultrasound on my breasts but the doctor made me feel more at ease. Would definitely recommend.

I had an ultrasound for a worrying neck lump and wait time on NHS was so long I decided it was worth paying for a private scan. I was able to self refer. I saw Reza who put me at ease and was very thorough and talked me through his findings. I later received a detailed report. I paid £195 and think it was definitely worth it and wouldn’t hesitate to use this service again.

Absolutely first class. An extremely competent and patient friendly operation with the very best equipment, and available for urgent appointments. The doctor carried out the scan efficiently and explained everything, attentive to all my concerns and questions. The booking was easy, there was no wait and the doctor was kind enough to send me the report on the same day for an urgent hospital consultation. I used London Private Ultrasound because my consultant's hospital had no available slots and I am very glad that I did.

Great clinic - clinicians who listen, are thorough and highly professional. Very little waiting time and both my diagnosis and procedure (Baker cyst drainage and steroid injections) were carried out to a high standard and everything dealt with in a few days. I have had very little after pain and made a quick recovery. I was hesitant about going private and spending the money - I am neither wealthy nor health insured - but it has been well worth it to be pain free and get on with my life. Highly recommended.
