Ectopic Pregnancy

Ectopic pregnancy is a pregnancy that occurs in one of the fallopian tubes or other areas outside the uterus. This can be very dangerous and life threatening. Left untreated, it may lead to rupture and serious bleeding in the mother. Symptoms of ectopic pregnancy usually begin during the first trimester, but may occur later in some women. Early symptoms will be similar to those of normal pregnancy such as nausea, breast tenderness, and frequent urination. If you believe that you may have an ectopic pregnancy you absolutely need to get to the ER immediately!

Elevated Blood Sugar - Asymptomatic (Diabetes)

Elevated blood sugar (diabetes) is a chronic disease of metabolism caused by the body’s inability to produce enough insulin, and/or a resistance to the insulin being made which leads to high blood sugar levels over a prolonged period. There are three types of diabetes: Type 1 is usually found in younger patients and requires insulin, Type 2 develops later in life and is more commonly associated with obesity, and gestational diabetes is associated with pregnancy. You may not have any symptoms with your elevated blood sugar, but may develop symptoms at any time.

Endometriosis

Endometriosis is the medical term for uterine tissue outside of the uterus. The inside lining of the uterus is called the endometrium. When the endometrial tissue is present outside the uterus, it can cause severe pain especially during your menstrual cycle. The pain from endometriosis can be quite severe. The pain usually become less painful as a woman ages and may stop entirely after a woman has her first baby. Endometriosis can cause problems with a woman's fertility.
