Physicians discovered that a woman from Canada had a rare and unusual ectopic pregnancy.

Doctor Michael Narvey explained that the woman, aged 33, went to the doctor for menstrual problems.

A fertilized egg is implanted in a different place than the main cavity.

This is most commonly seen in the fallopian tube, but almost never in the liver.

Narvey stated, “This case is unique for me,” when describing it.

In an ectopic pregnancy, the fertilized egg will be implanted in the fallopian tubes instead of entering the uterus.

In a typical ectopic pregnancy, a fertilized egg will implant in a fallopian tube – an organ that carries eggs from the ovaries to the uterus – instead of in the uterus itself, according to the Mayo Clinic.

However, sometimes, these pregnancies can occur outside of the uterus, like in the abdomen.

Fertilized eggs cannot survive outside the uterus and do not grow well, which makes ectopic pregnancies extremely dangerous for mothers and their babies.

According to Verywell, these pregnancies are quite common. About one out of fifty pregnancies is ectopic in America.

It is much more common to have an ectopic pregnancy within the abdomen than in the fallopian tubes.

According to Intractable Diseases Research, only 14 cases were reported in 35 years prior to November 1999.

The case of an unplanned pregnancy in the liver of a woman led Dr Michael Narvey from the Children’s Research Institute of Manitoba, Canada to be surprised.

Narvey stated, “I thought that I’d seen it all,” while describing the case via TikTok.

“A 33-year-old female comes in with a 14 day history of menstrual problems and 49 days after her last period,” he stated.

According to Mayo Clinic, symptoms of ectopic pregnancy include bleeding from the abdomen, pelvis, and vaginal pain. These conditions can get worse as the baby grows.

Narvey said that they found a baby in their livers. He pointed to the TikTok’s sonogram.

He stated that she was suffering from an ectopic pregnancy and had a liver problem.

“We sometimes see them in our abdomen, but they never appear in our liver. It’s a new experience for me.

According to The Sun, doctors were able save the life of the woman but couldn’t rescue her growing baby.

Narvey shared a follow-up video on TikTok, explaining ectopic pregnancies and saying that, in very rare cases, a fertilized egg may travel the wrong way - to the abdomen or even the liver

Narvey uploaded a TikTok video that explained ectopic pregnancies. He also said that in some rare cases, fertilized eggs can travel wrong-way – sometimes to the liver or abdomen.

Narvey explains how an odd ectopic pregnancies occurred in a video that was posted Thursday.

He said, “Normally, fertilized eggs, which are usually fertilized through the fallopian tubes, travel into the uterus where they implant.”

The fertilized egg can get stuck in the fallopian tube, which is most common with ectopic pregnancies.

It is possible that the egg and the sperm can combine and travel in the opposite direction. [in the fallopian tube]Narvey said that they could implant the embryos in the peritoneum if they were able to get out of the way for the ovary.

The tissue that lines the abdominal wall is called the peritoneum.

Narvey stated that the egg and the sperm of the Canadian woman ‘wound up travelling up to their liver, where they implanted themselves there’.

An ectopic pregnancy in the liver has been identified at least once before, according to a 2017 scientific report (file image)

A 2017 scientific report (file photo) has shown that an ectopic pregnancy within the liver was identified at least one time.

At least one case of such an ectopic birth has already been reported.

In 2017, a report published by the Journal of Experimental and Therapeutic Medicine describes the case of a 31 year-old woman with an ectopic pregnancy.

Before the discovery of her pregnancy, she went 40 days without any periods and had abdominal cramps for 27 days.

The Canadian patient was similarly fortunate. However, the patient did not recover from the surgery and the baby could not be saved.

Ectopic pregnancies can be caused by a past ectopic pregnancy or if the woman is older than 35 and has a history infertility.
