What is a fertilized egg, and what are its anomalies
In order to grow a new little man, he needs to go through several stages before birth. One of the first and sure signs of pregnancy is the fertilized egg in the uterus. This term in the first weeks of pregnancy will be called your baby.
The first "cradle"
A fetal egg is an embryo and its shells. In the first trimester of pregnancy, which is the most important stage in the development of an unborn baby, the main diagnosis is based on the study of the ovum. Normally, it has a spherical rounded shape and corresponds in size to the established period of pregnancy and the age of the embryo. But sometimes the beginning of pregnancy in women is overshadowed by incomprehensible and frightening diagnoses from this.
If according to the results of ultrasound diagnostics in the conclusion “deformed fertilized egg” is written, this does not mean absolutely nothing if the embryo's heartbeat is heard. Deformity could result from an increased uterine tone.The reproductive organ squeezed the fertilized egg, and it took an irregular shape. On the ultrasound images it will be oblong. As soon as the uterus is normalized, the deformation of the ovum will disappear. But still, you should carefully consider the diagnosis: the oblong form of the ovum indicates the risk of miscarriage, abortion. The main treatment prescribed for such a conclusion is the use of antispasmodic drugs. Full rest is recommended. All these recommendations are easy to implement and provide a favorable prognosis for the preservation of pregnancy and the birth of a healthy baby. At the early stage of pregnancy, other pathological processes that can lead to miscarriage or fetal death can be diagnosed.
Pregnancy does not develop
So, it is not uncommon at an early period to be diagnosed with a so-called frozen pregnancy. This pathology is due to the fact that at some point the fertilized egg stops growing and developing, because the embryo dies. The basis of this diagnosis is the ratio of the duration of pregnancy with the size of the ovum. Unfortunately, this anomaly has no cure.The only sure way to preserve mothers health and life is by scraping the uterus and removing the dead cells of the embryo from it.
Pregnancy without embryo
Another no less critical anomaly is anembrionia, in other words, an empty fertilized egg. This is a condition where the membranes of the ovum increase in size, grow, but there is no embryo inside them. This diagnosis can only be made at an ultrasound session that is held no later than the sixth or seventh week. It should be noted that according to a single ultrasound study, the final diagnosis is not made, a repeated study is always appointed for clarification.
What is the forecast?
All these developmental anomalies are detected in the early stages, and therefore a favorable prognosis is always maintained for the future. If the fertilized egg is deformed, early diagnosis allows you to save the pregnancy, if there are other changes, the health and life of the woman who, after examination and treatment, can bear and give birth to a healthy baby is saved.
