Types of OB/GYN Emergencies
You may want to go to an emergency room specializing in OB/GYN care if you have any of the following symptoms and conditions:
- Abnormal vaginal bleeding
- Pelvic pain
- Post-surgery complications
- Sever breast pain
- Urinary tract infection (UTI)
If you are pregnant, you may go to the OB/GYN ER for:
- Antenatal conditions
- Pain/bleeding in early pregnancy
- Pre-term labor
Women experiencing vaginal bleeding, dizziness and severe abdominal cramps during the first trimester should immediately go to the emergency room as it could be a sign of ectopic pregnancy.
During an ectopic pregnancy, the fertilized egg does not go to the uterus but instead stays in the fallopian tube. This is a potentially life-threatening pregnancy complication that needs to be assessed by a specialist to ensure no permanent damage is done to the fallopian tube.
Heavy bleeding combined with severe cramping can be a sign of a miscarriage in the first and second trimester. If you experience any of these symptoms, seek emergency medical attention or call your obstetrician for more guidance.
If you are having a potentially life-threatening medical emergency, call 911.
