In a recent article published by a clinical risk and patient safety group the issue of Ectopic Pregnancy was placed under the spotlight. All too often we receive calls from clients who have had similar experiences and as a result of a delay in diagnosis, they have undergone more drastic surgery than would otherwise have been necessary.
Often a delay in diagnosis can lead to a patient having to have a fallopian tube and or ovary removed, which obviously impacts their future prospects of pregnancy.
Ectopic pregnancy happens in 1 out of 50 pregnancies and it is essential to have an accurate and timely diagnosis.
If your period is more than 7 days late following the use of emergency contraception, a pregnancy test should always be carried out.
It is not appropriate for your GP to discount this possibility without considering and making the appropriate investigations to exclude it as a potential diagnosis.
If you feel this has happened to you then it’s important that you seek the advice of an expert clinical negligence lawyer with the appropriate expertise in medical negligence.
Our team have a wealth of experience and are happy to assist you and advise you as to the viability of your claim and also the steps you will need to take following your free initial consultation with one of our solicitors.
