At Medimax, our team of highly trained, and caring staff assess and treat:
- Pregnant women with pain or/and bleeding in early pregnancy up to 14 weeks
- Pregnant women with high risk of an ectopic (outside the womb) pregnancy
- Non-pregnant women with severe pelvic pain.
At your appointment you will see a doctor who will assess you by taking your medical history and giving you an internal ultrasound scan. They will then discuss with you the likely cause of your symptoms, whether you need to have any further investigations and what treatment options are available
The early pregnancy unit is a specialist assessment and scanning service for pregnant women up to 14 weeks gestation who have experienced pain and / or vaginal bleeding.
Although many patients can be reassured that their pregnancy is progressing normally, where there are problems a full range of treatment options can be offered.
Depending on the exact circumstances, we can often offer treatment for a miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy using medicines as an outpatient rather than having to have an operation.
