Benzodiazepine (more commonly known as Valium and Xanax) and risk of ectopic pregnancy
Ectopic Pregnancy is a common, life threatening condition that is the leading cause of death in early pregnancy.
It affects 1 in 80 pregnancies in the UK and women who suffer have to face the physical trauma of major invasive treatment, their own mortality, the impact on their future fertility and the sad loss of losing their baby all very quickly. This can be a very frightening and distressing experience.
The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust believes that the deaths and trauma associated with ectopic pregnancy should be prevented or minimised and seeks to support women and their families through this difficult period of their lives. The Charity also provides Information, Education and Support to medical professionals who treat early pregnancy complications.
Many of the fundraising activities suggested on our website can be adapted in light of Government guidelines during the coronavirus outbreak. You can help us raise funds and awareness about ectopic pregnancy while at home. Raise funds at home »
