Rezumat: Introduction. Women with ectopic pregnancy experience feelings of sadness, depression and guilt. This study aimed to identify and evaluate the psychoemotional impact on women who were diagnosed with ectopic pregnancy and need psychological counselling after such an experience. Materials and method. We studied 53 eligible women who were diagnosed with ectopic pregnancy and treated at the Bucur Maternity, Bucharest. The patients completed a questionnaire with 28 questions. Results. The maximum incidence of ectopic pregnancy was between 26 and 30 years old. Regarding emotional disturbance, most patients (56.8%) experienced irritability, 41.1% had depression, 31.3% mentioned insomnia, and 21.5% felt guilty. The results showed that the highest incidence of depression was in patients who already had a child (52.4%). The patients were asked about their feelings when they were diagnosed with ectopic pregnancy, and most of them (77.4%) felt sad. Drug treatment had an impact on half of the interviewed women (55%). We tried to find if the patients needed or searched a psychological counselling session. The results indicated that 81.1% of them didn’t see a psychologist. Conclusions. According to our study, patients were psychoemotionally affected by the ectopic pregnancy. Most of them did not seek help from a psychologist.
Cuvinte cheie: ectopic pregnancy, psychological issues, emotional disturbance, psychological counselling.
