When you begin to experience what you believe to be complications during your pregnancy, it can be very alarming, especially if it occurs after hours when your obstetrician’s office is no longer open. University Urgent Care in Fort Worth, TX serves the TCU, Paschal, Tanglewood, and Frisco Heights areas, and wants you to rest assured that our facility is equipped to treat pregnancy emergencies with compassion and urgency. Our physicians are board certified in emergency care, our onsite laboratory is state of the art, and our exam rooms are private to help you feel as comfortable as possible during this time.
Our facility is prepared to treat the following pregnancy-related emergencies:
Ectopic Pregnancy – Caused by the implantation of a fertilized egg to the outside of the uterus, commonly in the fallopian tubes. Symptoms can include abdominal pain, abnormal bleeding, bladder or bowel issues, back pain, and low blood pressure. Ectopic pregnancies require immediate treatment to prevent the potential for serious complications for the mother.
Miscarriage – The loss of a pregnancy within 20 weeks of conception. While the cause is often unknown, it can be due to the fertilized egg’s lack of normal development within the uterus. Symptoms include abnormal bleeding, lower back pain, and pain or pressure in the pelvic region. Miscarriages do not always require intervention, but should be monitored to avoid infection or future complications.

Seeking Medical Care
The symptoms listed above require medical attention at University Urgent Care and should not be ignored. Ectopic pregnancies and miscarriages cannot be reversed once they have begun, but proper treatment during and after can make all the difference in future pregnancies. If you experience a loss of consciousness, severe vaginal bleeding, sudden and severe abdominal or pelvic pain, or feel dizzy, lightheaded, or faint, it is imperative that you go to the emergency room immediately. Ectopic pregnancies can at times require surgery to order to avoid the rupturing of the reproductive organs or severe blood loss.
What to Expect
To determine the cause of your condition, our skilled physicians will begin your evaluation with a discussion about previous pregnancies, your medical history, and your symptoms. In an effort to offer a proper diagnosis, our physicians will likely perform a pelvic exam. A pelvic exam will help our medical team to determine if there is bleeding present, if the cervix is open, or if there is pain and/or tenderness in the ovaries or fallopian tubes. If necessary and applicable, we may also perform a sonogram to determine whether or not there is a heartbeat present. Finally, we may test your HCG levels via blood draw. Our onsite laboratory is state of the art and able to return lab results in as little as 15 minutes on most occasions.
