At the beginning of this month, actress Megan Fox opened up about her miscarriage with her fiancé Machine Gun Kelly, born as Colson Baker. Fox has now opened up about another pregnancy complication she suffered long before she was with the musician.
While speaking to WWD, Megan Fox revealed that she had suffered ectopic pregnancy when she was younger. For Megan Fox, her miscarriage was so much more challenging than she thought it would be. In the interview, she said, “I’ve really analyzed, ‘Why was that? Why was that so difficult for me?'” Megan Fox explained that the miscarriage was all the more challenging to cope with as it came years after her pregnancy loss.
Earlier in November, Fox opened up about her miscarriage. She mentioned how they both used their form of creative outlets to express their grief. Fox talked about her miscarriage in her poetry book “Pretty Boys Are Poisonous.” She wrote about an ultrasound of a baby girl at ten weeks and a day, sharing, “maybe if you hadn’t… maybe if i had…” While Machine Gun expressed his pain through his albums.
Megan Fox stated that her prior pregnancy complications were not as draining as the miscarriage. She explained that the pain she feels for losing her baby to a miscarriage is much worse as she shared the baby with someone she loves very deeply. In the interview, she noted, “So it just felt like something that I could address publicly because it’s been addressed in one way through him, so I have a space to express as well.”
Fox is mom to sons Journey, 7, Bodhi, 9, and Noah, 11, whom she shares with ex-husband Brian Austin Green (via E! News).
What Is Ectopic Pregnancy?
As per Mayo Clinic, in normal pregnancy, the process begins with a fertilized egg, which attaches to the lining of the uterus. However, in an ectopic pregnancy, the fertilized egg implants and grows outside the central cavity of the uterus. Ectopic pregnancies most often occur in the fallopian tube, which carries eggs from the ovaries to the uterus, and are called tubal pregnancies.
However, ectopic pregnancies can also occur in other areas of the body, such as the ovary, abdominal cavity, or the lower part of the uterus (cervix). In such cases, ectopic pregnancy can’t proceed normally. The fertilized egg cannot survive, and the growing tissue may cause life-threatening bleeding if not treated.
