Re: Miscarriage After Ectopic-Success stories needed!

So sorry to hear of your ectopic, it's so awful. But thank you for sharing your story of success, you're right it's absolutely encouraging. I'm still struggling to get pregnant again, and patience has never been a strong point of mine, so mentally finding it so draining. The age factor is so cruel a...

Re: When will it get easier?

You're really not alone in feeling this, I've just had enough of it all. Had ectopic last year and miscarriage in July. So tired of trying, seeing other people get pregnant immediately and just the whole cycle of it. My life was great til all this. I really feel I need a break, but it's so hard, as ...

Re: Miscarriage After Ectopic-Success stories needed!

Oh Jen, I know exactly how you feel. I hope this forum makes you feel less alone. I find I only come on here when I'm at my lowest ebb and it helps make me feel better. So thank you for sharing and also to Vicks8_2, you have no idea how much those positive stories help! I am the same in that I don't...

Re: Miscarriage After Ectopic-Success stories needed!

Hi Jen, Thanks for sharing this, sorry not been on here for a while. I haven't fallen pregnant since last miscarriage, periods still seem a little off-I was like clockwork before, but they always come a few days early now. I've been doing ovulation tests and get the smiley faces but we'll see. Dr's ...

Re: Miscarriage After Ectopic-Success stories needed!

I went private as at the time the waiting list was months and I needed reassurance. It was well worth it, although I'm still not satisfied after just having 2nd miscarriage. I'm now looking into what investigations I can have now. It's really hard to know where to start/what clinic to use! The reaso...

Re: Miscarriage After Ectopic-Success stories needed!

Hi Sanswars-in regards to the dye test, my first ectopic started out quite dramatically as my hcg level was over 5000 so initally I was prepped for emergency surgery. Due to a delay they noticed my hcg dropping so much they then offered methotrexate then eventually agreed on expectant management. It...

Re: Miscarriage After Ectopic-Success stories needed!

Thanks for this, gave me a bit of hope! Are you UK or US based? I ask as in the Uk we don't have assigned gynaecologists as you seem to have in the states. I am enquiring further with my Doctor today but they don't usually do tests til the third miscarriage. My other option is to go private which wi...

Relationship after Ectopic

I had an ectopic pregnancy 9 months ago. After initially being instructed to have emergency surgery-I ended up under observation in hospital for 5 days, then after that did expectant management & resolved naturally. It took about 8 weeks and afterwards there was still a mass left in the tube. Howeve...

Re: Expectant management vs medication management

Apologies I just realised you were weighing up against surgery not methotrexate. I was also concerned about leaving in a damaged tube if not removed. The consultant said there's no way of telling if it's damaged until it's physically removed! I also agonised over this. Again, unfortunately comes dow...

Re: Expectant management vs medication management

So sorry to hear about your ectopic. I was in exactly the same position 8 weeks ago with mine. Also my first pregnancy. I opted for expectant management as I didn't like the sound of methotrexate and thought I might as well see if my body could sort it itself, naturally. My initial hormone level was...

After Expectant Management-pain

After finding out I had an ectopic pregnancy 8 weeks ago I have been under expectant management. My hcg is now at 40 so hospital said no longer need to go in for blood tests, just need to do a pregnancy test in 3 weeks to check it's negative. Seems straight forward, but 2 weeks ago, I suddenly had a...

Expectant Management or Methotrexate?

Hi all, First off, this website & message board has been a godsend over this last week of unexpected events! Felt pregnant (first time) 2 weeks ago, but was bleeding a lot. Went to GP on Friday, by that afternoon was at hospital being prepped for emergency surgery. HCG level was around 4500 and was ...
