Re: I feel like a fraud

Hi both I’ve had 2 ectopics & haven’t had any pain through either. The only way I knew was because I bled dark blood. The docs & nurses who treated me both times didn’t take pain as a given symptom so treated me straight away. Such a shame the pain symptom has given such importance in this circumsta...

Hi Kaygill I had my 2nd ectopic removed with my left tube in April. I still cry almost everyday & am nowhere near being ‘over it’. You’re feelings are your feelings & we have to go with them there is no set time when things will get better. There is no aftercare for ectopics either which I think mak...

Re: Ectopic Stories / advice

Hi 2020Lady Both my ectopics I had no pain or discomfort. My 1st was treated with methotrexate & I felt totally wiped out & drained for weeks after. It was a very emotional time & it dragged on for weeks. I didn’t necessarily worry about body pain as i cud see my bludy levels reducing. My 2nd ectopi...

Re: Miscarriage After Ectopic-Success stories needed!

Hi Pammy3 Yes I’m in the U.K. m, North West. Any advice would be great with regards to test. I think private might be the only way forward with the wait times for the NHS at the minute. I had been referred in March to a fertility clinic but they have advised it’ll b unlikely I’ll even have a 1st vis...

Re: Miscarriage After Ectopic-Success stories needed!

Hi Pammy3 Thanks for that. I have had 2 ectopics as well & lost my left tube. So with only one left & being childless any reassurance would be good. Did u get referred for a private test or did u arrange it yourself? I have no idea how to go the private route but think this might be necessary to hel...

Re: Miscarriage After Ectopic-Success stories needed!

Hi pammy3

I can’t share a successful story I’m afraid but was curious as to how/why u had the dye test?
Are you in the uk?
Was this something u had to ask for or was it offered?

I’m asking as I haven’t had any tests & don’t no what/if I should & how I go about this.

Thanks

Re: Scared possible ectopic?

Hi Wk1984 My 1st ectopic was resolved with methotrexate as my levels were constantly rising just never by the right amount & by the time I got to 8 weeks I was barely 1000 HCG. In that week they did also see a mass so both coupled together they decided it is was an ectopic & offered me methotrexate....

Re: Why does the risk increase if you’ve had one eptopic?

Hi

How do you all know the ‘dodgy’ tube was removed? I’ve had 2x ectopics & a tube removed but no one has ever said my tube or tubes are dodgy?
Is there some sort of test u r having & if so what? What do I need to do to get this test?
U.K., north west based, if that helps
