Re: Single person journey

Hi Keeri1106, I am really sorry to hear what you had to go through. Unfortunately, I cannot say that I experienced the same as I do have a partner. Nevertheless, I also did feel loneliness. Although I live with my partner, he was in the process of changing career. So he was out most of the day, atte...

Re: Second ectopic pregnancy

Hi Phoenix136, I am really sorry to hear what you had to go through. Unfortunately, I don't have a personal experience to share with you. I had my first ectopic pregnancy last March and only just started trying again. I did go on a different forum asking for success stories as my ectopic was treated...

Re: How to talk about it

Hi Mand22, I am sorry for what you are going through. I too struggled to talk about it as my parents would have the same response as your mom and my partner was also struggling. Plus, I live on a different country than my family and friends so I am pretty cut off from my support network. I found a l...

Re: My story so far

Hi KimD, I was diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy last March and it was also in my left tube. It was found pretty early on and the only symptom I had by at that time was some weird sensation/needle pain on my left groin which the nurse initially attributed to a cyst she found in the left tube. Howe...

Re: Remaining questions after ectopic (expectant management)

Hi Millie_457, I am sorry you have to go through this. I actually experienced something very similar to you. I was diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy in my left tube in March and was managed expectantly. Apart from being over 35 years old, I have none of the other risk factors and my doctor also sa...

Re: Ectopic pregnancy- Expectant Management severe fatigue

Hi thisisponygirl, I am sorry you had to go through this. I was diagnosed with mine in March and was also successfully managed expectantly. I started spotting when my HCG reached about 32 and then it reached 19, I started bleeding a lot more - soaking a pad within 2 hours. That lasted about 2-3 days...

One sided pain after HCG 0

Hi everyone, I was wondering if people have still been experiencing one sided pain (particularly on the ectopic side). My ectopic pregnancy was managed expectantly. 4 weeks ago was when my HCG went to negative. I am still waiting for my first period. I have been experiencing cramping/pinching like p...

Re: Expectant management

I am glad to hear that your levels are going in the right direction. They actually also found a cyst on my left tube (where my ectopic is or was). I wonder if that's the reason I've been having pain. I did ask my doctor but she was very dismissive about it and didn't even answer my question. The mas...

Re: Expectant management

Hi Hopeful2, Of course you can ask. My HCG luckily never went above 40. The following HCG were 32, 19 and then under 1. As I waited and went back and forth for more bloods, I did have a lot of abdominal pain and not just on my ectopic side. At one point, I ended up in hospital with severe abdominal ...

A little wobble after expectant management

Hi everyone, This one will be another long one. Sorry... I thought I was coming out of my black hole a couple of days ago. I didn’t feel so guilty when I smiled or laughed or joked with my partner. I didn’t feel the need to cry every time I thought of something sad. I even started feeling hopeful ag...

Re: Struggling with treatment decision

Hi Autumn4, I'm sorry you are going through this. I just found out that my levels have reached 0 after expectant management. But I also struggled to make the right decision as my doctor was really pushing for surgery despite my levels being below the 40s. So I went and did a lot of research to help ...

How to support my partner

Hi everyone, I am sorry for posting on this forum as I know it is only for men. But I know my partner would not post on here. It was the first time we seriously tried and I fell pregnant right away this month. I couldn't believe how lucky I was but the celebration was cut short when I found out that...

Hi Steph06, Thank you so much for sharing your successful story. I am currently going through my first ever pregnancy which turned out to be ectopic. I was so devastated and only saw the dark side of every statistic I could find about my chances of a successful pregnancy after an ectopic. But hearin...

Hi Caroline89, Thank you for sharing your story and congratulation on your little boy. I too have been looking for success stories since I found out I had an ectopic pregnancy. I try not to be too disheartened by the fact that there don't seem to be that many. But I need to remind myself that most w...

Hi Xamy88X, I hope you managed to stay on the expectant management. I only just found out yesterday that I had an ectopic pregnancy. Because my HCG levels are so low at the moment (37.4 on Monday and Wednesday and 39.0 on Friday), my doctor is hoping for expectant management although she did give me...

Hi LBrown, Thank you for your message of kindness. I am so sorry you had to go through what you went through. You are right when you said that people can't fully understand unless they went through it themselves. The first thing I did when I found out about my ectopic was to call my family and frien...

Hi everyone, Thank you so much for sharing all of your stories. I am deeply sorry for all your losses. I am currently going through my first ectopic pregnancy. I too have none of the risk factors and for some reason, still ended up in that 1% of women. I only just found out yesterday and I am still ...

I am 36 years-old and don't have any of the known risk factors to ectopic pregnancies. So I couldn't understand why 'me' ...

Hi everyone, I am new to this board and I thought I'd tell my story. I move to the UK from Canada and have been living here for over 10 years now. I have a non-existant circle of friends as the pandemic made them all move away. I live with my partner but due to several reasons, he is unable to suppo...
