Re: Methotrexate last week - pain & bleeding

Hi Dawillis, I just wanted to check-in on you today. As TryAgain92 mentioned, as you are not yet to non-pregnancy hcg levels, it's essential to continue monitoring your symptoms as there is still a risk of rupture. With any increased pain, especially radiating to the shoulder tip, you will want to b...

Re: Eptopic tx and my surgery

Hi Bld1, I am so sorry to hear you've suffered this ectopic pregnancy and loss. We can never be prepared for how we will feel following a trauma such as this one. While we may begin to heal physically, there are still emotions which we will need to sort through as we recover. Your loss is still rece...

Re: Methotrexate

Hi Sazzles, I just wanted to check in on you. As TryAgain92 mentioned, it's very important to monitor your symptoms while on methotrexate and to go to A&E with any severe pains, especially radiating to the shoulder tip. It is better to be seen in these cases. As your hcg levels are not to non-pregna...

Re: Isolated

Hi Ausgirl1, I too struggled my ectopic pregnancies and felt very isolated, feeling that no one quite understood what I was going through, nor even I really understood what I was going through. At that time, I found that journaling helped me to get the thoughts out of my head and with time, I was ab...

Re: Bloating

Hi, The Second One, To answer your question, bloatedness is a reaction to the operation and the inflammation following this. The length of time it continues varies, but it should settle within six weeks. If it continues for longer, it may be a sign that you have some ongoing infection and you should...

Re: 6 week check up - am I brave enough to do it again?

Hi kayjayleo, I had my first ectopic in my right tube, and then the second inside my uterus in the stump of the right tube which ruptured my uterus. It was my left tube which allowed me to become pregnant. I know how emotionally challenging it can be, and I encourage women to take it in their own ti...

Dear Oneday 3, I am so sorry to hear of your ectopic pregnancy and loss. It is normal to feel anxious about the future. We experience a mix of emotions from wanting to try again to being petrified of what may lie ahead. We never forget our babies, but we can learn to accept what happened. It is a sl...

Hi Kayjayleo, I'm so sorry you've had to go through these ectopic pregnancies and losses. They can leave us with so many questions, and it difficult when we are given messages of uncertainty from our medical staff. I too suffered two ectopic pregnancies and was diagnosed with "bad luck". As the Trus...

As much as I wish I could give you more certainty, as we are so unique, I am afraid there isn't a timeframe as such. It’s important to remember that there is nothing you could have done to prevent the ect...
