Re: Management options - scared

Dear Enfys, I am so sorry to hear of your ectopic pregnancy and losses, I have also replied to your other post, but I just wanted to check if your hospital offers medical management with methotrexate injection. This is often used if you are stable but hCG levels are less than 5000. It is less invasi...

Re: Recovering after ectopic pregnancy

Dear Sony, Although I do not wish to alarm or upset you, if left, ectopic pregnancies can cause internal bleeding and this can be life threatening to mum. Sadly the pregnancy cannot be relocated to the womb and as it is not growing properly in the womb, would not continue to develop properly. When d...

Dear foreverhopeful, I am so sorry to hear of your ectopic pregnancy loss, Expectant management does not have the side effects of methotrexate and isn't invasive like surgery but it sure does take it out of people waiting for those hCG levels to fall. People can feel in limbo and that their life is ...

Re: HCG levels?

Dear LaceAri, I am so sorry to hear of the worrying time you are going through, If scans are inconclusive, doctors would carry out a series of blood tests to check hCG levels to see if the numbers are rising as expected. However, in isolation, hCG tests only provide a part of the picture - declining...
