I suffered an ectopic pregnancy in August, had the injection which didn’t work so had to be admitted for emergency surgery. During this surgery my left tube was removed.
My first period since which was in September caused me agony on the side my tube was removed for a few days. Interestingly, this second period is causing me agony on the opposite side, to the point I’ve been in bed most of the morning in pain.
Has anyone else experienced this? If the pain was on the side my tube was removed I’d understand it but it’s the opposite side so just wondering if this is common.
I’m sorry to hear about your experience; I too had my right tube removed vi an emergency procedure about 6 weeks ago.
I found my first period was really painful and exactly like you, was experiencing ovulation pain that started on the side with no tube and then gravitated to the other side.
I spoke with my GP who said since I still have both of my ovaries that this is expected and the first 3 periods/ovulation a will feel like this and other people on the forum say the ovulation pains are sometimes worse than period pains. However if you are concerned, I’d really recommend speaking to your doctor.
One thing ive learnt from this whole traumatic experience is not to be afraid to speak up when I’m in pain and not to downplay any unusual symptoms.
Best of luck with your recovery
