Second coil Pregnancy

Post by PowerThroughAgain »

Hi all,

Last year I got pregnant on the copper coil which ended up Ectopic with methotrexate.

I again have got pregnant on the coil, some how beating statistics hete.

Last week I had heavy bleeding clots and aches. The bleeding has now stopped but remain achey. I contacted Early pregnancy unit, they scanned and couldnt see anything. Taken my HCG which was only 75 which is why they didn't see anything. I have had my bloods taken again today 48 hour's later and it's 190.

Is that a good increase?

I have a scan again end of next week, hoping for a healthy pregnancy. I'm also worried that if it is viable what the effects of the coil will be?

Ahh

Thanks for listening

Hey there,

Sorry to hear about your ectopic pregnancy - I can appreciate the stress of waiting to confirm where your current one is located. As far as I know they expect hormones to double every 48 hrs in a 'normal' pregnancy. I know each experience and body is unique, but still wanted to share that my sister did have a successful pregnancy despite having a copper IUD and went on to give birth to beautiful twin boys that are now 5. From what I recall there are risks associated with having an IUD even if the pregnancy in intra-uterine, but I hope my sister gives your hope while you wait for more conclusive results. Keep us posted on what you hear ❤️.

Thank you so much for your replies.
I've been suffering with cramps and had a gush and bleeding today so my scan has been moved forward to tomorrow and I just don't know what to expect, it could go many different ways. X

They again couldn't see anything on the scan and they rechecked my HCG and it has dropped from 190 to 152, it has been 4 days since my last HCG so should have been significantly higher. They are thinking it's most likely a miscarriage now but for repeat blood sin 48hours :cry:
Thanks for all the support along the way but looks like it's the end of the road on this journey, onto the next..
