Ectopic Pregnancy :( Lock Rss


Hi there
I am currently recovering from an ectopic pregnancy and terrified of trying again.
How do I get into that forum 'life after an ectopic pregnancy' ?

So sore - it's been over 3 weeks now. Feels like they have stiched me too tight


I'm sorry to hear of your loss. Hang in there, it gets better. I am now 6 weeks post surgery and almost feeling like myself again. Did you lose your tube or just have the pregnancy removed? I had my tube removed, but they left my ovary just incase we need to rely on the old turkey baster. My other tube is covered in cysts and may not ovulate. So I'm now left with one good tube, and one good ovary, but they are on different sides

Hey ladies,
I've just returned from the hospital after having an ectopic pregnancy along with my left tube removed and a whole lot of internal bleeding drained. I went to the gp on saturday as I was having mild bleeding with a lot of abdominal cramps, he did a pg test and it came up a BFP to our great surprise. We went to the hospital to get a scan etc, and the O&G specialist said she was quite confident everything was ok. The cramps and bleeding got progressively worse and I was back at the hospital early boxing day morning. They did another scan and found a lot of blood in my abdo cavity and they were quite sure that the pregnancy was ectopic. I had surgery a few hours later, and after a few rough days of recovery I'm finally home with my boys.

I'm still in shock really. Not sure how I feel. The BFP was such a surprise that it didn't have much time to sink before I found out I was having surgery and losing my tube as well.

What I was wondering is if there is anyone out there with positive stories of conceiving after having an ectopic? How long did you wait before you ttc again? Did you lose your tube as well? I will be going back on the pill and will probably wait a long time to wait before we try again. I'm too scared that this will happen again.

Thanks for your story Jenny smile It's great to hear something positive has come so soon after your loss. Still no BFP for us. My cycles have been a little erratic since the surgery. Last cycle was 35 days, and going by that AF would be due today, and she still hasn't arrived grin

Sorry to hear about your eptopic pregnancy, I had one 10 years ago.Since then I have had 2 wonderful children and 1 on the way, best of luck for the future.
Hello
i know I am a bit late in commenting here. But I had an ectopic pregnancy in 2009 my husband had just moved to NZ I was living in Ireland. I had only found out i was pregnant and was planning the move to be here with him.
I lost my left fallopian tube and was very ill for a time.
I still grieve for the baby I lost and was always fearful we would never be able to have children given my age(38)at the time and my health.
I always light a little candle around the due date my baby would have been born.
But here is the happy part - I moved down here and changed my life and got pregnant the following year 2010 (we weren't really trying and a funny story, an earthquake and a few other factors featured) I gave birth to my daughter last year. I worried myself sick until we were totally sure that the embryo had implanted in the correct place this time. We had an early scan and this put my mind at ease. I gave birth to a little girl last June almost 2 years to the date of my ectopic.
When my little girl turned 6 months I discovered I was pregnant again (all the fears came rushing back and again until we had that early scan I couldn't rest and the fear was always there) I am now 21 weeks pregnant and so far so good.
I will be 41 in June. I feel very lucky that we have been so fortunate that we are parents. And i can only wish you all the best and never give up hope. Believe me I was the statistic that doctors probably never held out any hope for and thought we would never have children. But here we are about to welcome number 2 into our lives. (My how they have changed for the better). Good luck with everything smile
Some women are more at risk than others of suffering with an ectopic pregnancy. Having an awareness can help identify those more at risk so that they can consult a doctor as soon as possible. Risk factors for ectopic pregnancy can be quite different.
