Re: Heart is broken...

i had over 3 losses but even so, with perseverance my family was formed and my heart is healing. Time heals. I am sorry for your losses. 1 loss is too many, and Uncertainty is very difficult. One day this will be behind you, hang in there.

Re: I could have died? anyone else struggling with this?

It occurred to me that if it were 1900 I would have died. I suppose I came close even so for ep#1. But even though my vitals were lost twice(!) I didn't have the instinct that I was dying, I considered the possibility while lying there semi conscious and was ok with it. Don't get me wrong, I am thri...

Re: Disappointed with Ectopic care

Celine, I think in general this society discourages women from being angry. I am sorry for your treatment (or lack thereof) trauma. It would be great to hold medical care accountable. Instead of - the dr's and staff are doing their best - to ensure they have the education and tools to do the best. E...

Re: ectopic pregnancy a couple years on..

I used the online ovulation tracking tool and conceived with one tube 18 cycles after my ep. With the tracker I knew I was timing it correctly, but like I said, we clearly had other things going on (unexplained). I am not sure if there are diet changes, etc. that could reduce your endometriosis. I t...

Re: Disappointed with Ectopic care

Thankfully with MTX many women today are helped without surgery or trauma, but obviously the "industry" has a ways to go, for timely diagnosis and treatment. For me, even the emergency room treatment was delayed because the regular doctor claimed "separation pain" common with MTX, thankfully the eme...

Re: ectopic pregnancy a couple years on..

It took me on average 12 months to conceive (unexplained) - as little as 2 months and much as 24 months. I kept hoping the next one would work, but with difficulty conceiving combined with early pregnancy loss (unexplained), eventually I ran out of time - started TTC at 31 and turned to IVF at 38. I...

Re: Disappointed with Ectopic care

I hear you. With my eps I had no pain at all (until rupture with the 1st). My 1st ep, 1st doctor did delayed diagnosis and then I was called "the ectopic" at the office - further indicated their lack of experience. I can find online decision charts that show mine was mismanaged (sent home at 6w with...

Re: C section scar pregnancy

I hope someone with that specific experience responds. In the meantime, both my eps lagged - low hCG, but started growing, so they measured 3-4w behind. My hCG continued to increase so treatment was sooner than later (in my case MTX shots to start). Yesterday I was told my ep is likely a defect of m...
