Re: Anger or Jealousy? I'm confused

Hi Betty, I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I have been exactly where you are now; I had ectopic pregnancies in March 2017 and July 2019, and both were unplanned. In those times I could have written your exact words. It is such a confusing thing to experience. I also felt jealousy even though I ...

Re: second injection of methotrexate

I'm sorry you're going through this. Last year I had an ectopic with the copper coil. While my levels were never as high as yours (my first injection was at 220), for the first 7 days after that injection, I continued to double every 48hrs. I got the second injection a week later and it worked. I dr...

Re: Want to do an HSG/HyCoSy even though not trying

Hi there, I just had my second ectopic, both were unplanned, and I am not currently trying to conceive but am planning to in about 2 years. I had the same question for my doctor, and she also did not want to do this testing. She told me that the reason was the test would only show if my tubes LOOK h...

methotrexate

I am currently experiencing my second ectopic, but am being treated with methotrexate for the first time. I had my first injection yesterday. The only instructions I received from my doctor were to stop taking vitamins. Is there anything else you ladies did or were told to do to help the process alo...

Re: Post Ectopic therapy

Hi there, I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter's losses. This board has been invaluable for me in the healing process and I hope your daughter uses it as well. After my ectopic, I went through Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. I'm not going to pretend to know the deta...

Re: Ectopic Unplanned Pregnancy

Hi there, I also experienced an ectopic pregnancy while using an IUD about a year and a half ago. I would really recommend you seek out some sort of counseling. I waited almost a year to try it and I wish I had done it much sooner than I did. I have a very supportive partner, family, and friends, bu...

Re: Ectopic pregnancy with copper coil

I had it removed when I found out about the pregnancy. I just used condoms for a while afterwards as I have problems using hormonal birth control. For various reasons that didn't work for me either so I got another copper IUD about 9 months after my ectopic and have used it ever since. Deciding on a...

Re: Ectopic pregnancy with copper coil

Hi Carys111, Last year I had an ectopic pregnancy with a copper IUD. I went to the ER about a week after I found out I was pregnant with slight bleeding and cramps. They weren't able to give me a certain diagnosis, but because it was an unplanned pregnancy, I decided to do an exploratory surgery whe...

Re: Can't process

Hi Chloe, The same thing happend to me. IUD failure. I took a pregnancy test, because I was having pregnancy symptoms, and it was positive. I was worried about an ectopic because of the IUD so I went to the doctor that day. They were unconcerned, but went over warning signs with me. I chose abortion...

Re: Not sure if I'm allowed to grieve and how to deal with i

Hayley, It's good to hear an update from you, and I'm glad that you are focusing on the other milestones in your life. I also really struggled at the 9 month point. That is when I started seeing a counselor which has been incredibly helpful. She has really helped me sort some of my feeling out. I ju...

Re: Feeling guilty - found out at abortion clinic

Hi Ulorin, I am so sorry to hear about the difficult time you are having. Although I didn't find out my pregnancy was ectopic at an abortion clinic, that was my first stop after I found out I was pregnant. I scheduled my termination but never made it to that appointment as I wound up in the ER a few...

Due Date

My due date for my ectopic pregnancy is coming up next week and I'm feeling pretty anxious about it. I feel like I want to do something to mark the day but am struggling to come up with anything that feels right. Has anyone else done something to help them get through their due dates?

Re: Not sure if I'm allowed to grieve and how to deal with i

I love the puzzle piece idea, I think that is really sweet. I got a tattoo a couple months ago, it is an arrow with a heartbeat in the middle of it. The whole process was very therapeutic for me. I hope you are both doing well and have a great day :)

Thanks, Libertyke, I know we will figure it out, I think it just freaked me out that he kept that to himself for so long, and then went away without us being able to talk about it. He comes home tonight and I'm excited :D Hayles, thank you for sharing your story with us. It is strangely comforting t...

Re: Not sure if I'm allowed to grieve and how to deal with i

Thanks so much for the reply. No, we haven't talked about it since. This happened the day before he left on a camping trip with his dad and won't be home until tomorrow. That was both good and bad timing, I think. Yes, he has mentioned countless times that he feels guilty. Of course he shouldn't fee...

This might be TMI...but I really need some advice about making sex fun again. :oops: Ever since my surgery,...
