Re: Coronavirus and ectopic pregnancy

Hi LittleP27 I’m so sorry to hear your fertility appointment has been postponed, that must be so frustrating. I heard they’re starting to work through the backlog of routine appointments now so hopefully it won’t be too much longer for you. I didn’t have any assessments or treatments after the ectop...

Re: Coronavirus and ectopic pregnancy

Hi I’m so sorry to hear of your losses that’s devastating for you. Yes, I had two ectopics too. My left tube ruptured from an undiagnosed ectopic and the whole tube was removed. As it had taken such a long time to conceive we only waited six weeks to try again. I couldn’t believe it when I tested po...

Re: Coronavirus and ectopic pregnancy

Just to reassure you a bit, with my successful pregnancy I had awful pains on one side from about three to five weeks pregnant and I was so worried about it being a third ectopic. But it wasn’t, it was from the corpus luteum cyst from where I ovulated. Of course one sided pain when pregnant shouldn’...

Re: Coronavirus and ectopic pregnancy

Good luck to you too, that’s really exciting for you! How are you feeling about trying again? My period is due in about five days. I’ve been having twinges on one side which I’m trying really hard not to analyse. It’s so hard, on the tiny chance that I am pregnant this cycle I keep thinking, well it...

Re: Coronavirus and ectopic pregnancy

I’m so sorry to hear these stories of having to ouch ectopics alone, that must have been so scary. But the NHS is incredible and I’m so glad you had nurses or doctors there to support you both medically and emotionally. We’ve decided to try again and see what happens. My period is due in a week and ...

Re: Coronavirus and ectopic pregnancy

Thanks all that’s really useful to hear your decisions around this. I’m unsure what to do. I’m currently on my period and would like to ttc this month (although I have a coil fitted so no idea if I’d be able to get that removed, presumably not?) but I’d be nervous about potentially catching the viru...

Coronavirus and ectopic pregnancy

Is anyone deciding whether to try to conceive during the pandemic? I’ve had two ectopic pregnancies, followed by our little miracle. We had originally planned to try and get pregnant again around now (my little boy is 14 months old) but we’re not sure whether to wait given the pressures on the NHS a...

Re: The best news after two ectopic pregnancies

I’m so pleased this was helpful. We’re now making the difficult decision of whether to try again for a second baby. It seems such a risk but I also would love a little sibling for my little boy, especially as it took us such a long time to have our son. I should follow you own advice but it’s also r...

The best news after two ectopic pregnancies

I just wanted to share a story of hope with you. After nearly a year of trying to get pregnant, in October 2017 my left Fallopian tube ruptured due to an ectopic pregnancy and I had emergency surgery to have the whole tube removed. 8 weeks later I found out I was 4 weeks pregnant again. We were abso...

Re: Confused - tubal abortion / milking Fallopian tube!?

Thank you for your kind words! We’re so happy about this pregnancy and feel so incredibly lucky. I must admit that I have really high anxiety that something will go wrong. I was feeling really really sick and exhausted between weeks 5 and 10, but I’m starting to feel better. I’m really hoping this i...

Re: Confused - tubal abortion / milking Fallopian tube!?

Hi, I’m so sorry for your loss, it sounds like you’ve been through a horrible time. I had a tubal abortion which was milked out. The surgeon said there was minimal damage. Mine is a little different because it was my second ectopic and my other tube had been removed 8 weeks previously. But I’m absol...

Re: Pregnant again after two ectopics

Thought people might like an update. I’m now 8 weeks pregnant and we had a scan and saw a beautiful heartbeat. It’s still early (I won’t relax until I’m 12 weeks and all continues to look ok!) But seeing the heartbeat was incredible and I feel so lucky this baby is in the right place. There’s hope f...

Re: Pregnant again after two ectopics

Thanks Hayley. Also, meant to say on your previous point on IVF risk - yes I’m not sure how much difference it makes if you’ve had one ectopic. I *think* the risk of ectopic for any woman who’s had IVF is around 5%, and the risk from natural conception is 10-20%. So I think it’s a bit less risky, bu...

Re: Diagnosed and treated while away from home

I’m so sorry for your loss. I was in the same position, although based in England so a bit different. I was visiting my parents 3 hours away from home. My husband had to go back to work, and it was horrible going through that without him. I’m sorry to say that my doctor recommended I didn’t travel u...

Re: Pregnant again after two ectopics

Thank you Beenie, that’s really kind. I even have pretty bad pains on my side, but they’ve said it’s the cyst from where I ovulated. Just can’t believe it!

Re: Pregnant again after two ectopics

I had a scan today and they saw a gestational sac in the right place!!!! I can't believe it! No yolk sac or fetal pole yet, but they said they wouldn't realy expect to see this at 5 weeks. And they're being really cautious (apparently you can have a pseudo-sac from an ectopic and it's impossible to ...

Re: Pregnant again after two ectopics

Hayley - I’m so sorry for your loss. The same thing happened to me: my first ectopic was misdiagnosed as a miscarriage. I saw three doctors to say I thought I was still pregnant but I was ignored until eventually I ended up in A&E when my tube ruptured. You need to give yourself time to heal before ...

Re: Pregnant again after two ectopics

Beenie - we waited five months. The doctor recommended at least three months (I had a shot of methotrexate after surgery because sadly the surgeon accidentally left a bit of pregnancy tissue behind so my hcg started to rise again). Originally I was determined that we wouldn’t try again naturally but...
