Re: Coronavirus and ectopic pregnancy

Hi all, My husband and I had decided to TTC first chance we got after our ectopic. Then covid-19 happened. After lots of thought we decided to go for it as despite the wonderful successful stories on here, it could take longer (65% chance 18 months of trying I think). We have been trying and so far ...

Re: Recovering from the trauma/ going back to work

Hi lovely, I'm sorry to be reading your awful experience. Im 7 weeks post op and have only just gone back to work. I was signed off originally for 3 weeks but upon my return to work meeting I soon realised I wasnt ready. The closer it got to my first day back the more anxious I felt. I'm a teacher s...

Re: Both tubes gone

Hi lovely, I'm so sorry to be reading about your news. Although I haven't experienced what you've been through (7 weeks post op and right tube gone), I know quite a few people who have had to go down the IVF route. Dont lose hope as I've heard of many success stories. It does take a lot out of you t...

Re: Tips for recovery

Hi there, I'm coming up to 4 weeks post op now and am only just beginning to deal with the emotionally element of what weve been through. I spent the first two weeks focusing entirely on getting over the operation, I didnt acknowledge the loss of my right tube or baby. My advice is cry when you need...

Re: Completely broken

I completely understand your pain. I had a missed miscarriage and my sister in law was pregnant. We were 1 month apart and it still hurts seeing what she has and I dont. I try to be happy for her but I still have bad days. Then I recently suffered an ectopic pregnancy and have just discovered my cou...

Re: Ovulation pain?

It is really helpful thank you. I'm also showing white discharge which I always get after ovulation which is how I know this pain must have been that. You're right about it being comforting although because it's my right side, I worry about when I'll ovulate on my left side. I know it's silly as nee...

Re: Tightness / Pain during ovulation

Although I haven't had a cycle yet after my ectopic, I have also experienced pain on the side where my tube was removed. It's got me to thinking whether I've ovulated on my right side again and worry if I'll ovulate on my left side in future. I worry as weve never had issues getting pregnant (I just...

Ovulation pain?

Hi, This is my first time posting, although I have commented on a couple of posts. I'm 3 weeks post op from having my right tube removed after an ectopic pregnancy which started bleeding at 6 weeks and 3 days. Over the weekend I started to experience a dull ache and the occasional sharp wave of pain...

Re: Ectopic or not? In a state of limbo

Hi, I'm sorry to be reading what you're going through. I had exactly the same experience. Went for a scan at 5 weeks and they couldn't see anything, hcg levels doubled over 48 hours so had another scan a few days after that. It was during that second scan where they confirmed the ectopic pregnancy. ...
