Could this be a second ectopic?

Post by Critter1066 »

I’ll try and keep this as brief as poss. Warning, It will include gross details.

I had an ectopic pregnancy with removal of my left tube in May this year. We recently decided to try again.

On Monday I got a squinter. Wednesday definite positive pregnancy test. Yesterday I did a digital- negative. Upon wiping afterwards I had orangey pink watery discharge/blood. Test was negative. Got home and a [Brand Name not allowed] test was also negative. Assumed I should wait for a period like bleed.

26 hours later, tests still negative. I am still having very watery, stringy, brown/rust/yellow loss. No cramps. Only on wiping, nothing on my pad.

At first I thought chemical. Now I am concerned as the only time I have had discharge or blood like this was with my previous ectopic. I should be 4+2.

Yesterday the EPU said to wait a week and test again. I don’t feel comfortable with this as last time I felt fine right up until I suddenly wasn’t.

Does anyone have any advice, a similar story etc? Thanks so much.

Dear Critter1066,
I'm sorry you are going through this confusing time.
If your symptoms persist, I would advise speaking to your GP who maybe able to order blood hCG levels which will give you a definitive answer. In the meantime, I would advise seeking urgent medical advice with any abdominal pain, worsening bleeding, shoulder tip pain or feeling dizzy and unwell.
Sending much love,
