michelle - March 3

i had an eptopic, i was on holiday in the maldives, the day i got there i started bleeding (had only just finished what i thought was a period), i bled for a whole week with pain but i thought it was my irratible bowel playing up, i took painkillers to ease the pain so i could carry on as normal, i was on clomid so chances were high of being pregnant but to be on the safe side i done 2 pregnancie tests which were negative before i went, i had no symtoms of being pregnant whatso ever. on the 7th day of bleeding and pain i couldn't stand up straight and could hardly walk they rushed me to the nearest hospital(2 hour boat ride) and took me straight in for a scan which showed 2 litres of blood swimmingin my abdomen, it still wasn't confirmed until they done a blood test , another pregnancy test was negative! i was rushed into theatre and they operated and luckily saved my tube, i was in intensive care for 4 days and the gynae said i was a walking dead women , he couldn't believe i was still alive from all the blood i had lost and said i would've died in my sleep if i hadn't of gone.. please don't ignore any signs , i hid the pain with painkillers which was so silly, but i never wanted to ruin my holiday if i was in the uk i would've gone straight to the hospital!!! i don't think many people know how life threatening it can be.
