For anyone who has had a methotrexate shot to clear an ectopic pregnancy, how long did it take for you to finally miscarry?

Although I had 4 ectopics I was treated with Metho just once. I do not recall pa__sing any tissue. I think if you are early enough to sucessfully treat an ectopic with Methotrexate it is intended for it to completely dissolve the pregnancy and your body should reabsorb it after it is broke down. It is so sad to think of the process. Especially as it is happening to you. I am very sorry for your loss. Please be extra carefull with this tube now, as it is succeptable to another ectopic. I wish someone had told me...Definaltely get a HSG test(especially if it is your only tube left) to make sure the tube is ok to use again, or requires surgury. I got pregnant again right away, and yes it was another ectopic and it was completely devestating. Best wishes to you.

I had a mc in October and though I had a d&c and my HCG levels were not that high (highest was 98) they would not go down. Doc determined that perhaps there was a tubal preg as well and administered the Metho shot. It took another 5 weeks for levels to return to normal. It is so hard, and having just been though it just in the last two months-I can relate. It made me so sick. I am sorry for your loss. I am wanting to try again but will wait another cycle or two just to make certain the drug is out of my system. It is a cla__s X drug (worst possible) and WILL cause future birth defects. I hope this helps...good luck!
