I'm so glad I found this forum. It helps to read everyone's stories and know the possibilities are still there in the future. I didn't even know I was pregnant because I stopped birth control and was just bleeding for 3 weeks around the time my menstraion begins. I was concerned also becaus eI had pains but when i went to the doctor they didnt know what it was. I called my gyno she scheduled an ultrasound and said everyhting was fine as well. So I just dropped it until at work I couldnt move, the pain was so bad I went to the ER nearly pa__sing out..and they told me what was going on there. I was in shock and rushed for surgery. My tube and ovary were removed, they said my tube burst earlier and I was lucky I wasnt bleeding so much. I couldnt understand why this happened since I already have a 9 yr old son and it took me so much time to move on. I really am concerned about fertility for I do plan on having atleast one more child in the the next few years but am afraid now it wont happen. Reading all these stories gives me hope. Does anyone know if the chances are the same with one tube being removed and both ovaries vs. having the right tube and ovary removed? they said my other side looked good. I wish all of you mothers the best of luck in having a future healthy pregnancy..I look forward to your updates and I hope its all good encouraging news

Hi, I am going through what it soiunds like many people on here have been through and I need some rea__sutance or guidance...Something:( In October of 2011 I found out I was having an ectopic pregnancy. I had methotrexate (SP?) on October 8th. My numbers were going down and everything was a__sumed to be fine. On Oct. 26 I had an ultrasound because of slight pain I had the day before only to find out the pregnancy was still there clotting and it had doubled in size. I was rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery where I had my right tube removed. We found out I was pregnant on March 15, 2012 and I thought everything was fine. My numbers were looking alright and then I had a scheduled ultrasound last Friday. Nothing showed up was told I was too early so I went back yesterday for a repeat and sure enough it was in my left tube:( I am on methotrexate again so I know we have to wait to try again, but what are my chances of getting pregnant? What comes next? I have had 5 pregnancies total. Two miscarriages, a beautiful; baby girl, and these two ectopics. I just want my daugther to have a sibling and I want to try again, but I am also emotionally drained and not sure where else to turn when it comes to next steps. My doctor wanted to a__sume the first one was a fluke so we never talked about help if it did happen again. Now that it has happened again I cannot stop thinking our loss and the possibility of not being able to give mhy daughter a brother or sister. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!!! JS

Hi...I needed some where to write down how I'm feeling. In 4 years I have lost 3 babies. I had 2 ectopic pregnancies and one miscarriage. My last tubal I had to lose my right tube and lost so much blood. I am dealing with all the pain and with each one it just keeps getting worse. It has only been 2 months since my last tubal and tomorrow my little sister is having her 2nd baby. Everyone is so happy and expect me to feel the same way. No one understands that I am in so much pain that I cant stand even looking at her with her big belly. I feel horrible for feeling this way but I cant seem to shake it off. Me and my husband want a child of our own so bad. I feel less of a women. I feel like its my fault this keeps happening. I feel like he should have married someone who could have given him kids. I hope one day that this pain will lessen. It just too much is going on and I cant deal with my own pain... :(

I'm sorry this happened to you. I had ectopic pregnancy in March and I can understand how you feel. While I was hospitalized, it was emotionally really hurtful to see two of my doctors with big bellies, which just reminded me how much I have lost, in addition to all the physical pain. but I hope you will talk to your husband about how you feel. I said the same thing to my husband today. So many news of friends' pregnancy or delivery come to me lately. I just can not be that happy for them. and I feel bad about this. I think it is unfair to my husband too. I'm 34, old enough to worry about future fertility. But my husband told me, for how much he loves kids, having a child is not the most important thing. He Loves ME. I'm sure your husband will let you know this. Good luck to all of us who have experienced this!

Over the last few months I've read through all the comments on here, and my heart goes out to all of you. I had an ectopic pregnancy on 5-26-12. I had been bleeding for a month before I realized I was even pregnant. I went to Planned Parenthood after two weeks of bleeding (because I hadn't yet received cards from my new insurance company), and they didn't even give me a pregnancy test. They just said it was hormones and told me to take ibuprofen (bad advice, glad I didn't listen!) One of my friends mentioned that maybe I was pregnant. I took a home test and it came out positive. My bf and I were happy for a day, until I called my new doctor and she told me to come in immediately. They drew blood, took ultrasounds, and couldn't find the baby, so they sent me to the ER. More blood drawn, several more ultrasounds, and still they were puzzled that I wasn't in any pain and unsure if I was having an ectopic pregnancy. Finally they had to do exploratory surgery, first giving me a partial abortion to test the tissue of my uterus, and then cutting me open and removing the embryo and part of my left fallopian tube. It took me a long time to wrap my head around this, and while I'm thankful to be alive, and grateful to my supportive bf & family, I still can't see any good that came from this experience. Now I am pregnant again, end of 4th week going on 5th week. There's no bleeding, no pain, so far they have done 2 blood tests (the 2nd was this morning - I'm still waiting on the results) & 1 ultrasound. At first the doctor who did my ultrasound said he couldn't see anything, but after he realized my history of ectopic pregnancy, he said there may be signs of an ectopic pregnancy. I really hope he is just being overly cautious. I have another appointment tomorrow and I'm going out of my mind waiting. I keep googling whether it's possible to have an ectopic pregnancy without any bleeding/pain. I really want to be positive and optimistic, but I won't be able to breathe easy until I see my baby inside of my uterus.

I just wanted to do a followup to my post from 2 days ago - at the time the doctors told me my hcg levels were too low (700s) and they couldn't see anything on my US, so they were concerned I was having a 2nd ectopic (first was end of May this year). Yesterday my hcg levels jumped to 7,000s & they are able to see a lil embryo sack in my uterus. It's still very early, I'm a lil over 5 weeks :) And the doctors are still cautious, but they said without knowing my previous history, it would seem that everything looks good and normal this time. Once you have dealt with an ectopic the wait to get pregnant and make sure it's a healthy pregnancy is excruciating, but I know that during the wait I constantly read through these posts looking for good news & hope, and I want everyone who goes through this to know that it is possible, and no matter how much bad luck and pain you go through, and how pessimistic the doctors seem, you can still go on to have a healthy pregnancy. My prayers are with all of you.

good news for you, I had an ectopic pregnancy and had an internal bleeding, they even gave e 24 hours to live if I didn't have the operation. they remove the tube and my ovary was destroy.after 6 month I got pregnant again and my daughter is 5 years old, I think it depends on the body how it answer to the pregnancy.

Hello i need some help i have been married for 10 years next month i have been pregnant once in my entire life back in feb of 2008 it turned out to be an ectopic pregnancy and lost my left tube i have seen obgyn and had dye testing done to see if their was any blockage and there wasn't and my husband had been test and everything is good with him we just can't seem to get pregnant please can anyone help 


annapowell - July 17

getting pregnant after tubal pregnancy can be difficult and there are risks. Ectopics are often caused by scarred fallopian tubes which cause the early embryo to get stuck in the tube before it reaches the uterus. Sometimes tubal pregnancy can cause significant damage to the inner lining of the tube. wait for a few months for the damaged area to heal and then try. IVF must be the next option in row
