Readers Respond: Have you had a tubal pregnancy?

Updated October 16, 2011

From the article: Tubal Pregnancy
A tubal pregnancy, also know as an ectopic pregnancy, is a very dangerous situation. Not only do you have to be concerned with the life of the baby, but also the mother and of future pregnancies. Sometimes you can treat an ectopic pregnancy with strong medications with many side effects, other times there is surgery. All of this can complicate your recovery. Share your story of tubal pregnancy. Did you have surgery? Did you have methotrexate? How far along were you? How did you find out that you had an ectopic pregnancy? Share Your Story

—Guest Scared k


My girlfriend had an ruptured ectopic last week, the surgeon suggested that the hcg level didn't match up with the ectopic, and said that she wouldn't touch the womb just in case there was another baby in there, Is this possible? How long do you leave it to do a test? Very unsure and would appreciate any opinions or advice please ladies, Thank you

surgery tomorrow

I had an ultrasound three Weeks ago. They did not see a sac. The doctor said it was just too early. A week later I started bleeding. My hcg levels had not risen appropriately so last week I had a d&c. This week my hcg levels went up drastically. The doctor said it must be eptopic. I go for the surgery in the morning.

feeling hopeless

After a few months of talking with my partner, we decided to have my Mirena IUD removed to try to conceive another child. I had my Mirena for almost 5 years and was very excited to get it taken out. We had a Mirena taken out of the beginning of October, we started trying immediately. Over the course of the next few months I seem to be having normal periods, getting my hopes up and then getting disappointed when I get my period, during this time I was feeling sick, nauseous, low energy, but not really having any reason to be that way. With my first pregnancy I was sick the whole time, I had constant morning sickness, but I figured every pregnancy is different from what I have read online from other mothers so I kept testing always getting a negative. I'm becoming convinced that I will never be pregnant I'll never have another child again. My partner is getting upset with my negativity at this time... Also during this time I am getting a lump looked at in my right breast, this has been a

Infertility sucks

I conceived a beautiful baby boy in 07. But since then it has been nothing but disappointment. My husband adopted my baby boy. I finally found a good man to build a family with. We tried for a year and nothing. Then we tried clomid. Clomid didn't work. We had exploratory surgery done. Turns out I have lots of scaring and only one good tube. So, we try IVF. We thought it was a for sure thing. Turns out it wasn't. We had a chemical pregnancy. This was one of the hardest things I have ever gone through. We did have frozen babies left to try and we were setting up for a FET. This Christmas I found out we conceived naturally. You can imagine how excited we were. On the first I went in for emergency surgery. The pregnancy was tubal. I was 6 weeks. I had light spotting and some pain in my rectum. No other signs. My good tube was removed. I am heartbroken. Why can't i do the one thing a women was meant to.

I had 2 etopic pregnancy in 02 and 2008

I went to the hospital telling my Doctor how I was felling pain. He just told me that early pregnancy is just like that, i was admitted many several time, but they could not notice that I have a ectopic pregnancy I end up having a rapture in my tube they removed the left tube after that the Doctor told me that I will never get children anymore cause the other tube is destroyed. I believed them but in year 2004 it was a miracle I became pregnant again I delivered my baby girl without any problem me and my husband we praised God for giving us a child again. in year 2008 I became pregnant again and I had again ectopic pregnancy then the right tube was removed again then the Doctor told us that we will never conceive cause all the tubes are tied up to now nothing is happening I got only 1 boy and 2 girls I wanted another boy again.
