Hi, So nice to have found this website. I had my first ruptured ectopic pregnancy on the 21st of April this year. They removed my right side tube as it was too damaged. Very upsetting time. Eager to start trying again when can I try again? I have my 6 weeks check up with my consultant early June. I read that I should wait until after two periods - should I need to?
Hi! Very sorry to hear about your loss... it’s always a traumatic experience. If you only had surgery and no metothrexate, you could try again after your first proper period. The rule of waiting for two periods is for MTX injections as treatment. Hugs!
Hi again, so I’m back with some more questions:) No luck yet on the pregnancy side, it’s heartbreaking. I’ve been trying the last couple of months. I’ve noticed a difference in my periods since my ectopic pregnancy, days before my period and sometimes up to my period is due I would get a slight pain on my left side which may last for a few hours or just come and go? Anyone experience this? I never noticed this before until after the ectopic.
Also, how long did you wait to go see someone? I’ve had two successful pregnancies and then one miscarriage and straight after that an ectopic. Just want to be in control of the situation however I feel like I’m never going to get there. I feel my life lately is consumed about having another baby.
Also, what clinics would you recommend?
Feels great to be able to talk to someone as I feel the only help out here is this website following an ectopic.
oh dear the tic phase is cruel...i think if it makes you feel more in control, you should book an appointment and see what happens and what they say. We would not be able to recommend a clinic, but i would suggest to look up the ones that are available and do proper research, like looking at their stats, see what services they offer, what approaches (as natural as possible, to very hands on and throwing the kitchen sink at it) and you then make a decision. I will be very happy to help discussing with you what points are important for you. Having a plan is always a great thing!!
