i was 6 weeks pregnant and my hcg levels didnt go higher than 230..i had an u/s and found out it was an ectopic pregnancy..stayed in hospital overnight and the following day was given 1 shot of the methotrexate..i hope it works with not too much side effects, i dont want to have any surgical precedures..im 28 and this was our first pregnancy..about 11 years ago i was diagnosed with pelvic inflammatory desease so i know for a fact that had everything to do with it (according to google)..i will be getting my medical records next week to go through the procedure i had to see what they exactly did and hopefully how well they did it..im hoping that my tubes werent badly scarred because i dont want to go through it again even though my chances have increased alittle having one already...apparantly we can start trying again in 3 months, i hope the methotrexate will be out of my system then..wish us luck :)

Let us know what you find out from that report. A number of women here have gone to have successful pregnancies after an ectopic pregnancy so hang in there :)

i took my medical report to my GP and asked him to explain it to me.. i had an idea of what they did to me but needed to be sure..the operation report showed several findings..this is what they found...fluid in pelvis, uterus-acutely inflammed and a few adhesions from previous PID ? i wasn't aware that i had any PID symptons before so it must have been a very mild case to begin with and didn't need to go to any doctor for...they injected my left and right fallopian tubes with ink to see if they were blocked or not and apparantly my tubes and ovarys are ok..they ended up doing a peritoneal washout procedure to flush out the infection..i have no idea where they found the scar tissue or how many exactly but all findings were consistent with the PID...i asked him if there was a procedure where they could see exactly where they are and he told me that another laparascopy could infact cause more adhesions so i won't be finding that out in a hurry..the ectopic pregnancy i had was in my left tube so i don't know if the right one has any scar tissue or not...we will have to wait and see..here's to hoping and praying... :H i hope this has helped, i wouldn't have known any of this if it wasn't for the good old internet.. :)

Well, add me to people praying for you. Hopefully everything goes smoothly the next time. It is good news that you know all this so that you can remain closely monitored. Knowing those tubes and ovaries are okay is really good news as well!

its been two weeks since the methotrexate shot and my levels are below 5 now...so i might start taking folic acid next week and give my body a few months to heal before we start ttc again...my levels were very low to start off with so the shot worked with little side-effects...apparantly it leaves your body after 48 hours however alittle still remains, its all confusing to me...i just hope that it is completly gone when we try and have a healthy pregnancy if we can...good luck to all i wish you all the very best :)

well i thought i would share what has been happening so far...i saw my doctor today and he told me that both my tubes are definetly scarred from the infection i had many years ago...april the 10th will be 2 mths since the metho shot and he has given us the go ahead to ttc in a months time..he has also mentioned a few other things that got me worried but you know doctors always giving you the worst scenario case..if i have another ectopic pregnancy he says that i should remove the tube and to start thinking about IVF...he also metioned removing both tubes for IVF because there is a chance the egg could migrate back in them, its a very small percentage but it happens...its a very big decision to make so i wont be making that one up in a hurry thats for sure...praying that all goes well for us in the next few months :H and hoping that we wont need to make those decisions for our future, however i know that this is all out of my hands and as much as i hate hearing it i know that i am going to have to be patient and to wait and see..i will keep you posted :)

Sascha, hopefully everything works out this next time and you won't have to make any of those decisions.

I'll be keeping a watch for your updates!

:)8 Congratulations! I will be praying for you that you get positive results this time around. I know of many women who've had an ectopic and went on to have normal pregnancies. I hope you can be added to my list.

Congratulations Sascha! I just read your story and am crying tears of joy for you right now. I too suffered an ectopic with my first pregnancy ever and am hopeful the next egg will find it's way to my uterus too!

I've still got about another month to wait before ttc again, but I'm counting down the days!

What a miracle! I'm so happy for you!!!

Oh that is good news! I think once any woman has a miscarriage or miscarriage scare, pregnancy changes. It is tough not to worry. You have some great news though and I am just so happy for you!

I was just diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy and took the Mexo shot today. Reading your story has really inspired and encouraged that future prgnancies are possible. You may already be holding your little one now and I wish you and your family many blessings.

Yay Sascha! I am so happy for you. I bet he is just such a beautiful little guy too. Did I already say that I am so happy for you! I really am.

Thank you so much for the updates. Unfortunately, too many pregnancies here end in miscarriage. Women need to know they can go on to have a successful pregnancy and that there is that opportunity to experience that joy. So, thank you!
