Thank you ladies for sharing your stories and thoughts. It always helps so much to know what others have been through. I am just sorry that these things have happened to you all. X
I was also told my body would take care of it by itself, so I suspect that it is because my hcg levels are now finally dropping. They kept monitoring me when they did rise but it was very slow so they were not sure. I think if the baby is growing in the tube or if it ruptures you need surgery, but in my case it was never going to get that far
It sounds like the bleeding will probably continue for a while longer then, I really just wish I could see the end in sight or know when it might stop, otherwise it just feels like it is going on forever.
the only way to stop the bleed more quickly is if you get the methrexate shot,
but then you also can't ttc for 3 months, so in that light it's really better to just let
your body do what it is supposed to do
Thanks hun, that is a good way of looking at it. I know it will stop eventually, it's just like a constant reminder. It is starting to look a bit more brown now after 4 weeks so fingers crossed for holiday.
I'm really sorry to hear you're going through this! I had something quite similar...I was told I'd had a miscarriage around mid-May, and was monitered with weekly blood tests. They started dropping, but then rose. I was told I could "wait & watch" but since I don't live near a hospital (1.5 hours away) I had a shot of methotrexate. It still took 6 weeks for hcg to reach 0, but we've been told we can start trying again after one AF.
I hope everything sorts itself out for you, and know that you're not alone.
I have had 2 ectopics, both needing emergency surgery to remove tubes.
Sometimes levels can drop then rise with ectopics so please be careful. I was very much let down by the NHS with my 2nd ep as i went there so very early and they still left it to critical stage. I would not be going abroad with a ectopic intill a scan shows a clear tube. U are still at risk of infection even if u are managing to expel the pregnancy yourself.
I am sorry u are going through this xxx
Well yesterday my hcg was finally at 7. The bleeding is much lighter now and brown, so was feeling much happier about the situation. Then this morning I woke up at 3.30am with severe pain on my right side, really low down, more like a groin pain that spread down my leg and really hurt if I applied any pressure, like walking on my right leg! I was convinced something had happened. Went to A and E with hubby and had another blood test. Spoke to gynae doctor who said it was probably free fluid in the peritonial cavity which can cause pain. They gave me strong pain killers & sent me home! All the docs know I'm going abroad and seem quite happy with it, but might just go to epu one more time this week, esp if I get any more pain.
