Yes mam. Apparently I had old scar tissue on my right tube (possibly from my first c section) and they are fairly certain that is what caused my ectopic. I wish you the best of luck! I have heard the HSG test can actually clear your tubes pretty well! I am hoping that is the case for you.

Hey guys can I join?

I had my first ectopic that ruptured in 2007. I was young and dumb, but I still new something wasn't right because I bled the whole time. When they found it, it was about to rupture, but I had to wait for the surgery for another woman whose had already. By the time I got into surgery mine had too (go figure). They repaired the tube and sent me on my way. The next day I was rushed to the er and had to have the same surgery again because not everything was sewn up correctly and I had internal bleeding...fun!

After about 4 years of trying dh and I decided to get help. The dr sent me right to have an hsg done which showed a blocked right tube, which I already knew. We got pregnant that cycle which ended up ectopic again, so my new Dr removed it along with my right tube on April 25, 2014. I tracked my cycles for 2 months with opks and she gave me clomid for the 3rd cycle and we got pregnant! And now I have a beautiful little girl who is about to be 11 months old, born on April 25, 2015. Exactly 1 year later

2 months after having her I got pregnant again, but was (cannot remember the name of it for the life of me) unviable. There was a sack and a placenta, but no baby. Had to have laprascopic surgery again at 12 weeks since I wasn't miscarrying on my own and I had a grapefruit sized cyst on my ovary.

So here I am. CD5 of month 1 ttc #2. If nothing happens 's by June when I'm due for my yearly visit I'm going to ask my Dr for clomid again. She told me clomid is good at targeting a functioning side to ovulate from. I will be using opks until then and walk in prepared if we are unsuccessful by then.


Sorry for the book

Hey and welcome! Of course you can join! Wow, it sounds like you have had a tough journey as well. By the time I finally had surgery my tube had long since ruptured and I think he said I had 3 or 4 cups of internal bleeding. It was severe. I was very close to dying. I am honestly thankful to be alive. I hope your journey is short and without any issues! Feel free to update in here as often as you like. I am not telling any friends or family we are trying for a final baby so this group is really all I have. I have told one friend outside of bnb but we actually met here.

I have actually told a few people this time. I didn't the first time and suffered in silence. I think I'm going to try soy iso next cycle just to see what happens.

I hope everyone here doesn't have any further issues. I think the surgery is worse than a miscarriage imo. Instead of seeing blood you prep for hours (usually) knowing the outcome and when you wake up its the worst feeling. Hopefully our lack of tunes doesn't hinder any of us!

Has anyone else here used clomid?

I have no experience here with clomid but maybe someone else can chime in? I agree, surgery was hard. My ectopic surgery and loss was one day before my husband's birthday. However, our daughter whom we conceived one month after our loss, was born one month early, on Father's Day.

Hey Mod19, welcome to this small group. Sounds like you have had quite the journey. Good luck this time around. I have also heard Clomid is good to help essentially trick the correct ovary to ovulate. I've also heard your good tube can pick up the egg even from the other ovary. So you all have an excellent shot.

My remaining tube is blocked so I'm not sure what all my options are besides IVF. I don't have an appointment until May with the RE where we'll discuss everything. Based on where it's blocked at I don't think there are many options which is frustrating.

And I agree surgery was hard. You not only have to deal with a loss but also with the potential for it to affect your future fertility and that's a lot to handle all at once. Plus it sounds like everyone here had an extra hard time before surgery because of misdiagnosis, doctor error, or from having to wait for surgery.

Before my ectopic I was much more trusting of doctors (when I managed to go at all) and now I like to get second or third opinions and have learned to trust my gut more.

I couldn't agree with you more about trusting your own gut when it comes to doctors and diagnosees. I really hope things work in your favor, I will certainly be keeping you in my thoughts.

Completely agree!

I've been lucky enough to find a Dr that is sympathetic and gets me in asap after a positive test. She does early scans with me until a heartbeat is detected. With my last loss I called about brown spotting and she said to come right in for a reassurance scan.

It sucks that Ivf may be your only option. I'm sorry, I can't even imagine how that must feel. May seems so far away, but it'll be here before you know it and will be able to move forward. I'm not sure where you're located, but there are a few states that are required to offer infertility insurance. Of course it's something you have to obtain on your own, but I'm sure it's better than covering everything out of pocket. I started looking into it before I met my current dr, and the one before her was quick to mention a fertility specialisr. Ugh. Men should not be in that profession.

So, I know the odds of me being pregnant right off the pill at age 35 with one tube are slim to none but I thought I would just make note.. I am having the same weird symptoms this month as I did when I got pregnant with my last daughter. Headaches, some back pain now, and my nose is all stuffy like I am getting a cold but not really. Then this morning I had an odd pregnancy dream. I had two of those before I found out I was pregnant with Alice. Again, not reading much into this, just thought it was interesting.
