The official NHS advice is 6 months, it's because you have NO folate in your body after methotrexate and they want to make sure you have long enough to build your levels back up - as soon as your hcg reaches 0 out can start taking folic acid.

At 3 months, you would probably be okay, but is it really a risk worth taking? Neural tube defects aren't anything to mess with, imo.

Dazed- I know!!!!! I wanted to wait four months anyways before she recommended 6 months, which I think I'm going to do! Yes my levels were 1500 and dropped to 695 day 4 then 409 day 7! Going in tomrorow for blood so I'm hoping it continues to drop more!
Your levels dropped so quickly! That's great!

Loeylo- totally agree! I'm okay with waiting a little longer for ease of mind as well

Fair enough!
Yes I was shocked that it was down to almost 0 10 days after spotting. I had full on bleeding Fri-Sunday the week before. I thought it'd take way longer without mtx but hey ho. It's been really tough trying to find any other experiences of expectant management though so I was pretty in the dark about it all.

100 bag of opks arrived today 😂 no idea when I could ovulate. I'm technically cd 12 right now but more like CD 5 if going from HCG zero day.
Hope your HCG is back to normal soon !

Yes I did and they arrived super quick!

Will you be charting in the next few months to prep for ttc?

Yes! I started temping the last few days to see how things are going. My levels came back at 67 yesterday so I'm hoping to be at zero soon! I started at 1500 two weeks ago. I actually just ordered the pack of opk and pregnancy tests off amazon! So they will be here tomorrow!
I have never tempting before so I figure might as well get used to it! It's so hard to remember to do it every morning !
Have you tempted and tracked ovulation before?

Yep I've temped before. Was handy when going in for fertility check ups!
I got a positive opk today so fingers crossed I O soon! I'm on CD 19 if going by the first day I bled during the ectopic miscarriage but cd 14 if going by HCG 0 day which is pretty amazing!

How is everyone doing? I by some miracle managed to ov 19 days after the bleeding started and about 14 days after hcg zero. U thought it'd take a bit longer tbh.
My chart is looking good too!

I hope everyone else is recovering well and getting back to normal x

Hi!!!! Everything has been definitely going better ! I felt like oluvating right around the time my hcg levels were around 15 or so. I had pains again on my left side too! Which I hear is common when you ovulate after ectopic! I then started bleeding the Sunday of Labor Day! (Not sure if that was my real period or not? But it sure felt like it) I received MTX shot august 9 and went to HCG levels of 1 on sept 6!
I have be n tempting and apparently I ovulated again a week ago... which seems pretty early! So I think I may jsut be getting used to tempting etc.
how are you dazed?? How was your two week wait?
