I have a question...


My friend said she had to abort the baby today because it was "too close" to her fallopian tube. At first she said it was IN the tube, now she is saying that it wasn't in, that it was just too close... She was 8 weeks.

So my question is, what is it called when it's too close to the fallopian tube but not in it?
And also what kind of procedure would remove that? Would it be like a regular abortion, or laparascopy?
She sent me a picture of the sonogram, but she also said they couldn't find the baby in the ultrasound, so now I just don't know what she is even talking about.

Thanks in advance ladies.

i have no idea even i am confused over this thread xxx
i think your mate might be pulling your leg hun. the story contradicts itself in too many ways xxx
hopefully she is confused and not making up such lies as pregnancy/abortion is not something to lie about or to take so lightly. xx

Hi this actually happened to me so she could be telling the truth! An ectopic pregnancy is when a baby is developing anywhere outside of the uterus, however most ectopic pregnancies happen in the tube. So she may have been getting a little confused as to where it was, they can be in your ovary even.

My ectopic couldn't be seen on a scan both on my tummy and inserted (sorry tmi) as even at 8 weeks and especially outside of the uterus they might not b able to be seen. I was told by the surgeon I was at least 8 weeks pregnant and nothing but blood could be seen on my scan.

My tube ruptured and I had to have it removed by a laperscopy which is keyhole surgery done under general anestetic so if she had it done today she would still be in hospital!

Hope this helps xx

Thanks everyone. Well she said that it couldn't be seen with the ultrasound on her tummy, but it was seen with the one inserted.
I told her that ectopic pregnancies are removed with laparascopy and she said that they did it with the suction that they use to do abortions which is one of the reasons I think she is lying. She is also under age and they wouldn't do surgery on her without a parent there. (her mother didn't know she was pregnant)
On top of that, she said she didn't have insurance and would go to a free clinic. I told her they don't do surgery in free clinics and she said she went to a hospital because she applied for medicaid on Monday... Once again, she could not do this because she is under age and even if for some reason she qualified it would not take two days for her to get it.

I am pretty upset but I don't want to call her out on it without solid evidence? The thing is everything I point out, she has an answer for it. The part that has me feeling the most funny is that When she told me she was pregnant, I thought she might be lying for some odd reason. But I've known her for years, and told myself that if she ended up telling me she had a miscarriage, then I would know she was lying. And low and behold, she had an ectopic pregnancy.... supposedly.

I am saddened, hurt and angry if this is the case. Since I am WTT I was a bit jealous when she said she was pregnant, and guilty for feeling jealous. Then I was really excited for her. And now I am just confused.

I'm sorry hunny it does sound as if she's lying now as I've never heard of them correcting an ectopic with suction.

You seem to have good instincts so trust them! I think you have sufficient evidence to confront her but is that what you really want to do? Is there any reason she could be lying?

Xx

does sound a bit suspicious hun , i had a eptopic back in 2005 and they couldnt see baby on the ultrasound , luckily i was very early so my body re absorbed all the cells etc never heard of a baby being '' too close to the tube '' before ?

I can't believe someone would lie about such a thing. Not sure if I want to confront her, or just cut her out completely.
