Worried about eptopic pregnancy

Me and partner have been ttc for 5 years without luck, I had a hsg year last month and they found I had a blocked tube and ivf would likely be the best option. So I’m very shocked now as I was due on my period 4 days ago and didn’t come on. I have done 2 pregnancy tests and both have been positive, I have been having a lot of discharge and also some pain so I keep thinking my period is coming. My period is very regular and every 28 days. I can’t help but think the tests are wrong and that I’m not pregnant, especially because I was told I wouldn’t conceive naturally! I was told by the consultant that I was at higher risk of having a eptopic if I ever did fall pregnant because of my blocked tube. I have pain on the right side and am worrying it’s because of eptopic pregnancy!

Hi hun, my experience of ectopic was, 3 weeks of unusual discharge/ brown bleeding. Sometimes it was a little but sometimes it occurred every time I wiped. I only had mild on/off pain. Then I had a sharp pains that would come and go. My bloods at the time I was diagnosed was 2450.

You need to speak to doctor/ midwife ASAP if you are worried.

Hopefully you are simply pregnant and nothing is wrong with your precious baby. Lots of love xxxx

Agreed. Speak with the Dr asap. I have been told that if you had an ectopic pregnancy you would definitely know about it. You would not be able to stand. It will not be impossible to get pregnant with one tube, just less easy.

Fingers crossed that you have a scan soon and can relax into your pregnancy xx

I had to have the methotrexate injection as baby was confirmed in my right tube at 7 weeks. Two weeks after that my tube ruptured and I had to have emergency surgery where I lost my tube. 😔

The pain was only sore for me when my tube was rupturing. I had been internally bleeding into my abdomen.

The consultant told me that all extopics can be different and they don’t always behave the way they should.

Let us know how you get on xxxx sending lots of love x

You don't always have unbearable pain, I had spotting from like 4 and a bit weeks and no pain, everyone is different xx

I just had mild pain and entered the theatre for an emergency while the tube was rupturing :/ I would suggest to contact your doctor or just pop in at the closer A&E (so you don't have to wait and you get your piece of mind). It might be to early to see something in the ultrasound, but worth checking!

I did read that usually there is nothing that can be seen until hcg is over 2000. I certainly found that too when I was being closely monitored earlier this year.

Once you have connected with your gp they will keep a very close eye on you.

I really hope it's not ectopic. But of course it is natural to worry xxx

During my ectopic pregnancy, I had bleeding and pain in the leg, but I know the most common symptom is pain to the shoulder. I had surgery as the beta level was steadily increasing, mine was 5500 when I had surgery.

Please get in touch with the Early Pregnancy Unit at your hospital, fingers crossed it's not an ectopic...

If you are at all worried please contact your GP/clinic ASAP as an ectopic can be life threatening for you. Xoxo

I’ve been to my gp who said it’s too early to be able to tell anyone and just to wait and see what happens. If I suddenly get bad pain then go to a&e. Not feeling very reassured xx

I’ve had 2 ectopics, one face pain like I was being stabbed up the bottom that was unbearable, and the other not really too much pain but I bled brown blood with both of them that looked like grit!

If you start to feel unwell in anyway, I also had really got flushes and felt sick and faint then please go straight to a&e. I really hope that this is not the case for you. The pain could be from your ovary just producing the hormones xx
