Hi all, i would like to tell you all about my heartache. I have my second embyo transfer in july and got a positive test, the 2nd hcg did not double and they told me to stop all meds! I asked to carry on incase it would work they said no and to have a withdrawal bleed. I bleed on and off for 4 weeks which was not normal i called my clinic twice as it did not feel right but no pain. They said it is common. My gp sent me to have a ultrasound as i was flying that week on holiday. The lady scanning said she could see something but was not sure, i got worried and called my clinic to see someone. I went for the appointment and had scans and bloods and they told me its a suspected ectopic pregnancy i was so shocked as i had no symptoms at all and my hcg was 400 😨. They told me the next day to go to EPU and it was confirmed it was 100% ectopic pregnancy measuring 11 weeks ans 5 days. The next few days after was running back to EPU and they decided i needed an emergency surgery and they it said they will try and save the tube, which meant we could not go on holiday. The shock and trauma from all this has set me and my husband back. My husband has been in contact with the clinic to get answer why the aftercare was so poor even when i called 2 to tell them something is not right. When i get pregnant again i will make sure i go to the EPU 1st and following weeks as well as this is what they have suggested. I feel like the trust that i had is not there anymore.
I cant thank my EPU for all they did and how serious they took it and explained everything to me. I am recovering at home right now and trying to get back to normal. I have had the amazing support from friends and family.
If any doubt go to your EPU.
