🙁  I’m sorry.  My friend and an ectopic and it was awful, to say the least.  They finally took her in for surgery after 3 weeks of bleeding, and she lost an ovary.  It sounds like you kept both of yours, and I wish you all the best in trying again.

Hugs. I had something similar happen to me. I had what is called a molar pregnancy when we were trying for my son almost three years ago. It shocked the hell out of me because I am Black, mid 20’s and used nonhormonal BC, IUD. The risk factors weren’t there for me but I still got the molar.

After my D&C, I had to get my blood drawn weekly to see if the hCG levels were dropping. If they weren’t, the molar could have turned cancerous in my uterus and I would have had to get the methotrexate shot. Thankfully, I went from 190,000 to 22 within 3 weeks. After I hit 9, I made the decision to TTC again right away (my OB gave me permission since my numbers fell so quickly, she wasn’t worried). I ended up pregnant that very next cycle and now I have my son. I love that little boy to pieces after all we had been through trying to get him.

Dont feel alone *hugs*

@PrettySedity:  I’m so glad to hear your levels have dropped so much. I hope you get under 5 soon! Mine never rose to 3 digits. I bounced around for 4 weeks as low as 22 and as high as 53. It just kept staying in the 50s even after I was medicated. As you know they ruled it an ectopic pg and I had my methotrexate shot one week ago tonight. I had blood drawn yesterday morning and I’m at 31 (it was 55 last week). So I hope to drop quickly. This has been such an emotional roller coaster. I need to get off and regroup. Take care of myself and gear up for AF so DH and I can try again ASAP!  Thank you for the Email.

Big hugs! I had a similar experience and was also administered a methotrexate shot. From the time I started bleeding (about 6 days after BFP) until everything was said and done, it was 62 days of bleeding. Not fun! But here I am 2 years later and we are 17 weeks pregnant, so there is hope! 🙂 Sending you healing vibes! xo

I’m so happy the second shot seems to be working!!!! I also had an ectopic pregnancy while using an IUD. The first shot didn’t work on me, and the day before my second shot was scheduled my fallopian tube burst! I had surgery and lost my right fallopian tube.

It was a tough a REALLY tough time. But I’m happy to be healthy and feeling emotionally better.

I’m extremly happy chances are you won’t need surgery! Big hug!!!!
