Hi bees, I have posted on another thread about my experience getting diagnosed with an ectopic. I received methotrexate almost three weeks ago and I’m wonder for those that went through this, how long did it take before your levels were at 0? And how high were they to begin with? I’d love to hear the experience of others!
Here’s my levels:
5/17 day before mtx- 2926
5/24 – 4035
It appears to be dropping as expected, but it did go from a drop of around 1800 in 5 days to a drop of only about 700 in 7 days. Is it going to start slowing down now? Are the last 540 going to take forever to go away?? I’m tired of waiting and don’t want this last bit to take weeks and weeks 🙁

Mine started at around 4000 and took 8 weeks to drop completely. It was the last few weeks where my levels were stubbornly holding on around the 30-50mark. Then all of a sudden they dropped. I needed to get below 10 to be discharged. The week before discharg I was at 12!
Hope your levels drop nice and quickly now…best of luck.

My experience is probably very different, because my hCG was only a 15 (at 6 weeks!!) when they realized it was an EP. I had my MTX injection and within 6 days it was down to 0. From there it took about 6 weeks to get my first period.

At the peak mine was about 6,000 and it took about 2 months to go down 🙁

Thanks y’all for sharing your experiences! I’m sure mine won’t be all the way to 0 by next week, but I’m hoping to only have another 2-3 weeks of this… we will see
