Ectopic pregnancy, also referred to as a tubal pregnancy, occurs when a fertilized egg implants somewhere other than the endometrial lining of the uterus. It is believed that the egg, once fertilized, is slowed or passage to the uterus blocked. Therefore, the fertilized ovum implants prior to reaching the uterus.

My ectopic was in my right tube. I felt cramping, had spotting and felt like I needed to have a BM. The ER doc said that I should have been in a lot of pain, but I was not. So PLEASE go in immediately when you notice anything unusual. It may save your tubes, and your life.

pambrar-I would schedule an appointment with your ob/gyn and discuss your history of ectopic pregnancies They would know your individual circumstances best and be able to develop a game plan for another pregnancy. Good Luck to you!

I had an ectopic pregnancy about 6 months ago. i had no symptoms til it ruptured. i was internally bleeding and i had to have surgery to remove my left fallopian tube. when you feel something is wrong most definatly go to the doctor to check it out. ive gone to the er about four times for them to make sure i was ok.

I had a miscarraige Jan 2012 and then had an ectopic pregnancy May 2012. I started with just bleeding. I was seeing a fertility specialist so they were checking my levels every two days. I had an ultrasound and it showed nothing and it should have so I was treated with methotrexate. I started having horrible pain after that so they sent me to ER. They still couldn't see anything. I went back to the specialist and saw the sack in my right tube. My numbers increased for a few days after the shots and then started decreasing. I had to be treated with another round of methotrexate, 2 shots at the same time just above the butt. I was in horrible pain for two to three weeks after that. My husband and I decided to quit smoking and after three months of the last dose, we could start treatment again. Here it is February 2013 and I am 17 weeks pregnant, due in July. We've had no problems this pregnancy. I think it's because I quit smoking. It may be a myth, but I am a believer in it now.

I also recommend the <strong><a href="http://goo.gl/OKjez">PREGNANCY MIRACLE GUIDE</a></strong> as the ULTIMATE pregnancy/women's health resource!

4/30/13 First day of last period
5/31/13 Positive Home pregnancy test
6/5/13 Started spotting (brownish discharge)
6/7/13 1st Dr. visit (nothing seen on ultrasound) HCG 4.5 Dr. says probably abnormal preg.
6/10/13 Blood draw HCG 42
6/11/13 Woke up ill feeling (sweating, diarrhea, cramps) passed a something "bloody slug" is the best way I can describe it. Dr. thinks I miscarried.
-Dr. request I continue blood draw every other day to look for drop in HCG.
6/17/13 Blood draw HCG 176 Dr. is concerned for a ectopic pregnancy
6/19/13 Blood draw HCG 176
6/20/13 2nd Dr. Appt. (nothing on ultra sound/tech says my uterus lining is nice and thin just the way it should be when someone is not pregnant) Dr. suggest a D&C to test the tissue removed from uterus to test for an ectopic pregnancy.
6/21/13 Blood draw HCG 206 Dr. suggest shot of Methotrexate rather than D&C as concern for ectopic pregnancy has increased.
6/21/13 received shot of Methotrexate
6/25/13 Blood draw HCG 210
I am so confused and scared. My doctor keeps expecting my levels to drop and they seem to be only increasing. I have been bleeding since 6/5/13 and a 20 day period seems a little extreme to me. I did some research online and found that HCG levels can also rise in someone’s blood who has cancer. I feel like there are things my Dr. is not sharing with me. She wants me to follow up this Friday which would be day 7 after the shot of Methotrexate and if my levels are not dropping by then she says I will need another shot. The first shot was not a pleasant experience and I do not look forward to getting another. Please help guide me in some direction. I am wondering if I should be seeking a second opinion, I have not spoken to my Primary Physician at all and I am wondering if I should request an MRI or something to look for a possible tumor somewhere else in my body.
