Trying after an ectopic September 8th, 2013 11:09 AM

Need to be heard
So where do I start. My husband and I have been trying to have a baby for the last 3 and a half years.

I had an ectopic 3 years ago. It was one thing that could go wrong after another. I had the emergency surgery. I thought that everything would be ok after that well I was so wrong. I went back to the doctor so thy could check everything and they made me take a pregancy test and it was still positive, I was so confused. I then had to go to the er and they gave me two shots of methotrexate. I had my blood drawn from August to October when my levels are finally normal. I had a hsg test done and found that my left tube is blocked from scar tissue.

Fast fordward to now and I still have t been able to get pregnant. My doctor told my in may that I needed to see a specialist. So I made the appointment I had an ultrasound and they saw fluid on my left tube. They were worried about that. The dr said that might be a reason on why I can't get pregnant. He has said that I have 6 months with being on clomid then after that its ivf. Oh and if I have ivf I have to have surgery to have my left tube removed before i have ivf. I started on 50mg clomid in June it didn't work that month, jumped to 100mg 3 days and 50 2 days for July it didn't work that month either, I had 2 large folicals on the left that were very painfull. August I was on 150mg for 3 days and 100 for 2 days. I'm on the two week wait now.

I feel so alone because no one around me has had any problems getting pregnant. It seems like everyone around me is pregnant. I'm so happy for them. I'm just so pissed off at the situation that I'm in I feel like being a mom will never happen. I feel like I'm broken.

I just needed to vent I don't know what else to do anymore. 😓

I am so sorry youre going through all of this! It seems like the women who really yearn to be Mothers have the hardest times getting pregnant & that is a shame. I wish you the best of luck & hope everything starts looking up for you soon! I have been trying for almost a year and a half & I too see everyone around me pregnant, I had 10 friends pregnant for the passed year & they just gave birth. Makes me feel really down & lonely. Hang in there, you'll get your baby as soon as the Docs fix your tube! I know the medication makes your hormones go haywire too. No fun! :(

So sorry to hear of all you're going through. I haven't been trying quite a year yet but this is my 11th cycle. I can't say anything to make this easier but I do hope you'll soon have your baby to love.

Wow... what a rough time... I'm about 14 months TTC I always knew I was supposed to be a mommy... so it was bizarre to me that I couldn't get pregnant... and as soon as we started trying... my little sister... who DID NOT need to be pregnant got pregnant... she delivered in July... and still no BFP.... it's awful... I know... I wish that there was something to say to help the hurt... but... nothing's helped me... so... I will just say... you're not alone... ::hugs:: Saying a prayer for a BFP soon!

Re: Need to be heard
Can I ask why they are making you remove your remaining tube before they would do IVF?

After more than 4 years of TTC and too many tests and meds to mention, I got pregnant naturally in March of this year, but it ended in an emergency surgery for an ectopic and removal of my left tube, and after that, I was done TTC naturally, and I went straight to IVF. My surgery for the ectopic was in April, and I had my IVF retrieval in June. My remaining tube was never as issue. Good luck to you!!

Hi, I'm sorry it's been so hard on you. I understand, I had an ectopic back in 2010 and it was so horrible. I'm TTC now and it's hard, I'm scared it won't happen for me either. I think you'll find a way and it will work out, but I understand it hurts and it isn't fair. Best of luck to you and your husband.
