    i had a heterotopic pregnancy (both etopic and normal pregnancy occur at the same time) in 2012. needless to say..i lost both my babies & had 1 tube removed due to ruptured. fortunately the other tube is not blocked. however age is catching up so i did ivf 2 years later.

    dont lose hope! May yoou conceive a bouncy baby soon!

    What causes ectopic pregnancy? I have endomentrosis and my right ovary is always painful during menses.

    I have asked gynae, my gp, my Chinese phsyician and Google.

    There is no reason for an ectopic pregnancy. There is no prevention. There is also no cure.

    I think the husband have to stay strong and make a decision ASAP to terminate it.
    Prolonged consideration will cause the mother to have a chance of internal bleeding.

    Just sharing.

    What are the sign of EP during pregnancy?
  22. brainy smurf

    brainy smurf Member

    Beta hcg level will be abnormal.
    i.e. the value will not doubled up in 48 hours.

    They gynae then will try to arrange ultrasound to see where is the featus.
  23. zenn_zenn

    zenn_zenn Member

    Any physical body sign on EP?
  24. brainy smurf

    brainy smurf Member

    For my wife case, no. We discovered her bhcg level wasn't doubling up. Numerous ultrasounds across the few days were carried out. It was confirmed and double confirmed to be an EP.

    I still remember the confirmation date clearly. 2Sept. My wife was on the brink of a mental breakdown and refuses to terminate the EP. But managed to convince her to have that injection (70%+ success rate) to terminate on that actual day itself.
    Because we discovered this EP early, her fallopian tube with the EP fetus was not damaged as we made the decision to terminate it ASAP. If the fetus starts to grow, that side of fallopian tube might need to be removed.

    Just sharing.

    Sorry to hear about your loss and thanks for sharing in this platform. It helps to bring awareness. May I know does your wife have any cysts prompt to this EP?

    For my case, I am going for my routine check next week as I have endomemosis but now I just found I am tested positive and at the same time I am worry will the cyst cause any danger to my pregnancy. I have endomentrosis.

    Not sure if transvaginal scan is safe for early pregnancy?

    Can we do a blood test at week 3/4? Is it accurate and how fast is the result?

    I do not have any sign of pregnancy and this makes me worry. Is spotting consider normal?

    No worries, we have move on from that EP.

    The questions u have, we didn't been thru, that why I am not able to share.

    What I am trying to share here is, don't give up. I am married for 7years before that EP came. It was so highly anticipated and almost broke the family when we have to sign to terminate it. My wife have suicidal thoughts after the termination. She went into self denial mode, she blames herself for causing the death and the fetus to grow outside the womb.

    We were lucky, discovered early, had that injection to terminate, move on.
    The following one month was crazy for me. I have to take many leaves to stay at home to ensure she don't do anything foolish.

    I have also arranged for ivf in May 2017 to try to assure her we are having a baby really soon. Unexpectedly, we discovered my wife is pregnant again in March2017. We were both happy but super worried as well. Luckily, after ultrasounds scans at 8th, 14th and 17th weeks, blood tests, seems like so far so good. Today my wife is in 19w4d.
    We are now praying for that important scan on 10July to be good.

    I have also a friend that went thru 1x EP, 2x miscarriages before giving birth to her beautiful daughter.

    Do not give up. Ur husband will be ur best support. KKH have a og24 for emergency issues.

    Seek professional advices on ur queries.

    Sorry for the long winded sharing.
    Stay strong, be postive

    Hi all,

    I did ivf on August 14 for FET and on 26 Aug blood test result negative pregnancy and my period start to come on 30 August. But my period is still ongoing for 14days and suddenly start of last week start to have abdominal pain like period cramp kind. Then today my blood test HCG results was high like pregnancy kind and my doctor was shock. He suspect I have ectopic pregnancy and tml I am going back to see him to have a detailed ultra scanning. I need help and advice is it true that ectopic pregnancy will need to remove the fallapion tube? I cannot afford to remove the tube bcos I still wan to get pregnant. Thanks for sharing ur experience and advice

    Not all cases requires removal of the tube. It depends on the size of the fetus and the location. My wife had that injection to terminate it.
    But, it has a 70-80% success rate.
    The doctor also propose to remove from keyhole surgery. Which have a higher success rate.
    We chose the former and luckily it was successful.

    Talk to your husband. Both of you have to make a correct decision. Do not drag too long. If the fetus grew beyond the tube size, likely have to remove tube.

    Just sharing from previous experience.

    Hi brainy smurf. Thanks for ur advice. But after my HCG blood test on last Thursday, doctor said the HSG level don't seems to be ectopic pregnancy. But after my embryo failed implantation, my period started on 30 Aug and till now already 20 and still bleeding. Any ladies here failed ivf and is it normal to have such long period flow? Bcos this my first time and it's kind of driving me crazy and keep worrying if I am ok.
