Gave up after ectopic pregnancy

How can one get pregnant again after experiencing ectopic pregnancy? It is a question that lingers in my mind from the painful situation that I found myself in. Fertilisation had occurred in my fallopian tubes. It started with a slight itch that I never took seriously. As the pregnancy grew, the itch translated to pain. Little by little did the pain grow. I was worried beyond a reasonable doubt. I was stressed and in total confusion. As days progressed, the pain grew this time so intense that I was unable to bend low. Without hesitation, I decided to visit a medical physician for advice. I was totally in stress when it was found that the pregnancy was growing almost to the left side of the abdomen. It was going to be an emergency case. The doctors called the ward attendants and I have whisked away for a scan. What I took lightly came to be a mountainous thing. I had to be done a scan. Immediately it was done, it was established that I had an ectopic pregnancy. The fetus had grown in the fallopian tube leading to its permanent blockage. I underwent surgery and from that time I have never conceived. What should I do now?

I am so sorry to hear that. Ectopic pregnancies can really make it hard further down the road. During pregnancy, every unusual occurrence should be taken seriously. I am sure you understand that now. As far as your future options are concerned, there is still hope. You can opt for surrogacy. I think even DE IVF might work for you.

I am sorry that you are feeling that way. It's true that if you had an ectopic pregnancy you have more possibility to have it again. After all this problems you mentioned my advice to you is to try with ivf. Think hard and if you decide to try it I can tell something about it.

Sorry for that experience. Perhaps I need to look at some of the causes of the problem to help you decide whether to conceive or not. I guess it is not the best experience, but it sometimes happens. It happens and could recur especially in the case of a scarred uterus. Notice that ectopic pregnancy is prevalent in women who have suffered from the same problem before. Also, women undergoing IVF are likely to suffer from ectopic pregnancy because the embryo can travel into the fallopian tube instead of implanting itself in the uterus. Also, old women stand a higher chance of suffering from an ectopic pregnancy. Women who have had inflammatory diseases are likely to end up with ectopic pregnancy. Studies show that women who have had an operation in the fallopian tube stand a higher chance of having an ectopic pregnancy. Also, any form of an operation on the tummy especially the cesarean section is most likely to lead to ectopic pregnancy.
According to research, at the University of Edinburgh, it was discovered that smokers have an increased level pf PROKRI protein in their fallopian tubes. This protein plays a role in the helping pregnancies get implanted in the womb. When such proteins find their way into the womb, they may hinder the movement of the fertilized egg. It increases chances of ectopic pregnancy. So, my dear, I think you should not be scared about the reoccurrence of the problem. You need to forget about the past and conceive. Remember you need a few children before your biological clock starts ticking. What happened to you may or may not repeat itself. Good Luck.

I feel extremely sorry for this condition. Ectopic pregnancies can also cause pelvic infection, which have some on your fertility. However you need to get some lab tests done. Consult a fertility specialist. You certainly have various options. Also after ectopic pregnancy surgery it is better to wait for three months and then try again. If you are still unable to conceive then it is better to go for options like IVF and Surrogacy. Hope you make the right decision. Stay Positive and maintain a healthy routine. Much love xx

Sorry for what happened to you it must have been a harrowing experience. But we thank God that you were able to get medical attention, and you are now feeling much better. For the sake of those who may not be knowing what ectopic pregnancy is, I will take a few minutes to gloss over the subject. Ectopic pregnancy refers to a medical condition where the egg is fertilized in the fallopian tube. The egg does not travel to the uterus but get stuck in the tube and start implanting itself on the wall of the tube. It may seem like a normal pregnancy where one misses the period and feels discomfort able in the belly. You may also experience tender breasts just like any other women. With time, a woman will experience abdominal pain and bleeding.
Diagnosis
When you visit a doctor, the normal pregnancy test will be conducted, and he may even feel tender mass during a pelvic examination. A pelvic ultrasound will help establish the presence of an ectopic pregnancy. Inserting an ultrasound into the vagina will help display images on the on the screen. The images may reveal a mass in the fallopian tube which suggests the presence of an ectopic pregnancy. The ultrasound will also help the doctor detect the absence of pregnancy in the womb. This suggests the presence of an ectopic pregnancy. To treat the patient, she must undergo a surgery where the growing fetus is removed from the tube. Unfortunately, if the doctor is not experienced, he may end up damaging the tube as it is in gey’s case.
