  • Hi, I just had an ectopic pregnancy recently and got a shot of methotrexate. It was my first pregnancy so I was really sad and felt guilty. �� How long did you wait to get pregnant after having the shot of methotrexate?

  • Thank you so much for the animation it helps me understand clearly what happened inside of my body. My 2nd pregnancy ended in ectopic back in mid 80s I just started feeling nauseous and vomiting at first I thought I had a flu or virus but got thinking it was odd that I was not good in the morning and felt better after vomiting got thinking maybe I am pregnant as morning sickness I did not have with my first full term baby. Within the space a maybe 2 weeks I found out that I was pregnant then was told I had miss carried after getting admitted to Hospital with bad pains and suspected threatened miscarriage when over night I passed a sizeable blood clot the dr gave me a curettage and sent me home to get pregnant again. I had to accept I had simply miscarried. A couple of days later I suddenly got the same pains back again so I went to see the closet Dr ( different GP ) and she said it was just the after effect still from the curettage so back home again. That night the pains got so unbearable and my husband took me to the hospital they sent me down for a ultrasound and was told I never miscarried and was still pregnant for moments I was so excited but that was short lived where I was told it was caught in the Fallopian tube and started preparing me for emergency surgery the whole ordeal was very stressful pregnant not pregnant pregnant not pregnant I have since had 4 more a total of 5 kids all grown up adults now but wonderful. They are my life.

  • Thank you so much for sharing your story ��
    I just found out 2 weeks ago that I was pregnant while having an IUD (Mirena).
    It took almost 2 weeks to get to the point of the doctors figuring out it is an ectopic pregnancy. Once I got the shot, it was the most horrible experience I have had the pain, the bloat, the extreme cramping. I am thankful I have 2 healthy children… But this has definitely been a heartbreaking experience both emotionally and physically. I feel like there is not enough information out there for everyone so again, thank you so much for sharing your story.

  • I just had my methotrexate shot yesterday. my hcg levels only went up 10 in 1 week in devestated. Im 28 years old when i was 23 i had an abortion and it took 6 years to finally become pregnant again. After everything is healed i hope i can get pregnant within the first year or 2
