methotrexate to end Ectopic pregnancy- still feeling lousy 2.5 weeks later

Has anyone else had Methotrexate to end a failing/ectopic pregnancy? I had the injections 2.5 weeks ago and I'm still feeling lousy - nausea, headaches and extreme tiredness. Is this normal?I really hate that I agreed to take the drugs as it goes against all my values (ethical and health related) but at the time the risk of losing a tube etc wasn't one we felt we could take.

Big hugs to you Dixxie so sorry for your loss x Not got any experience of what you are going through but dont beat yourself up on the ethical front. I'm sure you know in your head that an ectopic pregnancy could never have developed and there was risk to your life. I too would find it hard from that perspective, it's a very sad situation, lots of love to you xxx

Thanks so much. I think i've got my head around it, I just think the side effects of the drugs are still very strong and wonder if anyone else has had the same experience from taking methotrexate...
