Why couldn't they scan you today? Are you having any pain? How many weeks are/were you?

Do you have any shoulder tip pain? Did they scan at 6w? Are your levels rising (sorry for all the questions)

they scanned at 6 weeks, said fluid in pouch, levels not rising but not going that quick. i have alot of pain in my neck and head as have neuralgia so would not notice pain, am really worried though, ask as many Q's as you want if it gives me some answers, feel like they are running around in circles

ok, and how are your bowels? how much bleeding have you had? was it clotty or thin?

I had an ep a few years back. was sent home with a mc, still tested bfp, scanned and couldnt find anything. a couple of weeks later tube ruptured. do you feel sick? is the pain one sided?

i have pain when i go to the toilet (number 2),

i had quite alot of bleeding but not as heavy as my period, no clots just congealed blood, i do not think i passed a sack but i would not know what it looked like if i did. i dont feel sick but do feel tired.

i have scan tommorrow, how can i get them to check, because i dont feel right steel pains down there, and not sure if they should be.

what happened when your tube ruptured? was you able to concieve again

Go to a and e, don't risk leaving it. Or call your hospital tomorrow first thing and request emergency scan. I had an ectopic last year and the one symptom that really stuck in my mind was pain in my bowels, like needing to go, and worse when sitting down. Please, please push them to scan you so you can be certain it's not ectopic.

I agree with the others that you do need to get checked out again. However, getting checked out does not mean that you will end up with the worst case scenario. I went through exactly what you're going through, was told it was a self-resolving ectopic. I had to have blood taken every 2 days for 4 weeks. And countless scans and even internals. It was an awful time and twice I was actually prepped for investigative surgery before another doctor came and said I was ok to leave. I felt like a ticking bomb and it was a very stressful time. After 4 weeks the levels finally began dropping and I had another bleed and it was finally over. My levels were never high - hovering around literally 60-70 but were not going down as expected. I really do feel for you, it is such a worry but you do need to demand to be seen and to make sure that you are not at risk of a rupture. Hang in there.

and if you start bleeding heavily, or the pain gets worse when you lie down, o you feel sick or breathless, A&E. 999. no fannying around.
god, the way the nhs deals with ep is shocking. angry

Hi, I just saw your post on ectopic. I had a simular situation in May / June. I was 7 weeks and started to bleed so had scan and told it was a pregnancy of unknown location and prob not ectopic but would need a rescan. I couldn't get one for a week but in that time I had some discomfort (I wouldn't call massive pain) which normally occured when going to toilet. I was rescanned and with HCG tests was told it was ectopic. I was then on the cycle of attending hospital every 48hrs until my HCG had gone to safe levels <10. My blood tests went on every 48hrs for about 3 weeks and then went weekly for a remaining 4 weeks. They said I would bleed for 10 days (ish), however I bled for 48 days. I had had a MC in the January, so maybe my body was having a clear out. With my EP I didn't pass a sac as per my MC and was expecting it...but it didn't happen. It's been a lot slower to resolve and only am having follow up scan next week to ensure the foetus has passed.

I would say you would feel uncomfortable / period like pain but anything else you shouldn't hesitiate and go to A&E of the hospital you are being treated at.

Good luck and please don't think you are alone. Not many people talk about EP but there seem to be quite a few of us out here.
