Ectopic- how do I decide what to do?

Hi all,

I'm a long term lurker who could really do with some advice right now. After a week of being in and out of A&E and EPU it would seem that I have an ectopic pregnancy. I would be 5+4 so it's been found fairly early. As my HCG levels have only raised from 800 to 970 I've been left to wait and see overnight.

If it increases I have to choose between surgery or the methotrexate. I previously had PID due to a ruptured ovarian cyst so I'm worried that if I choose the drug that it will happen again to my damaged tube. How do I decide? Neither option seems ideal sad

TIA

I'm sorry to hear your going through this.
I had the laproscopy (but wasn't given an option of methotrexate).
Can I suggest you have a look and register with ectopic pregnancy trust where you are more likely to get useful responses.

With a HCG that low, I wouldn't have thought that your tube will rupture? My levels were (iirc) 4000-5000, and I was close to rupturing - hence surgery- but still hadn't.

I've got 2 kids post ectopic, with only one tube.

Thank you very much I'll have a look at that website. I have a DD already so I'm lucky in that sense
