hi, I was diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy at 8 weeks, docs were worried my right tube would rupture so they operated yesterday. in the end they didn't remove my tube cause they weren't 100% sure it was there. today they gave me an injection of methotrexate. feeling so low now - it shouldn't be so hard to have a baby. has anyone had methotrexate? i'm worried about the side effects when i'm already feeling physically and emotionally rubbish :-(

So sorry to hear what you are going through. I was treated with methotrexate for my first ectopic pregnancy. I don't remember many side effects other than feeling very,very tired for a couple of weeks. I think I started bleeding 3 or 4 days after I had the injection. I had quite a bit of pain in the side where the pregnancy was and also pain running down the top of my thighs. I think this only lasted a day though and wasn't anything I couldn't cope with though.

Have you looked at the Ectopic Pregnancy Trust website? There is loads of information on there and the forums are great. You will get a lot of support there. You may also get more responses to this if you post on the pregnancy loss board. Take care.
