ectopic pregnancy

Hi all

I had surgery on the 9th as I sadly had a ectopic pregnancy. I was 5 weeks 6 days according to my dates but my tube has ruptured so the right side tube had to be removed.

After I found out I was pregnant me and my partner stopped using protection. We last dtd on the Wednesday and I had surgery on the Saturday.

It has all been so much going on sad. The past few days I've started having pregnancy symptoms again. All this I get before I find out I'm pregnant from what I remember from pervious DD.

I basically want to know how quickly you can get pregnant ? and if it's even possible to be feeling this? I had bleeding 2 days after surgery which felt like a period just a bit heavier. It only lasted 6 days which is why I as it was period like.

I would love to have another baby but I am so scared it will also be ectopic. When is it advices you ttc again after it all?

Thank you all smile

I'm sorry to hear about your ectopic.
You won't be pregnant from sex before the ectopic ruptured. Your body wouldn't have produced an egg, as it thought you were pregnant.
I'd wait til you've had at least one normal period (ie one more after the post surgery bleed) before contemplating trying again.
Both my boys were concieved easily post tube removal for ectopic pregnancy, but I wasn't ready to try again for 6 months.
Take time to recover, mentally as well as physically. It's a tough journey you've just been through.

Thanks for your reply. I done a test this morning just go check and it came back with a faint positive. I am going to do one tomorrow to see if any darker. I actually have a appointment tomorrow to take my stitches out as they haven't dissolved. ( It's been 16 days since surgery )
