I just wanted to do a post to hopefully help people out there going through an ectopic. I know I have scoured mumsnet for hours looking for hope or information.
I had an ectopic in Jan this year and had to have a tube removed, after giving myself time to heal and get ready (everyone is different on how long this takes) we started TTC again.
My cycle was a little all over and I was nervous it would be really hard. I had a period in May and did the usual ovulation tests and got a strong positive on 6th June for ovulation. We are now 6.5 weeks pregnant and just had an early scan to confirm heart beat and all healthy, it is a huge relief and we are not ignorant to the fact we are very lucky in how quick it was but just wanted to say.... don't give up, stay positive, look after yourself whether that's exercise or cupcakes and it will happen ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’“
Ectopic and tube removal is an awful thing to go through but your body will heal and nature will take its course ๐Ÿ™‚

@DoctorBambino @Kate105 try to stay positive (i know it is hard to though)
I had my ectopic and left tube removed in February and we conceived again in July! i really didn't think it would happen so quickly. Good luck and congrats to the others smile

This is giving me so much hope! I had methotrexate before surgery so canโ€™t TTC for 3 months, but I do want to pluck up the courage to try again when weโ€™re allowed to. Itโ€™s a really scary thought so this is helping me put that fear into perspective- thank you so much xxx
