So here’s my story about a month ago me and my partner found out I was pregnant it was not plan as I was on the pill but we were both still over the moon however about 3 weeks ago I started bleeding went to a&e we’re they said it was normal to sometimes bleed during your first trimester and everything was ok then sent me home later that evening the bleeding got worse and I past a big blood clot and something that looked like a gestational sack a&e had mad me an appointment at the early pregnancy until a few days later were they did a scan and confirmed that I had had a miscarriage they also informed me that I had a bicornuate uterus ( heart shaped uterus) meaning I have 2 wombs I had my bloods done to check my hormone levels I then had to go back 48 hours later for my bloods again as my hormone levels were not dropping when they took me second lot of bloods my hormone levels had gone up so I had to go back a further 48 hour for more bloods and my hormones still not going Down so had to co for a second scan which showed up no sign of pregnancy inside the wombs or outside so they said needed to go in for surgery the next day for an evac and get rid of rest of pregnancy tissue that was in my womb and if not satisfied with the amount of tissue they got out they would need to do a keyhole laparoscopic to investigate for eptopic as Iv not had any signs so I went in to hospital the next day and was there from 7am till 5pm till u was taken to surgery was in theatres for 4 hours when I came back no one told me what had happened done later on when a Murs came in my partner asked what had been done in surgery they did that they have had to remove me left tube but that was it no detail of why I stayed in hospital overnight and when surgeon saw me in morning they explained thing properly In morning they showed me pictures they took inside me and said I was lucky as my left tub could have ruptured at any time what I don’t get is why I ad no symptoms and how they missed it on All scans or if they knew that why they changed surgery plans and just didn’t say anything to me what has me more worried now is with me only having one tube on the right side and a heart shaped uterus how will this effect me conceiving in the future am I likely to have another eptopic pregnancy I’m just scared my partner has been amazing though all of this and has been my rock has anyone else had a similar situation

Hi, I'm sorry that this happened to you. It must have been very hard and scary.

I had an ectopic pregnancy. I had no idea I was pregnant as I'd had what I thought was a period. Then a few days later I had more bleeding. Did a pregnancy test as suspected it was (another) miscarriage. I had no pain or any other symptoms.

Went to the EPU who found it was a ruptured tube and I was in surgery the next morning. Removed my left tube.

Like you I was worried about conceiving again but we tried again after waiting for 3 months. I fell pregnant first time and I'm sitting here with my healthy 10 month old Smile.

Apparently the remaining tube moves to the ovulating ovary - everything is actually much closer than it seems in those diagrams.

You can be at slightly more risk of a second ectopic so make sure you get an early reassurance scan in your next pregnancy. That also helped my anxiety.

@babylunny - sorry to hear you’ve been through this but I wanted to let you know that I was in exactly the same situation as you when I was ttc.

I thought I’d miscarried but bloods kept showing rising hcg levels. I had no symptoms of ectopic pregnancy but they admitted me for laparoscopic surgery and when I came round I was told it was an ectopic and my right hand tube had been removed. I also have a septate uterus! It doesn’t mean I have 2 wombs though, just that my womb is heart shaped.

I was under the care of Prof Regan at the Miscarriage Clinic due to previous miscarriages which they found were caused by a blood clotting problem - nothing to do with my septate uterus.

After the ectopic, it took me a year to get pregnant again (aged 40!) and with treatment for the clotting issue, I had a successful pregnancy resulting in my daughter who is now 15. 2 years later I had my son after only trying for 6 months.

I hope my story gives you hope and I wish you luck.
