2 Bumps

Those that have had ectopic pregnancy (tubal pregnancy)...what were the signs or symtoms you experienced?

What symtoms did you have?
How did you find out it was a tubal?
How was it treated?
Were they able to save your tube?
How old were you?
Did you have any of the risk factors for it (previous tubal ligation, PID, etc)?

I'm concerned that I might have a tubal pregnancy. I have a doctor's appointment in the morning. I've looked at several of the sites that discuss this and I have at least 5 of the symtoms. I have LOTS of lower back cramping, LOTS of strong cramping on one side of my lower abdomen, tenderness on that side as well, it took several days for a positive results to show on an HPT after a missed period, and my progestrone levels are low.

I'm just wondering what other women have experienced who have had them.

  • My cousin went through it, I was with her the entire time.
    Bloating, severe cramping, continual bleeding, headaches.
    I shoved her ass into a docs office
    Several doses of Methotrexate
    Yes they were, she did not need surgery.
    She was 27
    As far as I know she did not.

    The sooner you get to a doctor and get diagnosed and begin whatever treatment you may need, the better. Good luck and I hope everything turns out ok.

  • Thank you very much for answering!!!

    I have a doctor's appointment in the morning. The only sign I don't really have is the bleeding so maybe that's a good sign.
