My friend's tube burst!!

My friend got diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy. The stupid doctor had her wait it out for a week to see if it would pass on its own and it burst last night on her. They did an ultra-sound a week ago and found a mass in her tube and none in her uterus. Why the hell would they make her wait? an ectopic pregnancy is so dangerous. luckily she is still alive but they had to remove the tube. I feel so sad for her, they were trying for a long time to have another baby.

Her doctor is an idiot. I have never heard of waiting to see if it would pass on its own when it is an ectopic pregnancy. When I had one, my doctor had me come in ASAP. I am glad she is alive, but I a sorry she lost her tube. She really could have died.

Oh no!  So sorry.  I've never heard of "wait & see" w/ an ectopic pregnancy.

That is awful for her. Shame on that doctor for making her "wait it out." It is so dangerous for a woman to wait with an ectopic pregnancy because the side effects are horrible. Definitely report that doctor!
