Advice after ectopic pregnancy

Hi

I am not new to the site but a bit lot as where to post as it has been nearly a year since I was last here after a successful IVF.

So here goes. Last Tuesday I discovered I was pregnant over a year after my DS was born. I was about 9 weeks. Wit in 24 hours I was rushed to hospital and diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy. This wasn't my first ectopic as I suffered one in 2007 and lost my right tube so when I discovered I was pregnant I knew there was a 90% chance it would be ectopic. This one was in my left tube and I was told the only option was to remove my left tube as it was to dangerous to leave it in. To be honest I was always scared of getting pregnant naturally because of my previous ectopic and after a lap&dye test I was told my let tube was to damaged and along with PCOS the best option and safest one was IVF.

I suppose what I want to know is what now. Can I still have a second child with IVF or does this change everything?

We were gonna go through another cycle in 3 years time but does the fact I have no tubes now change this? I would like to hear from anyone who has had a similar experience please really could do with somebody to answer my questions as I have to wait 8 weeks for a follow up appointment xx

Hiya

I am the same as u hun and yes you can still have IVF, they only need your ovaries, I had an ectopic which took my left tube in 2001 then another that took my right tube last yr. In IVF your tubes dont contribute at all so dont worry.

All the best x

I am really sorry for your loss. But good news in your case is having tubes removed, makes no difference to the way eggs are retrieved for IVF.
IVF is where eggs are removed from your ovary using ultrasound scanning and a fine needle just before the the ovulation, mixed with sperm outside the womb, and the resulting embryo or embryos are re-inserted into your womb.
It’s hard waiting for the treatment to begin. Best of luck for your treatment. Pray you get a BFP soon.
