IVF/Ectopic

HI.i was admitted yesterday after a scn app to check size of my ovarys(was admitted last sun with OHSS but left on mon) On thurs i went to my clinic concered as i was having awful cramps.they did a blood test which was positive with beta 2527. was 5 wks yesterday. anyway, at my scan app yesterday the scanner became concered that he counldnt c a pregnancy with beta resuls of 2527. they think theres a chance of it being ectopic. having bloods and another scan today. i just womder if its too early to c anything. junior doc told me she had seen at least 5 people with betas between 3000 and 6000 that when scaned couldnt find aanythink and went on later o find a pregnancy. really worried as its taken 7 years to get to this point... anyone else heard of ectopics in ivf

Hi Kasey, didn't want to read and run but I'm afraid I don't know very much. As far as I am aware an ectopic in an IVF pregnancy is rare because the embryo is put in the womb. As I'm sure you know and ectopic is when the embryo implants in the fallopian tube. Also a 5 week embryo is tiny and the doctor has already said that she has seen scan where the embryo couldn't be seen. I think the thing to do is wait and see, sorry I know that close to impossible! Hopefully someone will be along soon with a bit more knowledge.

hi thanks for the reply.exacly what i thought yesterday, but apprently ectopic doesnt just mean being in the tubes. it can be ovarys, cervix or outside the womb. really hard to understand though, but after looking it up on net, apparenty there is a risk to ivf patients. small and rare but thats just my luck.. just wish the doc would comunicate better as one doent seem to think its to much of aa problem and the other has me panicked... fingers crossed for scan later but cant c there gonna c much more than yesterday...

hunni

i am sorry you are going through this. Sometimes the fallopian tubes can suck an embryo into them and this is what can cause an ectopic with ivf its not as rare as some might think.

i wish you all the best.

I am so sorry you are having such a terrible time. I have heard of eptopics with ivf, my doctor said they could happen if possibly one of the tubes were to suction the egg up as Kar said. However my doctor did say this was unlikely unless the tube was damaged in some way.....not sure if this helps. thinking of you x
