Ask the doc treating: You, the chly can damage the tubes so you have an increased risk of getting another ectopic, u need the chly treated asap and then you need a test of cure to make sure it is gone and testing for other stds to make sure u have nothing else, and then in the future before trying for a preg you may need a laparoscopy with dye and antibiotics to assess your tubes. ...Read more

The : The important thing about when to start an ovulation predictor kit is to make sure you start it before you expect to ovulate. The number of days from when you ovulate to when your period starts is very fixed. It is not longer than 14 days. The number of days from when you start your period to when you ovulate can be variable. The best way to figure out when to start is to take your shortest cycle length and subtract 16 days. For example, if your cycle varies between 32 and 36 days, you should subtract 16 from 32 to get 16. You would start testing on cycle day 16 with the first day being the day of an actual flow (not spotting). If your cycles are always 36 days then you would start on cycle day 20. Hope this helps! Good luck! ...Read more

Did having 3 previous c-sections cause me to get an ectopic pregnancy?

Did having 3 previous c-sections cause me to get an ectopic pregnancy?

Probably not.: Although cesarean sections have many adverse implications for future reproduction, increasing the risk of ectopic pregnancies is not one of them. The adhesions caused by cesarean section typically do not involve the tubes, rather the bladder. When the tubes are affected, infertility can occur, as can ectopics. I am not aware of any good data to prove a link with ectopics, though. ...Read more

Does having previous c-sections increase my chance of having an ectopic pregnancy?

No: Previous caesarean section doesn't predispose to ectopic pregnancy. However, it does increase the likelihood of subsequent c-section deliveries depending on where the initial uteran incision was made. Complications of c-sections include hemorrhage, infection, and thromboembolism, which would all have likely presented shortly after the procedure. ...Read more

Can i still get leukorrhea with an ectopic pregnancy?

Can i still get leukorrhea with an ectopic pregnancy?

Hormonal effect: I would tend to see this as a completely different problem that the ectopic pregnancy itself, and should be the least of your worries. If you have been identified as having an ectopic, you should be receiving treatment now. Once the ectopic has been addressed, if the leukorrhea does not resolve, then this needs further evaluation as well. ...Read more
