My friend wants to know is it ok to have anal sex during ectopic pregnancy treatment. Her levels are down to 2000 after 2nd dose of Methotrexate.

Most Unwise.: I don't know the specifics of how large her embryo is, but in general anything traumatic to the pelvis currently would be ill advised. If she can't have vaginal intercourse, I don't see why anal intercourse would be any differet.

What are the chances of ectopic pregancy with falope rings?

What are the chances of ectopic pregancy with falope rings?

Very small: The failure rate of all methods of "tubal ligation" are very low, and some studies suggest that the falope rings have the lowest failure rate.

What is supraventricular ectopic activity mean? Also what is n-n interval?

What is supraventricular ectopic activity mean? Also what is n-n interval?

Heart beat starts: In an odd place in the small chamber (s) of the heart instead of the node that is supposed to fire off the heart. This electrical trigger is above the level of the big chambers (the ventricles) so it is supra ventricular and it's not supposed to work that way so it's ectopic too. The n-n interval is a distance on the ekg that shows the length of 1 entire heart beat. Search 'heart rate variability'. ...Read more
