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. Methotrexate often also causes diarrhea as a side effect because it interferes with the normal gut lining and it's replacement. I'd suggest abstinence, or use of hands/toys ...Read more
Methotrexate: Methotrexate stops rapidly dividing cells by preventing utilization of folic acid. Is has been a known abortofascient drugas for years and will usually negate an ectopic pregancy. Woem who take mtx must wait 2 & 1/2 mo to rid their bodies of traces before retrying to get pregnant. ...Read more
Extrasystoles: Frequent extra beats with an otherwise normal heart do not presage any evil in general. If the heart is structurally or functionally abnormal, the same statement doesn't necessarily hold. Without knowing the state of your heart, it isn't possible to tell you for sure whether you have a problem. ...Read more

Extra beats: An ectopic beat is one where the electricity does not originate from its normal location in the heart. This results in the heart either beating prematurely, or delaying the heart beat for a very brief time. ...Read more
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. It is hard to quote the exact chance of an ectopic pregnancy under these circumstances, but it is increased if you get pregnant. The answer is - extremely unusual / rare.

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

Ectopic: As I understand you you had a positive pregnancy test on August 13 then had an ultrasound on September 2 which showed no intrauterine sac. The usuall follow up would be a repeat quantitative HCG in 3 days then an ultrasound then or within a week. No more than two weeks. ...Read more
My wife had ectopic pg followed by salpinjectomy in 21 months ago. 6 months ago she had d&e&c, it was a blighted ovam. Both times she took letrozol.
Abnormal origin: The normal pacemaker for the heart is the sinus node which is located in the upper part of the right atrium. When another site in the heart initiates the heart beat it is referred to as an ectopic pacemaker. ...Read more
It depends: Ectopic pregnancies can be treated w/medication or surgery. Early, stable ectopics in compliant patients are often treated w/methotrexate (a chemotherapy drug) & closely followed. More advanced ectopics or ectopics in patients that are unstable or complicated are usually treated by laparoscopy to remove the pregnancy and possibly the tube. An uncertain diagnosis is also a reason to operate. ...Read more
Not sure: But it probably means irregular hearbeats caused by electrical impulses of your heart muscles that originate in a location other than your normal points of origin. These can originate from one location or multiple locations. Treatment would depend on where in your heart these ectopic conductions originate. ...Read more

2. Unusual, daily spotting
3. Pain or cramping on one side of the pelvis or the other

Am young like 20 now but I had 2 misscarrgaes and a ectopic can I have kids or no can any one answer me and be real about?
Not until menses:
Until you start cycling again, you can't. But after an ectopic, as soon as your HCG levels go to zero, you body will start cycling again. How quickly depends on the individual woman but it can be as quick as the next month.
Very important to get checked very early after you conceive again to make sure there is not another ectopic.
Good luck. ...Read more
Heart rhythm: The heart rhythm is being generated in a different spot than usual (usually from the high right atrium in the sinus node). If your rate is normal & the rhythm is regular, it would have no significance and you wouldn't even know about it unless you have an ekg. The overall condition of your heart determines the significance, not the rhythm, per se. ...Read more
