I had surgery for a ectopic pregnancy. My cycle came on July 16th, stayed on 7 days. July 29 it came on again should I be concern?

Possibly: You do not mention when the surgery for the ectopic occurred. If you have not been sexually active since the procedure there should not be a problem with pregnancy. The hormone levels will take awhile to get back to a "normal' cycle after a pregnancy. If yo do not wish to become pregnant please make sure to use appropriate birth control. ...Read more

Had ectopic pregnancy  rupture surgery about 3-4 days ago, I laugh so much and bend to stop the pain could I damage anything?

Most likely, no: You won't hurt anything inside if the surgeon did a proper job. You do have to be concerned about any stitches that are present in the skin. A tip: hold a pillow against your abdomen and gently push in to hold your abdomen if you cough, laugh, or sneeze. ...Read more

I had a ectopic pregnancy and had surgery one week ago to remove my tube. I've stopped bleeding and feel healed. Is it too early to resume sex?

Too early: Yes, it's too early to resume intercourse after 1 week postoperative treatment for an ectopic pregnancy. Your body needs time to heal, at least 4 weeks. You also should use protection unless a pregnancy is wanted. If so, you can try to conceive after one normal cycle. ...Read more

In an ectopic pregnancy surgery treatment, is there any possibility that the baby (fetus) will try to breathe on its own, when it's being removed?

In an ectopic pregnancy surgery treatment, is there any possibility that the baby (fetus) will try to breathe on its own, when it's being removed?

No: Rarely ectopic pregnancy will go that far if it was missed for any reason the location on the tube will make it rupture and that cause severe pain and bleeding that could be lethal . If it was discovered early they usually try medication to aborted if not successful they go for surgery . In my opinion they never grow enough to be a live fetus that able to take s breath ...Read more

If my first pregnancy resulted as a ectopic pregnancy treated by surgery would i be marked high risk for my next pregnancy strictly due to my history?

Ectopic: There are no set criteria for what would make one "high risk". This would be up to the discretion of your doctor. An ectopic pregnancy raises your chances that subsequent pregnancies will also be ectopic. This is why you should get checked as soon as you are pregnant. An ultrasound at about 6 weeks can determine if the pregnancy is in the uterus or possibly another ectopic. ...Read more

Had lap surgery last for ectopic pregnancy would my doc have able to tell then if I had endometriosis? Or would just be focus on tr pregnancy?

Had lap surgery last for ectopic pregnancy would my doc have able to tell then if I had endometriosis? Or would just be focus on tr pregnancy?

Could: If your ectopic was ruptured, the bleeding could have obscured any endometriosis. Otherwise, it would depend on whether or not the doctor looked at the entire pelvis which I'm sure would be done if you had a history of any symptoms. Ask to find out for sure. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Had surgery for ectopic pregnancy now I only have my right tube doctor said I should be okay but can you still get pregnant with only tube worried ?

Had surgery for ectopic pregnancy now I only have my right tube doctor said I should be okay but can you still get pregnant with only tube worried ?

You can still : You "can still get pregnant with only one tube " but you need to keep in mind that your fertility/fecundability is statistically reduced and if/when you do get pregnant your risk of having another ectopic pregnancy is increased. You will have to be cautious and consult a specialist in reproductive Endocrinology-Infertility as soon as you get pregnant again to "confirm viability and location". ...Read more
