Ectopic surgery 11mths ago.Surgeon said on the inside was messy n stick together as tho I have some type of disease, what does that mean exactly?

Ectopic : The problem is "exactly" because it doesn't mean exactly anything. It's like describing a photograph or a painting. Your surgeon probably meant either 1) the ectopic had damaged your tube, or 2) it looked like the tube had been damaged previously. He/she (the surgeon) is the only who can tell you that. Good luck! ...Read more

Persistent ectopicRx: Persistent ectopic pregnancy if untreated can grow enough to produce tubal rupture. Methotrexate is most effective when given at less then 8 weeks gestation. If the HCG levels continue to rise your MD will probably perform a Laparoscopy to terminate the pregnancy. Meanwhile report to your MD any bleeding, severe pain or dizziness. ...Read more

What happens to the embryo after ectopic surgery & tube removal?

What happens to the embryo after ectopic surgery & tube removal?

Pathology: Typically the specimens are sent to a pathologist, a doctor, who looks at them under a microscope and confirms the type of tissue they are. When pathologic examination is complete, the products of conception (embryo) and tube are incinerated. This is the case for placentas at birth and a variety of other biological tissues. Incineration is safe and destroys any disease as well. Hope that helps. ...Read more

I had sex to soon after my ectopic surgery I only have one tube since I didn't wait the full 6 weeks what's the worse that can happen ?

I had sex to soon after my ectopic surgery I only have one tube since I didn't wait the full 6 weeks what's the worse that can happen ?

May be nothing: If something bad were going to happen from having sex too soon, it would have happened and you would have had pain and/or bleeding. Remember that you could get pregnant from unprotected sex. If you miss your period by 4-5 days, do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Possible but unlikel: Unlikely, but u need to make sure that your beta HCG went all the way down to less than 5 after the ectopic because depending on what type of surgery u had need to make sure no ectopic tissue was left behind, if beta is neg then that is good if beta is + and it is from the ectopic then u may need Methotrexate to dissolve the rest of the ectopic tissue please call your gyn. ...Read more

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
