Was it an ectopic?: There is not enough info here to answer. If your doctor diagnosed you with an ectopic pregnancy then immediate treatment with surgery or a medication called Methotrexate was warranted. If the doctor is uncertain then typical a follow up BHCG is done as well as a repeat sonogram to determine if the pregnancy is too early to be seen, a miscarriage or an ectopic. Follow up in your case is warranted ...Read more

More detailed: If you were definitively diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy then immediate treatment with Methotrexate or surgery was indicated. If the doctor was uncertain due to the intrauterine fluid pocket then close follow up with BHCG levels and repeat sonograms should be done until a definitive diagnosis can be made. ...Read more

Does having a tilted uterus make it more common to have an ectopic pregnancy?

Probably not: Ectopic pregnancies occur when the sperm and egg meet and fertilize and then the fertilized ovum does not make it to the uterus. This is usually a tubal issue (scarring, obstruction, etc). The fertilized egg continue to grow and the tube cannot handle the size and growth and ruptures. Tilting of the uterus in my opinion would not be a recognized cause for this condition. ...Read more

Can a ectopic pregnancy be moved to the uterus? If not why can it not be moved?

Can a ectopic pregnancy be moved to the uterus? If not why can it not be moved?

Too fragile: Once an ectopic pregnancy has started to grow, the tissue is not accessible to be mobilized and replaced or implanted in the uterus. The tissue is too fragile number one, and the knowledge of how to make such an existing pregnancy actually reimplant itself is lacking at this time. Ectopic pregnancies can occur anywhere but usually are in the tube as described in the picture above. ...Read more
