Had my methotrexate injection 7 weeks ago for an ectopic pregnancy (about 3 weeks along). Still getting pos. Home pregnancy tests. What's going on?
Should be tracked: After Methotrexate it is important that your BHCG levels be tracked all the way down to zero. Usually this is done weekly. This is done to make sure that Methotrexate worked to treat the ectopic pregnancy. Also since it has been 7 weeks are you sure that this is not a new pregnancy? It is possible that you are pregnant again. See an Obgyn for a BHCG blood test. ...Read more

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
