Been having pregnancy like symptoms. Took femara (letrozole) about 3 weeks ago, had blood test for progesterone day 21 level, came back .4 and had ultrasound done which said I ovulated. Could I be pregnant, be having ectopic pregnancy, or miscarrying?
See your physician: Have a bhcg quantatative done, not bhcg qualatative. It would be good to see what your bhcg number is to determine if you are pregnant. Most home preganancy tests are qualatative which tells you if you are pregnant or not. A quantatative test will provide a "number" to indicate "how much" of a product is produced. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it possible to get pregnant if hCG levels are above 100 after a recent ectopic pregnancy? How low would they have to be to ovulate again?
Zero: You need to wait until the HCG reaches zero to try again. That is for several reasons. First you could be at danger from the ectopic still if is not totally gone. Also after a miscarriage or an ectopic it is possible to have a type of pregnancy cancer where the HCG never goes down to zero. So in either case it is very important to follow the HCG down to zero first, . ...Read more
After my ectopic pregnancy, i loosed my right fallopian tube, so will it effect me every month from conceiving? Do ovaries ovulate alternately ?
Ectopic pregnancy: Ovaries normally ovulates 70% of the time on the same side. Losing a tube due to an ectopic pregnancy will decrease your chances of conception but there is still a high likelihood of conceiving. Ask your physician to determine which side you ovulate the majority of time on and possibly taking Clomid (clomiphene) will allow you to ovulate on both sides to improve your chances of conception. There is an approximate 10 to 15% chance of having another topic pregnancy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have been having irregular periods since ectopic pregnancy six months ago, can I ovulate while on my menstrual cycle?
Probably not.: Although cesarean sections have many adverse implications for future reproduction, increasing the risk of ectopic pregnancies is not one of them. The adhesions caused by cesarean section typically do not involve the tubes, rather the bladder. When the tubes are affected, infertility can occur, as can ectopics. I am not aware of any good data to prove a link with ectopics, though. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Minimal risk factor: Any pelvic surgery can increase the risk of an ectopic if any tubal damage is involved or if there are multiple adhesions (scar tissue). Like anyone else, if you have an early pregnancy and experience any pain with or without bleeding, check with your doc asap. You can also ask your doc how your tubes looked at c-section, (for peace of mind). Prior ectopic is a larger risk factor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Previous caesarean section doesn't predispose to ectopic pregnancy. However, it does increase the likelihood of subsequent c-section deliveries depending on where the initial uteran incision was made. Complications of c-sections include hemorrhage, infection, and thromboembolism, which would all have likely presented shortly after the procedure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

You don't - see MD!: No woman can know if she has an ectopic pregnancy by history or symptoms. Even the physician cannot know if an early pregnancy is ectopic by history and physical examination alone. One has to rely on high-quality transvaginal ultrasound and serum beta HCG levels to clinch this potentially life-threatening diagnosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
