I had ruptured ectopic pregnancy surgery on 11/30/13. When is it safe to go back to the gym and/or have intercourse?

Depends: The biggest factor depends on whether your surgery was through an 'open' incision (either horizontally, such as a 'bikini cut'; or an 'up and down' incision) or laparoscopically. Certainly by 4 weeks after laparoscopic surgery you should be healed sufficiently to resume exercise and intercourse. Typically intercourse is fine by 4wks after an open incision, but not 'core' exercising. ...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

After a ruptured ectopic pregnancy, are my only chances to conceive limited to every other month since I only have one tube?

After a ruptured ectopic pregnancy, are my only chances to conceive limited to every other month since I only have one tube?

Not necessarily: It is still possible for a tube to pick up an egg from the opposite ovary. Sometimes the egg falls down into the pelvic cavity and the tube must reach down to pick it up. This will likely increase the time it takes to conceive. If there is a lot of pelvic scar tissue, then the tube will have a more difficult time picking up that egg. A HSG is a good test to evaluate the remaining tube. ...Read more

Could it be possible for a ruptured ectopic pregnancy to be mistaken for a ruptured large ovarian cyst?

Could it be possible for a ruptured ectopic pregnancy to be mistaken for a ruptured large ovarian cyst?

Anatomy: No. Ruptured Fallopian tubes is a deadly problem. If you are not in the emergency room trying to save your life because an ectopic pregnancy has ruptured it is very unlikely you have an ectopic rupture. The fallopian tubes are not the ovaries. An ovarian cyst would be seen in the ovary not in the fallopian tubes. ...Read more

I had surgery due to an ectopic pregnancy july 4 2012 when should I start back trying to conceive?

Depends...: What kind of surgery did you have? A salpingostomy (opening of tube and removal of ectopic), or a salpingectomy (removal of ectopic and tube)? Also, the ectopic could be elsewhere besides the tube. Your surgeon should be able to give a "safe" range. ...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

Is it possible to be pregnant 4 weeks post ectopic pregnancy surgery?

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
