I posted before that I was doing two cycles of 50mg Clomid with my OBGYN before moving on to an RE. The first month was April and it was a good cycle. Temps were perfect I could see the different parts of my chart and verified that I ovulated. My first 30day or less cycle. No PG, but I wasn't worried since AF was right on schedule and BFNs for several days.
I started second round April 30. May 11 I had about an hour and a half of moderate pain on my right side, followed by bleeding. My Dr's nurse said it was likely a small cyst that ruptured and to come in if the pain was sustained. Made an appt for May 21. It happened again on May 18, but since the pain went away I resolved to just go in for my appt. My temps were VERY wonky. I had a small amount of temp shift, but nothing sustained.
On May 20, I had the same pain and bleeding but it didn't go away. I came home from work and finally ended up in the ER. My ovaries were huge. Right ovary was over 9cm and I had a 4cm cyst. Left ovary not quite as large but had 7cm cyst. My pregnancy test came back positive with a beta of 2396 - that blew me away.
Ultra sound found nothing in my uterus and she said she verified no issue with my tubes potentially the fetus was too small to see and go to my doc's appointment in the morning. Went home 1am, had doc appt at 9am. I nearly fainted several times on the way to the doc. Ultrasound at the doc's office verified the size of my ovaries and the cysts. The tech said that she couldn't see my tubes due to the size of my ovaries. They rushed me over to the hospital to go in through my belly button to have a look.
They found I had an ectopic pregnancy and my right tube had ruptured. Due to internal bleeding, I had over a pint of blood on my abdomen. I am so thankful I had already made that doctor's appointment for Friday. I can't believe the ER didn't keep me.
I thought that 50 mg of Clomid wasn't a big dose and I would be OK. I You guys were right. Monitoring is NECESSARY - EVERY TIME!!! If this story helps anyone else then I am glad I told it.
I was discharged from the hospital today DH and I are going to take a break from any and all treatments until next year. We aren't going on birthcontrol, but I am not going to the RE until next year.
