Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

Post ectopic question.

Hey ladies I hope everyone is doing okay. My levels are finally coming down they were 20 on Tuesday and almost a month later my bleeding is almost stopped. It's been a long tiring road but I'm glad to see the end near.

My question is is how long did you wait to DTD after ectopic pregnancies. I was treated very early with methtroxtrate** I completely forgot to ask my dr when he called and I don't want to call just with that question. Thanks!

Re: Post ectopic question.

  • Mine was a while ago so I may be fuzzy on the details, but I'm pretty sure DH and I had sex after the bleeding stopped and I felt ready to do it again. I would definitely say contact your doc/nurse. If you can email them that's a great way to ask things like this.

  • I had methotrexate twice and then surgery. At my one week post op dr said whoever we felt ready.  I think before surgery though while waiting to see if the methotrexate worked we were told not until levels very low or zero? Can't quite remember. I feel anxious about having sex again- I'm 2.5 weeks post surgery and I'm just worried it will hurt or bring up sad memories of the ectopic. But we will know when time is right I guess.

  • Did you have a follow-up appointment? I had a d&c and was told 2 weeks later that I needed to use condoms for 2 cycles, which was my green light to have sex, but not to ttc. I urge you to call, it's important to know if you need to prevent pregnancy at this time 
  • I was told to wait until my HCG was zero because you're still at risk of tubal rupture until your HCG is zero (or < 3), and there could theoretically be increased risk of rupture with increased abdominal pressure.  We were told to wait 3 months before TTC because of the methotrexate.
  • I'm sorry for your loss. My dr told me no sex until my numbers were zero and urged me to use protection until after i have an HSG during my second cycle.
