Suffered MMC , hcg dropped & now slowly rising?

Jan 16th, 2018, 20:08 PM   #1
 
Iím not really sure if anyone has had a similar experience , but I am so tired of going back & forth to my hospital & no one explaining to me what is going on with my body
I miscarried last week, the day before I had an U/S which showed no pregnancy in my womb & a shadow near my right ovary. They were saying it was either a cyst or ectopic.
The day after I had painful cramps & passed clots, they confirmed by HCG levels were dropping & I had miscarried.
Today my hcg has gone from 71 to 88 , I know itís only risen slightly but now I am worrying that it could still be related to an ectopic pregnancy?

Iím trying not to get stressed or upset but I really donít no how much more I can take. The whole experience has been horrible & I was just starting to feel myself again.

Sorry this is happening to you.
The only reason ikno of is what you've said about the ectopic. Sorry didn't wanna read and run. I would see the GP to have a look at your notes and maybe they can explain what is happening x

You could have retained tissue Hun. Have thy advised on a plan to help you?? You could have a d&c to empty the womb if you’ve got retained tissue.

Did they say they were worried about ectopic when you got your results? Your hcg needs to be back to normal levels before your cycle will kick in again and if it’s ectopic it could continue to grow. It needs managing if the numbers are going the other way.

I had an ectopic in March this year.

Fx this is resolved quickly for you xx

Yeah I have to go back today & they said it’s to make a plan of where to go next.
Hopefully there’s something they can sort soon, as all it’s been so far is trips back & forh ..
thank you girls.
They did say they thought it was suspicious that they saw a shadow on my ovary but then said it could of been a cyst & ive heard nothing about it since :/

I’m being treated for an ectopic & will be having methotrexate injection Monday
They also gave me the option to leave it & do nothing or keyhole surgery to diagnose it & remove there and then but because my hcg is only at 80 odd it’s only very very small so the injection will hopefully stop the cells from dividing & clear remaining tissue.
Not looking forward to it at all .. the dr also said we can’t try again for 6 months but everywhere I’ve ready online says 3 months just to allow everything to of left my system when my hcg gets back to 0.
Ah gosh I really had no idea this is what people have to go through and my heart goes out to anyone who is going through a similar thing I wouldn’t wish this on anyone x

I'm so sorry
I've never had an ectopic but read on here people having to wait 3 months adter that injection, maybe to do with something in it? Not sure why.
This is so unfair for you

Awhh hun
Drs usually overestimate so they can't be blamed for anything. If you feel comfortable trying again after 3 months then do it. Xx

You poor love.

I think with the methotrexate it is quite important you wait because it is highly toxic and can cause birth defects if you conceive too soon after.

I had surgery for a ruptured ectopic and removal of a Fallopian tube in March. I have today given birth to a baby boy conceived 5 weeks after that surgery. If I can help in any way please don’t hesitate to ask. Perhaps watching for a few more Days might be an option to see if the hcg goes down on its own?

Thank you for the kind words
Yeah he said it’s because it may still be in my system , I guess we will sort some form on contraception out for the next 3 months just in case. I just can’t wait for all this to be over now, get my cycles back to normal so we can try again in a few months.
They did say they want to do another blood test before just to see whether my levels have gone up or down anymore since Tuesday.
It’s so reassuring Torino to hear that you have gone on to have a little boy.
