Ectopic stories anyone? I really dont feel well

Postby Showersandrainbows » Thu Feb 27, 2014 12:49 pm

Anyone got experience of ectopic pregnancy?? Im 6 days overdue a period which i thought started today but turns out its a small amount of brown blood so far. Im getting neg hpts. I have been in agony with af cramps for the last 6 days which have alternated sides and now seem like a permanent middle cramp. Ive started feeling a bit nauseous now too. I have never had this amount of continous pain before af before and im actually thinking of going to the gp tomorrow first thing. Im worried i may have an ectopic but with a neg hpt i think the gp will most prob send me away thinking im just a whining woman with af pains!! i can honestly say the constant af pain im getting is so out of the ordinary for me it freaking me out. I feel really tearful too and abdomen feels tight. Im looking for anyone whos had an ectopic who can advise me on what is a sign???do i sound like i have one?

I had an EP but I got a bfp at 11 dpo (very faint). I was pretty worried because my tests were not getting darker very quickly. I had no other sxs before it ended up rupturing at 6w6d and it was so painful I took 2 xs tylenol, paced around the house in tears clutching my back and then just layed on the floor curled up hoping it would go away. It didn't feel like AF pain at all. It was high up under my ribs on the back and the dr thought it might be kidney stones but it wasn't. I had pain for an hr and a half before I started bleeding and I knew for sure it was a ruptured EP when the blood started.

6-7 weeks is usually when ruptures occur but everyone is different. I have heard of people who have spotting but no pain (no rupture though) and some with no sxs.

If you are worried you could ask for a beta, but it could be a multitude of other things, including a cyst, or it could be nothing. One thing I learned after all of this was to trust my instincts and stand up for myself. I always put off getting checked out because I think I might be over reacting or because no one believes me. I won't do that again.

Thanks so much for your reply and knowledge. Still got pain on waking, not as bad, just dull. Bit of red blood this morning so maybe ill just have a massive period now and that will be it. Seems so odd to have pain for so long with no bleeding. Sounds like it would be much more intense by now if it were ectopic. I definately think ive got some sort of cyst tho. I wonder if you can just ask to be referred to be scanned for these? Im prime age to get something like that i think.

Hey showers, how are you now? Just seen this thread. Like B i had pain on one side but i didn't have the classic symptoms of ectopic, i had extremely blunt pain in my lower right back, it never eased up until i had the lap surgery. It felt like a blunt object was lodged in my back up probably where my kidney would be, im hindsight this was my tube stretching :shock: It was so strange i will never forget it, i also had a strange stretching feeling over my stomach around the time my brown spotting started. And around that time i was getting incredibly bloated after i had eaten just a small meal, i felt like i was having a 'bump' too early. This all happened around 6-7 weeks. Hope you are ok. I never got the shoulder tip pain, the front or side abdominal pain, or collapse. My tube eventually ruptured and the day after the hospital finally got the finger out.
