Clomid and Ectopic

Postby sara_2016baby » Mon Apr 18, 2016 2:59 pm

Hi everyone - I'm new here but I know it's a super informative place so I'm hoping to get some insight! I'm 36 and ttc for about a year now. All my tests are normal and there's nothing that explains my infertility. So I had my first cycle of Clomid 50mg, cd 3-7 in December and got pregnant. But unfortunately it was ectopic. I was lucky to have caught it early and didn't need surgery, just a methotrexate shot worked. I had an hsg done 2 weeks ago and everything looks good, both tubes are open. So no real explanation as to why I had the ectopic. Fast forward to now, cd 1 of the first month that I'm going to ttc again. I'm obviously nervous because I'd hate for it to happen again. My real concern is whether I should be worried about taking Clomid again. Should I lower the dose? Could that have been a potential cause? Wondering if anyone's had a similar experience. Would love some input. Thanks!

I've never used clomid but I did have an ectopic with no causes. After I had an HSG and everything was clear. I'm now 8 weeks pregnant and have already seen a healthy heartbeat in the right spot. I know how scary it can be but trust yourself and your doctors. Good luck!!!

Thank you, it's nice to hear good stories. And congratulations! How many cycles after the HSG did you get a positive?

Sorry I didn't see your question before. I had an hsg in November, but we didn't start trying again until January. I got a positive hpt the first week in April.
