Hi all, I'm new to here. Glad I found this forum but I don't find similar cases like me. Basically I was dignosed with ectopic pregnancy, but I have different symtoms like others. Below is my timeline:
12/15/2010 - TTC
12/27/2010 - Period (but afterwards I realised it's not a true period)
1/72011 - Went for vacation with hubby and planned to TTC
1/8/2011 - spotting
1/12/2011 - Back from vacation without sex at all, and still spotting
1/14 - First time seeing gyn, urine test positive, beta 643, nothing found in u/s, still spotting
1/17 - Second beta just to confirm if it is growing, result was 710, yes it is growing, nothing found under ultrasound, still spotting
1/19 - Third beta to check any ectopic possibility, result was 776, not good, had metho, start bleeding
1/24 - First time checking beta after metho, result was 805, gyno said it's fine when growing slightly, bleeding with clots
1/29 - Sac came out, it was sized like an egg! Still bleeding but with less clots
1/31 - Second beta after metho, result 633, it's coming down, still bleeding with less clots
2/17 - Third beta after metho, result 188, it's like a relif! Slightly heavier than spotting in dark red
2/21 - Had my first Chinese medical treatment, had acupunture shrink the uterus and push the "old blood" away. Also received 5 days Chinese medicine: 2 days of clearing blood, 3 days of building new blood. However, still bleeding after the treatment.
2/28 -Second Chinese medical treatment, received another 5 days medicine, all related to strengthen blood, kidney, liver and uterus. Still bleeding
3/1 - Heavier bleeding in bright red
3/2 - Heavy bleeding in bright red, just like an ordinary period, and I had all symtoms like breast pain, abdomin pain, insomia, emotion changes
3/3 - Heavy bleeding in bright red (strange is I usually have so much big clots in period, but this time with very little and smaller clots)
3/4 - Still bleeding, but coming down
3/5 - Still bleeding, colour getting darker
3/6 - Still bleeding, colour getting darker
3/7 - Fourth beta draw, result 2, yippie! But still bleeding. Also had u/s that blood/fluid still in uterus and abdomin. Woke up with no blood, but bleeding after few hours working.
3/8 - Woke up with no blood, but bleeding after few hours working, less amount than 3/7
3/9 - Woke up with no blood, start having brown mucus and very very small amount of blood
3/10 - Woke up with no blood, still with brown mucus but no red thing coming out
3/11 - No blood still, but a brown clot came out in evening
3/12 - Brown mucus
3/13 - Brown mucus, and I started to take Chinese medicine again
3/14 - Red mucus, NO, red returns!!!
3/15-17 - Red mucus and blood alike came out.
Thanks for reading this long timeline. As you may be realised my question is, why am I bleeding, for so so long?! I asked my gyn yesterday, she said this on and off bleeding is very normal, because hormone isn't stable, and it will be unstable for a while. She has no comment about the Chinese medication which may interfere a bit (no research if it is a good way or bad way). I have no doubt on this but I just can't see the end of sight. I wish I can be like of you, having shorter bleeding days. Please please stop.....
Does anyone experience the same? I feel so alone as most of the metho treats took one or two months to heal with regular ovulation, while mine is not ending....
