Hi there! I first want to welcome you to the forum and am so glad you found us. I'm looking forward to getting to know you as it is always nice to share your journey. I'm so sorry to hear about your ectopic pregnancy. That truly IS devastating and losing a tube is scary. I'm glad you are alright though! I HATE that I have to tell you this but you are supposed to wait after an ectopic pregnancy to try again. The minimum most doctors recommend is 3 to 4 months. The reason is that the closer you become pregnant to when you had the ectopic, the higher the incidence of having another. And you do NOT want that, I know! I know the idea of waiting when we are our age and you want another is really hard. but it is probably best in this case. Plus your body and emotions can heal. I had my kids right under 40 and women are having babies later and later.
So, I'd try to wait it out for those 3 months. Definitely you can try again and getting pregnant is a possibility. But you just don't want to risk another ectopic. Remember lots of women get pregnant with one tube! Fingers crossed that this happens easily with you. Oh, and Artificial insemination is always an option that is less expensive/invasive than IVF that you could consider if it proves harder than it was getting pregnant this time naturally. And at three months post pregnancy,, you will still have hormones that would support another pregnancy. So, all of that is good.
Anyway, again welcome, sorry about your loss and glad you found us. By the way, I also have a 14 year old son. He makes me want to pull my hair out sometimes. lol
Ah, you are so welcome! I hope you come back and let me know how it is going! We can commiserate on 14 year olds. ha ha. But seriously, it will all work out sweetie.
