Hi there

I am really down ATM. I have been ttc since August and looks like im about to get AF again... I lost the right tube 3 years ago and I'm finding it hard not being preg as before the ectopic  I fell preg in the first month . It's the not knowing part that's hard I guess. Not knowing if its ever going to happen again.
Anybody not fall preg or took a long time after an ectopic ?

Sorry for your loss OP.

I had my ectopic pregnancy 5.5yrs ago, I lost my right tube as well.

We were TTC #2 at the time, and resumed TTC a few months later. Took about 7 months to finally conceive. We then went onto TTC#3 pretty much as soon as #2 was born, but it took 14 months (I was also breastfeeding at the time). For #4, it was about 9mths of casually TTC (again while breastfeeding).

Good luck, I hope your period is a no show, and you're pregnant very soon!

I had a ruptured ectopic pregnancy years ago, and it had such a devastating effect on my body, I was told I could no longer conceive.
I fell pregnant 15 months later and gave birth to a healthy baby girl. Four and a half years later, her sister was born. We used no contraception the entire time, but we also weren't trying o conceive (mostly because we didn't think we could).

Im so sorry you have been through an ectopic, i also lost my tube back in 2009, i was lucky enough to fall pg again in 3 months (now my 2 year old daughter) however i have now been actively ttc #4 for nearly a year and no luck sad.gif I think it all depends on which side you are ovulating etc, good luck i hope it happens soon.

I had an ectopic and tube removed in 2009. I fell pregnant with my DD 9months after ttc (we had to stop for 3months as I had a pelvic infection and then a bowel abcess from the surgery) My DD is now 2years old and I have been ttc for over a year and no BFP. It has been getting me down as this is now the longest I have been without falling pregnant. It took 3years to get DD but I did fall pregnant 3 times in that time they just didn't stick.

Hi OP, I had one ruptured ectopic and then another one right after that, last year, and lost my left tube.  We have been TTC #2 for about 7 months with no luck so far, I feel for you.  Wish I could offer you something practical other than sympathy, but I have heard as many positive stories as negative ones about falling pregnant again.  X.
