I also had an ectopic pregnancy and yet I got pregnant again within like 9 months! And I was on the Ortho Evra patch at the time. Not saying I never wanted to have kids, but I usually go to school full-time (except for this past Spring semester 2009 where I dropped to part-time) and I'm trying to get my Degree A.S.A.P. cuz I am an older non-traditional student, so time is $$$$.
I never had anything but the methotrexate shot. NO surgery whatsoever, fortunately for me.
I have never had any STD's. However, for myself what most likely caused my Ectopic pregnancy was the fact I have had endometriosis symptoms since age 15 (which may eventually render me infertile). This condition causes me to vomit every period unless I take an OC or some stronger meds. It also causes severe dymennorhea.
This pregnancy (technically my 2nd, but my first child, and also come to think of it, I had no morning sickness the FIRST pregnancy either, lol and I was nearly 8 weeks along when it ended)...I have had no morning sickness (unless you count mild and rare nausea) and that was awesome for a woman whose periods can cause her to throw up at the smell of bacon and other odors, without medication to control it. This time, except for some unexplained bleeding for nearly 2 weeks during my 2nd or 3rd month, which could be because at time I was walking miles and miles each week (I thought, "OH boy, another ectopic?) I was have been doing great and have had no unexplained bleeding since early trimester.
I just had a 3rd trimester check-up today and have gained 22 lbs so far. (4 during first trimester, and 5 lbs a month each month beginning at 20 weeks, believe it or not...). Baby is always active and kicking up a storm. He was boxing in his nearly-15-week ULtrasound, lol. Incidentally, I do absolutely no routine exercise this pregnancy since my bedrest for light bleeding. I do get exercise but it's not a routine and it's very much just "around the house" not planned. (I know, not exactly "super-healthy", but I feel like I don't want to overdo after the bleeding and I have a wonderful OB Team of Doctors and Nurses and Staff support so if I need to step it up, I can and will!)
Timing is everything. Be in a committed relationship. My husband and I are due to have a boy in a few months. The less stress the body is under the better for your maintaining and keeping a healthy pregnancy.
Any questions message me.

It could be a continued pregnancy with is very possible with a medical abortion. If you had a surgical abortion you should be fine, because the doctor will physically see the pregnancy pass. But if you had a medical abortion where they have you take the pills at home that induce a miscarriage then you may want to go to the doctor and they can do an ultrasound to see if there is still a pregnancy. It could just be that your hormones are still a little crazy right now too. Just keep your doctor informed, they will know what to do, and what is normal! Good Luck!

sorry hun, but its a bit like a balloon once its been blown up, it cant go back to its original size, ( i know some girls do, my sis is a grear example) but if it was gonna happen it would have by now if your back to your prepregnancy weight.
Please dont stress about it, the only real solution is plastic surgery.
Why not look at it as a sign of what u gave to your man and your kids, like a gift?
If its your first child its a bit of a shock that the body changes so much but you will get used to it
Hey you know what? all my friends hate their 'babey bellies' cos of what they think their partners will think
Most men really dont care, specially the father of the children, they are often in awe of what the women went through and love her even more for it

Usually you don't bleed during the whole pregnancy. Some women with ectopics don't bleed at all, but they simply develop pain.
But bleeding can occur. Bleeding can happen at any time, just as in regular pregnancy. (25% of normal pregnancies have spotting or bleeding.)
Frequently the bleeding is due to poor progesterone support. Most tubal pregnancies aren't at great risk for rupture until 6 weeks after your last menstrual period. A ruptured ectopic is a surgical emergency and is the No.1 cause of maternal death in the first trimester.
If this is a concern for you, you should get an ultrasound at 5-6 weeks. At this point, the pregnancy can be seen in the uterus.
Assuming that you were not using fertility medications, if there is a pregnancy in the uterus there is only a 1/30,000 chance of there also being one in the tube.

The first symptom that is usually reported by women with ectopic pregnancies is light vaginal bleeding or spotting, which is accompanied by one-sided pelvic pain. The pain is often described as sharp or stabbing and the intensity may vary at intervals. In severe cases such that of a ruptured ectopic pregnancy, pelvic pain may be associated with abdominal pain that radiates to the shoulder or neck. Other symptoms to look out for are dizziness, low back pain, hypotension or low blood pressure, nausea and vomiting.
Ectopic pregnancies do not resolve on their own. Treatment of an ectopic pregnancy may vary, and it can largely depend on whether there is an immediate need for surgery. In cases of a ruptured fallopian tube, an emergency surgery is needed in order to stop the bleeding. If the fallopian tube and ovary are damaged, removal may be necessary. But if the condition is detected early and the fallopian tube is still intact, a laparoscopic surgery may be performed to remove the embryo and to repair the damage. This procedure is less invasive because only a small incision is needed for the repairs to be done.
For a pregnancy that is not very far along, surgery is usually not the first option because a drug called Methotrexate is usually enough to halt the development of pregnancy. But regardless of the treatment option, doctors would still continue to monitor a woman?s hCG levels to ensure that pregnancy was successfully terminated. If hCG levels remain elevated, additional treatment methods may be necessary either through medications or even surgery.
Hope this helps!
