I recently (june 8th) had a cornual eptopic pregnancy removed before rupture occurred via laparotomy (due to dense pelvic adhesions). My IVF specialist who performed the op has advised me it is too risky for me to have another pregnancy, mainly because of uterine rupture due to the resection in the uterus but also due to my adhesions making emergency procedures very hard. Did you have any probs with this pregnancy after your resection? Its really hard to find any info about pregnancy after this procedure. I am going to consult with my obstetrician who delivered my son to get another perspective on it but my specialist is so adamant on this. Was you given the same advice? Did you seek further opinion on it? Sorry to bombard you but I feel at such a loss. I am not coping too well with losing a pregnancy and being told not to have anymore so any advice will be greatly appreciated.
    I wish you all the best with your new bub.
    Many thanks XX
    I know this was addressed to LMB, but I too have had a ruptured cornual ectopic - this was 3 months following a tubal ectopic.

    I went on to have two healthy babies. The first one I was also told I would be unable to birth naturally. I was never told that it would be unsafe to fall pregnant, but like LMB I was informed that I would be considered high-risk.

    I had a c'sect for my first baby.

    I had a homebirth for my second baby.

    Both events went according to plan


    Good luck xx

    Default Cornual Etopic

    I had a cornual etopic pregnancy at 7 weeks thru IVF, i had a medical termination which was absolutely horrific. That was followed up with a dose of methotrexate, unfortunately the placenta kept growing and ruptured. I was rushed into emergency surgery where i lost 2 litres of blood and had 4 transfusions. The suregon said my uterus was not damaged and i can try IVF again later this year but i am petrified it will happen again, has anyone heard of someone having multiple cornual etopic pregnancies?

    The whole experience has shattered my soul and made me lost faith that i will EVER be a Mum

    Hi Lovinmybub,

    I had a cornual etopic pregnancy at 7 weeks thru IVF, we had been trying so long to get pregnant. After having keyhole surgery to have a look around to see what was going on they discovered by tubes were badly diseased and had to be removed, After a failed round of IVF i was finally pregnant, at the 7 week ultrasound they found the baby was growing outside my uterus and i had to have a medical termination, that was horrific. It got worse as the placenta kept growing and eventuall ruptured causing me to have emergency surgery to remove the pregnancy, i lost 2 litres of blood and had 4 transfusions. I was so very lucky not to have any damage to my uterus and the surgeon said i can try again later this year, i am petrified to try again in case the same thing happens. It has changed who i am and not in a good way, i absolutely know how u feel and my heart breaks for you xxx

    Karen, I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. It is absolutely heartbreaking to lose a baby, and to have to deal with the added physical pain you experienced is awful.

    Please don't lose hope. After my cornual ectopic it took me a year to even want to try again, but if I hadn't tried I wouldn't have my gorgeous 3 week old boy. Let yourself grieve and heal. It is hard to move on, but there is nothing you did to make this happen and nothing you could have done to avoid it. Unfortunately it was just one of those unfair things that happen in life, but there is no reason to believe it will happen to you again.

    Hi Ladies,
    LMB, congrats on the safe arrival of your little boy. I have been for follow ups following my cornual eptopic so am a little better informed of what went on in my surgery. My specialist ended up having to remove approx 1/6th of my uterus hence why he is so adamant that I should not attempt IVF again as a pregnancy could rupture my uterus. I am going for some sort of ultrasound where they insert a small amount of saline into the uterus so you can get a good look around and see how it has healed and how much muscle is left in the right corner. We will wait for the results of this before making the decision whether to implant the last embryo we have in storage. My specialist has been very sympathetic and is willing to explore every avenue with me so I feel happy with my decision. I have also been to consult with my obstetrician who delivered my son and he is happy to take me on if I should go ahead with it, although he said I would give him grey hairs!!! I am feeling much better these days, all your stories are truley inspiring and nice to know we are not alone, although it sometimes feels like we are. I will update with any further news and I wish everybody success with their journeys. My baby boy turns 3 today so I am of to prepare food for the party, wish me luck!!

    Hi Karen 76,
    So sorry for your loss, it truly is one of the most heart breaking experiences ever. I had 13 transfers before ANY of them worked!! My son was transfer 14 after 3 years I think (I lost count!!). About 7 of those were after my tubes were cut. My cornual was my 2nd attempt for number 2 so I have had many transfers and only 1 cornual. Please dont give up hope, I know I felt like it many times. Positivity is so important. Keep us updated with your journey, I know we will hear good news soon

    Thanks Ploddypop for your kind words, my biggest fear is it happening again or the treatment not working. We have our app with a new Dr in 2 weeks to see if it's ok to start IVF again and i pray that she says all is ok. The thought of more invasive tests..YUCK!!! It's been a year today since i had both tubes removed, i can't believe how much has happened since then , i try to stay positive but with disappointment after disappointment it's hard to keep my chin up. I just hope next time the little one plants in the right place

    Thats my biggest fear thinking it will happen again, i'm doing lotsa of research trying to find out if anyone has had 2 cornual etopics in the same place i had mine. So far none thanks Goodness. We have our dr app in 2 weeks and hopefully i get the ok to try IVF again...fingers crossed

    Ladies

    your stories have all touched my heart, I have just last week had to endure the heartbreak of an ectopic and the loss of my right tube. I am just feeling so betrayed and angry, it's just so not fair.

    How long did it take to be ready to TTC again, and how long to get a ?
