This is something which has been really upsetting me for over 10 years now. I was married and tried to conceive and had an ectopic pregnancy, at the time I didn't know what this was... I was in extreme pain and was rushed to the hospital as my tube had ruptured.
I tried again to conceive and was pregnant with another eptopic pregnancy, Dr (name removed by mods for legal reasons) performed surgery and the egg in it's early stages was removed from my fallopolian tube.
After this we decided to try IVF. On the third attempt I was pregnant after the embro was implanted in my uterus and thought all my dreams had came true. I was not aware that I could have another eptopic pregnancy with this procedure and was given no warning of this. I started bleeding heavily (the egg made it's way up the scared tube from my uterus) and was admitted to hospital with another eptopic pregnancy.
*text removed by moderator* (My Doctor) then decided while I was under antisetic WITHOUT MY CONSENT to cut and tie my only working tube (the other had been ruptured with the first eptopic pregnancy). He though that this would help my chances of conceiving in the future so as the egg implanted in the uterus from IVF would not be able to make it's way up my remaining only tube, the one which was scared and damaged.
Are doctors able to have the right to do this without your consent, because I have always wanted a baby the natural way and think this could have been quite possible if this chance had not been taken away from me.
Please let me know your thoughts, or if you're a lawyer, where do I stand in all of this.
