I was diagnosed with ectopic pg earlier this week and after a hospital stay I had the methotrexate shot on Wed.
I've been noticing I still have twinges on my left where the ectopic is, and after researching found most hcG's continue to rise until 4 days after the shot, which I found a relief, and also that the sac swells.
I'm having all these feelings of guilt that the shot was in essence, an abortion, something which for my body alone, goes completely against my morals. i know it's totally illogical and silly. Without the shot best case scenario I would have ruptured a tube and lost it, worse case I'd be dead.
Having had a m/c in nov last year the feelings of ectoptic are different. Fear the shot hasn't worked and worrying for a week to see my counts come down. Insane guilt. I'm feeling even more lost than in Nov.
I guess I just need to chat to other women that have been thru this....
