I had emergency surgery on Monday for an ectopic pregnancy, and they had to remove both of my tubes, unfortunately. My OB, who did the surgery, said there is no particular period that I should wait before starting IVF.
I'm in two minds - I really want to get PG as soon as possible, to help move past this tragedy, but when I got my big fat surprise positive (a natural pregnancy after doing IVF in 2011), I was freaking out about being pregnant (which was difficult for me) and the prospect of having two kids under 21months.
So what would you do? Transfer a frostie ASAP, or wait a few months to fully process what's happened to me? I've never had an abortion or miscarriage, in fact, this is the only time I've ever fallen PG naturally.

Both tubes removed after (natural) ectopic PG on 27/5/13
