    Default Possible ectopic? Low prgesterone..Please help

    I have just found out that i am pregnant.. after 2 chemicals (not even 4 weeks yet.) aside from suspecting another chemical due to constant cramping and slow rising HCG.. i am paranoid about an ectopic pregnancy.

    Sometimes when i am laying on my back i can feel twinges of pain in the area of my left ovary

    What can i do about this?

    I will be taking my HCG results to my fertility specialist on tuesday and was considering asking for a transvaginal ultra sound which would be done at around 5 weeks (if i last that long)... i am guessing by then they can notice if something is forming where it shouldnt?

    Also i just got my progesterone measured at only 21 (4 weeks). should i ask for a supplement on Tuesday?

    Hi Simil, sorry you are going through so much.

    I have had an ectopic in the past. I was told sometimes they can see something on the ultrasound that early but sometimes not. It's hard to know so early & hopefully it's not an ectopic. I know I had twinges & all sorts with some of my chemicals.

    I'd suggest ringing your clinic earlier than Tuesday (if possible) to see if you can get some progesterone & to discuss your fears with them.

    If you do experience a worsening of pain or any of the other ectopic symptoms eg. shoulder tip pain or 'prune juice bleeding' (tmi it's a really strange discharge - very different to anything i'd ever had before) don't be afraid to head to a doctor or emergency - it's best to get it checked out.

    I've got everything crossed for you & hope everything turns out good for you. I'd say try not to worry but I know it's very hard!!! Take care x
