My ectopic pregnancy was treated with two shots of methotrexate, one in each thigh.

It started on a Monday, pain in my lower abdominal area that hurt into the colon but went away. Tuesday morning it hurt and wouldn’t quit. My period was late by maybe a week and my breasts were tender but I get that before I start. Well, the pain was so bad I went to the hospital and by the way, I had my tubes tied 7 years ago. The doctor came back and said I was pregnant. After an ultra sound it was found to be in my fallopian tube and it was ruptured. They had to remove part of my tube as well as the ectopic pregnancy. I am home recovering. I am sore and having bouts of anxiety from all the stress of yesterday.

I did not know I was pregnant. I have endometriosis so when I was I having pains in my lower stomach and side, I thought they were normal pains associated with my endometriosis. So I called the doctor to be seen for pain management. The doctor rudely told me I was pregnant and that it wasn’t in my uterus so could be ectopic, but she couldn’t perform the surgery if necessary, so referred me to another doctor. He then told me I needed the surgery and he was to remove my tube also without even asking my permission to do so.
