Ectopic and Infertility

Davis and Stein's picture

Two weeks after our long-awaited positive, we found it was an ectopic pregnancy. We were devastated. Now I want answers to why. Can I still get pregnant without treatment? Will it turn out to be normal? I feel hopeless and all alone. My family is more tuned in to my sister being pregnant and forgetting about my loss. I hope you can help! Read Debbie and Mara's reply.

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I had my tubes untied in September 2003 and I have still not gotten pregnant. I am 32, I have two children 10 and 12 had no problem getting pregnant with them. My husband had a sperm count, number good. I had the test to make sure tubes were open, both are open. We generally have sex on average 4 to 5 times per week. No luck. Any suggestions?

Please help, I am getting older fast.

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I turned 40 this past July and I am now seriously thinking of having a baby but I have some real concerns. Am I too old? Would I be putting a child at a high risk of mental impairments? Would deliverer be harder or riskier?

I had a scare that I was pregnant and the thought of it consumed me I was very disappointed that the test was negative. I just don't want to put a child at risk. Thank you for taking the time to talk with me.

Sincerely,
Cheriss
