This is my story tidbit that I just posted. Don't give up hope. I was 21 when it happened to me. I went through years suffering. I recommend finding a doctor that has gone through one herself. That helped me feel like I was being heard about any discomfort or taken serious with any issue. I doubt you will have a bunch of issues like I did that followed. Put your health as your top priority. Heal you and your heart. If I can get pregnant again, you definitely can. I wasn't on any special medication either, just a thyroid support I picked up at a hippie shop. Don't be discouraged. You will get pregnant when you least expect it.

Racquel, please also be advised that answers on here are not usually immediate. It depends on which members are on line and looking for posts for which they have relevant advice to give.

So sorry for your loss. I know it is devastating to go through the things you have. But, there is no reason to feel guilty, just sometimes these things happen.

First, you should let your body and your emotions heal. I understand that you are anxious to have a baby, but you need to be healthy first. Technically, you can start trying to conceive again at any time. But I would recommend waiting a month or two to let your body recuperate from the pregnancies and surgery.

Second, most women don't alternate ovulating from one ovary then the next. So, when you do start to try again, you need to be having sex each month around your ovulation time (or every 2-3 days if you're not tracking). You won't know which ovary will have a mature egg ready to release, so cover your bases.

Third, there's usually no limit to the number of caesarean sections that you can have, if you don't have complications and are healthy.

There's probably nothing else I can say to bring you nay comfort. But you can get through this. Talk to your doctor, and see what they say about your chances for conception and carrying a baby to term. Most likely it is possible for you.

I currently at home recovering from a leaking ectopic pregnancy which I had an emergency Lt Salpigectomy done to remove my left fallopian tube. I have a 9yr old daughter. I had a non viable pregnancy in April 2015 and now an ectopic in December 2015. I feel so down and worthless like I did something wrong. How soon after can I ttc again? This would be my second Ceasarian Section. How many Ceasarian cuts should a woman have done? Can I atleast get pregnant again? I keep keep hearing mixed answers and having mixed emotions. Someone please help me I dont feel like I can go on

Hi my name is Racquel I am 32yrs old. I have a daughter who is 9yrs old. In January 2015 my hubby and I decided that its time for another child we've been trying since January. In April I was happy to have had a positive pregnancy test. At 6weeks I visited my Doctor for a routine check, and he told me to get an ultrasound done, unfortunately it showed an empty sac and I had a D and C done for that none viable pregnancy. After period was regularised in June we decided to try again we tried for 3 cycles but was only lucky on the forth one which is in November 2015. At 7weeks I did an ultrasound and it showed that it was a leaking ectopic pregnancy, the embryo was in my left fallopian tube. I had emergency LT Salpigectomy done and my left tube removed, however both my ovaries are still in place. I am now at home recovering but feel so guilty as if I did something wrong. I just keep crying while holding my wound because I got a C Section to remove it. Nothing seem to be able to comfort me at this point, because I saw my little embryo on that ultrasound and the HB active. As anyone been through this, how soon after can I ttc again? How many CSections can a woman have?, because I had a C Section for my daughter. I REALLY NEED HELP I DONT FEEL LIKE I CAN GO ON.
