I experienced no pain from my cystoscopy. They numb the area by pushing in a gel with a syringe. Only feels a little cold and feels like you are holding the tip while trying to urinate.

I had an ectopic pregnancy, and was told by several doctors and specialists that it was due to getting pregnant the first month after coming off the pill, I didn't even have a period in between. Apparently the chemicals are still in your blood stream and slow the egg from travelling through the tube.

I have two children. After twelve years of tubectomy I wonder if there is a chance of ectopic pregnancy. I missed my period. And I am getting stomach pain and chest pain.

I want to confirm that I had an ectopic pregnancy in October of this year. I am very depressed and want to have the baby as soon as possible. I don't know if there is any risk in my second pregnancy as first was ectopic.
