Customer Question
I suffered an ectopic pregnancy...
I suffered an ectopic pregnancy April last year and still do not think I am over it. We have been trying on and off to concieve again without success but every month is a bigger gap to my 9 & 7yr children. I don't know whether having another child is the only way to truly move on or whether I am just distracting myself from moving on with life in another way. I am scared of regreting my decision either way. I do get depressed every month my period arrives and this month I found myself crying in the shower about it. I don't know how long to continue trying.

Hello:

Please see your doctor. You are depressed, and believe me, having a child is not the way to get over your depression and grief. You need medication and therapy.

You don't mention whether your husband is supportive. I hope he is weighing in.

You are not in the right state of mind to make the decision whether or not to have another child. Please get some professional help with this. You really can't do this alone.

I wish you the very best and I promise that things will better if you reach out.

Warmest regards,

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
