Hugs. Thoughts and prayers your way that baby will do just fine. One positive that you can take away from this is that baby did not implant into the tube which would have been much much more dangerous for you.So although the baby implanted pretty high atleast there is still a chance for a healthy pregnancy. Hugs and best wishes.View Thread
I would take a test to be sure or stop into the doctor and ask to be tested. With the doctor, if you test came up negative then they could do a further work up on you as to why you haven't had a period (ie ovarian cysts, lack of hormones or something else). If you don't have insurance or you are concerned about family finding out before you are ready you have the option of going to a planned parenthood or family planning facility and because you are over the age of 13 they cannot legally tell your parents anything without your permission. They can then get you set up for visits with an OB or you can see a midwife there. They can councel you to an extent as well. And like the pp you and your bf will need to sit down and talk about the next steps and how you want to proceed after you find out. I am not judging as I have had a few family members who got pregnant and delivered babies at 16. While young they still managed and they have healthy children but you do need a support system.

According to my OB she said that it is better to use a rescue inhalor if you need it then not use it and have worse things happen. I have asthma as well and I have had a few respiratory illness which makes it very hard to deal with breathing because the asthma kicks in. She even gave me a refill of the albuterol inhalor just in case. When I look up the Salbutamol it pulls up the albuterol name and information so I am thinking it is the same way.This is some of the information I pulled from our clinical pharmacology site at work.
Pregnancy Albuterol is classified as a pregnancy risk category C drug. Beta-agonists can interfere with uterine contractility as a result of its beta-adrenergic-mediated relaxant effects on smooth muscle (oral > inhalation). Despite this precaution, the 2004 guidelines of the National Asthma Education and Prevention Program (NAEPP) Asthma and Pregnancy Working Group include short-acting inhaled beta2-agonists as first line therapy for mild intermittent asthma during pregnancy, if treatment is required. Albuterol is preferred over other short-acting beta2-agonists due to extensive safety-related information during pregnancy. However, there is no evidence of fetal injury with the use of other short-acting inhaled beta2-agonists, and maintaining a previously established treatment regimen may be more beneficial to the patient.View Thread
It won't give you a false reading however, some women do not show up on urine pregnancy tests for whatever reason. You should consider making an OB/GYN appt for lack of periods and tell them you are known for not showing up on urine pregnancy tests and they may choose to do a blood test or an u/s.

Hugs. I am sorry that this ended the way that it did, but glad they were able to catch what happened with the tube itself and that they were able to take care of the situation before it became anymore life threatening. It does sound like it was for the best and now you know that the left tube is perfect and less of a shot at another ectopic pregnancy. Will look forward to seeing you come back in the future to start ttc again. I would highly recommend the ttc after loss board when you do come back. Its an amazing group that really helped me when I went through my loss and they are all super supportive. Some of them are going through fertility treatments (IUI's, in the last few months 2 of them went through IVF and have had successful pregnancies and others are tracking their cycles/ovulation and some are just hoping that things will happen). So lots of different experiences there. Its one of the more active groups as well. I wish you the best and hope that you get your happy ending at the end of the tunnel. Contninue to stay positive. Hugs.View Thread
http://planbonestep.com/what-to-know-plan-b.aspx and http://www.fwhc.org/birth-control/ecinfo.htm I know that you had posted this earlier in the week. But thought you should read this site which is in regards to plan B. The sites should shed some light in regards to how it works. Generally the calendar is not correct for everyone either. Meaning she could ovulate later or earlier. But as a general not its 12-14 days prior to the next period (meaning if she has a 31 day cycle she may ovulate around Cycle Day 17-19 but again it can range). Only time will tell. But one thing to note is to breathe. You guys did take the precaution of the plan b pill, Read the links and hopefully that will shed some light on things. One of them is the direct site to plan b and the other talks about how it works a little more.View Thread
this is the list for meds safe during pregnancy via webmd. Plain sudafed is what was recommended to me and then I eventually was prescribed a nasal spray as well since it was continuous. If the sudafed doesn't help though I would mention it to the doctor. I was told on wednesday during my appt ( i had head cold with respiratory issues and i am asthmatic) that if I saw any green junk coming out of my nose (verses draining down the back of my throat yuck) to let them know because it is unlikely that I would be able to fight the infection on my own and they would just treat it. Feel better.View Thread
