Ectopic Pregnancy Recovery

Have you or a family member gone through an ectopic pregnancy? How long did it take you to recover?

At the beginning of March I was diagnosed as being ectopically pregnant (the fetus residing in the tube rather than the uterus). We caught it early enough that I was able to receive a methotrexate (chemo) shot instead of going through surgery. My hormone levels just yesterday returned to zero. I am still bleeding and periodically get some non-severe pain/cramping near that tube and ovary. My doctor has said that it could take months for the bleeding and pain to stop. What have your experiences been?

My sister went through it, but unfortunately she needed to have a tube removed. She was OK after about a month and now has two boys.

A friend of mine had an ectopic pregnancy, and conceived again about a month later with a perfectly normal pregnancy. She had a little girl less than a month ago.
