I have a 99% chance of miscarrying (HCG levels very low and very slow to climb and spotting/bleeding). With those symptoms in mind, they will do ultrasound this week to see if I have ectopic/tubal pregnancy.
Everything I’ve read has said that there is a medication that keeps the embryo from growing and allows for a “natural” abortion/miscarriage which also saves the tube for a future pregnancy. The other option is surgery to remove tube before it bursts.
I’m praying this is NOT a tubal pregnancy of course. But I’m curious – at this point in pregnancy and with my numbers so low, the baby is most likely not viable and a heartbeat will not be detectable.
I’m unsure about the teachings of the church as far as what I can do. From what I’ve read on Catholic sites so far, my tube has to burst and I have to put my life at risk before doctors can step in without committing a sin myself or having doctors commit sin by removing embryo. Is this possibly true?
