I have had two doses of Methotrexate. My beta HCG are dropping, my blood counts are normal. My ectopic is located in my left tube. I was diagnosed on Oct 25. It was less than 3cm, so I was given Methotrexate. Went in for U/S on NOvember 1st. Mass grew to 5.8cms. Given second dose of Methotrexate. Went in for 2 more u/s, both indicated it growing. Todays result measured 7.6cms. My beta hcg went from 2600 to 65. Is what I am experiencing normal regarding my mass growing (no heartbeat or indication of it living) and betahcgs dropping? Thank you
