Period after ectopic pregnancy
I' ve had an ectopic pregnancy and lost my right tube on 10/1/2009. I' ve had some spotting around three weeks and four weeks afterwards. But still no period. I know it is not possible for me to be pregnant, but should I be worried about the spotting? The one time it was bright red and the other time almost black.

When should I expect me first period, it has almost been 5 weeks

The spotting sounds normal. It can take up to 8 weeks before you have a period.
