Shady ladyUser Since: Nov 2014Posts: 11Well I'm 12 weeks postpartum with my fourth child, and my pvc's are starting to make an appearance once again!
( my original username was miss spice bomb...had to make a different account as i forgot email and password! :-\ )
Well anyway, when i became pregnant for the fourth time my pvc's gradually went away! I found this quite strange as pregnancy would probably increase them.
I had none during labour and delivery and none up until about a week ago!
I'm baffled as to why they are returning when my heart is under less stress now than when pregnant, I was thinking that they were gone forever, how wrong was I.
Seems like my cure is pregnancy! And I'm not planning on any more babies!! Lol!

Has anyones ectopics gone away for months only to return out of the blue??

Cubsfan3User Since: Apr 2013Posts: 28Yes! Mine went away earlier this year for about 4-5 months. When I say went away I mean from having hundreds per day down to maybe 5-10 per day. Some days I would not have any. They slowly started to return at the end of August. Now they are back full time. Most days I can deal with them but every so often I have a day where I just cannot take them.

Shady ladyUser Since: Nov 2014Posts: 11It does make you wonder why they come and go!!
I've not done or eaten anthing different, so im baffled to why they have returned.
I sure did enjoy the time when they went away!
All i can think of that's its hormonal for me, but my cardiologist doesn't really believe that, even though ive read about other cardiologists who do agree they could be hormonal!

I'm like you, on some days i can ignore them, then on others they make me tearful and anxious especially when they go into bigeminy, god i hate that rhythm!!

Let's hope they do one again! They have before so hopefully will again!! :-)

Debs14User Since: Feb 2015Posts: 2Hi, I am new to this site but my recent symptoms sound quite similar. I had an ablation for very frequent PVCs approximately 9 years ago and since then have only had occasional PVCs however I am 13 weeks postpartum with my second child and the PVCs appear to be back with a vengeance. I am feeling really down about it as I thought they were cured for good but I guess they were just laying dormant. Just like you I didn't have any during either of my pregnancies or during labour and delivery but they have randomly returned now! I too am 33. I hate these things as they completely take over my life and I find it really hard to concentrate on anything else. It's really hard especially with two young children to look after.

Shady ladyUser Since: Nov 2014Posts: 11Hi Debs,
Sorry your having a rough time with your pvc's!
I am now six months postpartum and my pvc's have gone again...when I say gone I'm only getting a few a day and I can cope with that!
Normally I get 1-2 per minute all day :-\
I totally sympathise with you because no matter how many tests you have and all the doctors saying your fine still doesn't really help with the sensation of these things!!
I don't think anyone quite gets how you feel unless they have experienced these themselves.
At the moment I'm taking a multivitamin,garlic,and Taurine!
I don't really know if this is helping or not but I'll take the peace and quiet from heart any day! Lol!
I've always thought my ectopics were hormonal but cardiologists seem to disagree with me.
I do think that the more anxious you are though,the ectopics will increase,so try and de-stress yourself,I know this is hard but it does help!
I just try and tell myself when I'm having a bad day with these things that I've had them before really bad and I'm still alive and they won't hurt me!
Hope you find some relief soon!

Debs14User Since: Feb 2015Posts: 2Hi Sally,

Thanks so much for your reply. It really helps to speak to other people who are going through the same thing. My husband tries to be supportive but he just doesn't understand the misery they cause. I am trying to stay as calm as possible to help reduce the frequency of PVC's. I too used to be in bigemy/trigemy prior to my ablation so I know how awful that is. I am holding into the hope that mine too may reduce back to only a couple a day. I have accepted that they are not life threatening but they can certainly ruin your quality of life. I hope that you manage to remain PVC free. Maybe I will try taurine too. Thanks again.

Shady ladyUser Since: Nov 2014Posts: 11Hi Kirsten,
No I've not tried beta blockers, but that is because I have a slow heart rate in the mid 40's sometimes!
I wouldn't want to make it any
I also have GAD too! Not a nice thing to live with but you have to soldier on.
Yes, I do agree that anxiety can make PVC's worse so I try my best to keep it under control!
All the best

Sally. ??
