Ectopic Pregnancy

Beth - November 29

I am worried that I might be having an ectopic pregnancy. I was wondering if anyone who has had one might be able to share any early symptoms they had? My husband and I have been trying to conceive. Around ovulation time I started having twinges/mild cramping on one side of the lower abdomen. That has continued for 13 days now past ovulation. I wasn't supposed to start my period until tomorrow or the next day, but I started spotting 2 days ago and it has turned into heavy spotting/light period today. All pregnancy tests are negative, but I'm still having the crampy feelings only in one area. Does this sound like one? Thanks for any help.

Sorry but I have never had one...I know woman that have and it is possible...the cramping usually comes from the side that the pregnancy is in..(tube)...I would ask the doc for an u/s just to be safe...good luck

I would go to the doctor's. I thought I might have had one because of pains. I went to the doctor and had a negative urine preg. test. She said it would have been positive if I had an ectopic preg.(cause I was having symptoms). She took a blood test to see if I was pregnant. If it's not pregnancy, then she is going to do an ultrasound to see if I have a cyst. Good luck to you!!

yes ectopics are painful and you do tend to bleed on and off. urine test somtimes show negative, you need to go to the doctor as soon as possible. they can give you a shot to dissolve the embryo, if you wait too long your tube can burst and that is dangerous.
