I read somewhere that after a miscarriage or abortion, the hcg remains in your blood for 6-8 weeks, so I'd wait before taking another one, or have your doc do a blood test.

I had a ectopic pregnancy at the end of Febuary. The doctor should had let you know if your hcg were going downn or still high. I was told to wait at least one period before I try to get pregnant again. If you did wait at least one period you might be pregnant. To be sure I would go get a blood test.

It is correct that it may take 6 weeks for HCG to fall back after an ectopic, but you cannot tell if you are pregnant from one level, you need a second check to see if levels are falling.

Alternatively, As you had an ectopic pregnancy, it is of course possible that you had an intrauterine pregnancy as well.

Will a pregnancy test read positive if it is an ectopic pregnancy?

Yes. The oocyte or egg, when fertilized will produce a specific hormone that determines the fertilization or pregnancy. hGc I believe is the hormone that is released from the corpus luteum (fertilized egg). If that hormone appears positive on a blood or urine test, you are pregnant. Even if it is an unfortunate ectopic pregnancy. The pregnancy will more than likely not go full term and cause the mother extreme pain.

Does ectopic pregnancy effect the results of a pregnancy test?


Can you have a negative pregnancy test and have an ectopic pregnancy?

Due to the possibility of lower levels of hormone with ectopic pregnancy it is possible to have a home test show that you are not pregnant while you have an EP.

You do not get your periods nor is your pregnancy test positive since 6 weeks from date Is it tubular pregnancy?

I had an ectopic (tubular) pregnancy, and my home pregnancy test was positive by 5 weeks. I would go to your obgyn and get a blood test. They can check hormone levels to see if you are pregnant, how far along you may be, and if they feel it may be ectopic. Good Luck!

After you've had an ectopic pregnancy is it possible to have a normal pregnancy if you get pregnant again?

Yes it is possible to have an ectopic pregnancy and have a negative pregnancy test, it is also possible to have a healthy pregnancy and have a positive pregnancy test in the first 10 days after a missed period. Pregnancy test kits are each calibrated to different levels of sensitivity and you have to ensure you are using a quality test, which is calibrated to detect reliably levels of hCG (the hormone, made in pregnancy.) You can find answers to your questions about ectopic pregnancy by using the link below.

Why would 1 pregnancy test say positive and 1 say negative?

Because the one that says positive is more sensitive and can detect the pregnancy hormone sooner.

Can a pregnancy tesk be negative with a ectopic pregnancy?

an ectopic pregnancy has the same symptoms and signs as a regular pregnancy and you still develop the hormones you would with a normal pregnancy. The human chorionic gonadotropin levels are what cause the pregnancy test to read positive. All pregnancies have hcg levels that should be doubling every other day in early gestation.. an ectopic pregnancy may test negative if taken too early, or too late because the body will eventually,(around 6-11 weeks) begin to try to expel the pregnancy when hormone levels begin to drop when the fetus is no longer viable and must be removed Hope it helps!

If its a tubal pregnancy will it show positive on a home pregnancy test?

yes, because you would still be pregnant and still have the hormone which is what the home pregnancy test is testing for.

Will an ectopic pregnancy show up on a regular pregnancy test?

Yes. My sister-in-law had an ectopic pregnancy. Pregnancy tests measure the level of HPC (human chorionic gonadotropin) in your system, which is a hormone produced early in pregnancy by the placenta (the sac surrounding the baby). Regardless of the type of pregnancy, a pregnancy test will tell you the correct answer.

One positive one negative result no period and pregnancy symptoms are you pregnant?

As I was once told, "a positive is a positive"The body produced a hormone called HCG only when pregnant.HCG is the hormone that is produced by the placenta during pregnancy. This hormone is what a pregnancy test detects. It stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. During a normal pregnancy, the HCG levels will steadily rise throughout pregnancy.

Will a pregnancy test come out positive if you are a few months along in a pregnancy?

A pregnancy test will come out positive all through your pregnancy because it is testing for HCG a hormone that is produced when you are pregnant all 9 months and a little after you give birth too.

When can you find out if you have an ectopic pregnancy?

Depends on where the pregnancy is located, but generally if your serum beta HCG (pregnancy hormone blood test) is above 1200, you can see the pregnancy if its in the uterus, on ultrasound. This is usually after at least 6 weeks of pregnancy.
