Only your doctor can tell you for sure.

AnswerI was afraid I was having a tubal pregnancy so I looked online. I found out that if you're bleeding a lot and cramping a lot on one side of your stomach that could mean you either have an eptopic pregnancy or are miscarrying. The only way to tell for sure is to go to your doctor for an ultrasound.

If you are bleeding and you're still in the first few weeks, my doctor said that's normal it's just implantation blood or something. But better to be safe than sorry.

AnswerA tubal pregnancy is excruciatingly painful and (usually) one sided. May be thought to be appendicitis if on the right. Not always any bleeding visible as you may bleed back into the abdomen.

It is potentially fatal so if you think you may have one go to the Emergency department, it might save your life.
