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.

Yes, ectopic pregnancy is a rare effect of having a tubal ligation. If you've had a tubal ligation and begin experiencing single sided pain, spotting, bleeding or dizziness you need to be evaluated for tubal pregnancy immediately.

Yes, a tubal pregnancy does show positive as the implanted embryo is producing the HCG. If you have a positive test then start having acute pain on one side or the other (with or without bleeding) go straight to the emergency department and tell them what has happened. A tubal pregnancy can be extremely dangerous.

Signs of pregnancy after tubal ligation are a positive pregnancy test. If your test is negative, you're not pregnant.

It is possible to tell in a pregnancy test but Im not 100 percent sure. I would see your doctor instead for a pregnancy blood test.

A tubal pregnancy is usually apparent by six weeks.

Practicaly the chances of pregnancy after tubal ligation are zero.

User Avatar

Yes, a tubal pregnancy will still produce HCG and will still be detected by a pregnancy test.

A tubal ectopic pregnancy is usually discovered sometime between the sixth or seventh week of pregnancy, but can be noticed as early as four weeks into a pregnancy. If there a no symptoms of a tubal pregnancy, it may go unnoticed until a first trimester ultrasound.

Pregnancy or euctopic pregnancy.

A tubal pregnancy can be a life threatening condition with the potential of rupture. A tubal pregnancy can permanently damage the fallopian tube and cause difficulties with future pregnancies.

Most definitely, yes, you can have a false pregnancy test with tubal pregnancy. Hormones only know an egg implanted. Hormones do not know where the egg implanted.

I believe it is ectopic pregnancy.

Tubal pregnancy can not cause heart attack.

What if the pregnancy hasn't been diagnosed as a tubal pregnancy, but hcg start out low n double or sky rocket out of nowhere.

User Avatar

unfortunately no, a tubal (ectopic) pregnancy is a fetus growing OUTSIDE the womb, and the baby CANNOT be put INSIDE the womb.

User Avatar

The fetus can not grow there and has to be removed.

Ectopic pregnancy aka tubal pregnancy.

User Avatar

A tubal pregnancy is a pregnancy in which the fertilized egg implants itself somewhere besides the uterine lining and the fetus cannot survive.

Yes it is. I just had a tubal/ectopic pregnancy on 6/20/2012 and thats what my doctor kept calling it

Menopause is cessation of menstruation as you grow old or due to hysterectomy. A tubal pregnancy is an ectopic pregnancy where in the inplantation takes place in the fallopian tube.

The failure rate for tubal ligation is about 1.85% after 10 years. Slightly higher if the operation was performed during a c-section. If one does get pregnant after a tubal ligatin an ectopic pregnancy (or tubal pregnancy) may develop.

Absolutely! If your tube was damaged during the tubal pregnancy you may experience some trouble conceiving, however carrying a pregnancy to term after an ectopic pregnancy should not be a problem. Not every tubal pregnancy will irreconcilably damage a fallopian tube. If one of your fallopian tube has been severed due to a tubal pregnancy then you still have another one to rely on. If you have had two irreconcilably damaged fallopian tubes then you are going to need surgical help in getting a viable egg to your womb.
