You would have extremely bad lower abdominal cramps. The ones you can't walk with. If you are pregnant now and are concerned tell your doctor. Your tubes can burst and get an infection following it.

Further to this- 5 women in the UK die every year from missed ectopic. Also, you will most like have prune- juice like bleeding- dark and syrupy. Treatment is either a shot or surgery which may lead to the loss of the affected tube.

How far do you have to be to know your having a ectopic pregnancy?

When women have an ectopic pregnancy, they may not know that they are pregnant at the time. Usually, signs of an ectopic pregnancy would include pelvic or abdominal pain, vaginal spotting or if the fallopian tube ruptures, there may be signs of shock.


How do you know if im having an ectopic pregnancy?

Only an ultrasound will tell you for sure.


Can you have an ectopic pregnancy without your tubes ever being cut or tied?

Yes it is possible to have an etopic pregnancy without having your tubes cut or tied it is just that the egg gets fertilized in the tube without being in your uterus. It is very painful and scary....it is a simple procedure to have removed but very hard to determine when you dont know if you are pregnant or not


How soon do you know you are pregnant in your tubes?

Pretty soon; an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy is very painful, and you would need to go to the doctor as soon as possible; an ectopic pregnancy can cause damage or even death.


What is a tube pregnancy?

a tubal pregnancy, also know as an ectopic is where the fertilized egg implants itself in the fallopian tube instead of in the uterus.


How do you get rid of an ectopic pregnancy?

Well there are usually a small handful of possibilities that comes to treating an ectopic pregnancy. One, the ectopic pregnancy dies and the mothers body reabsorbs the egg and at times is never even detected and the woman might have never even known she was pregnant. If you encountered a positive pregnancy test then a later did another one and it came back negative, that could have been a possibility that it was an ectopic pregnancy. Or the other possibility with an ectopic pregnancy is that the tube that is holding the ectopic pregnancy may rupture causing severe abdominal pain and may cause extreme complications and surgery may be needed. If the ectopic pregnancy is detected by a physician, then he/she may prescribe a drug called methotrexate, which is injected into a muscles and ends the pregnancy. If the embryo is small enough doctors can remove the embryo through laparoscopic surgery and can usually save the tube. In this situation, a general anesthetic will be used and you will need to take about a week to recover. * http://www.multikulti.org.uk/en/health/ectopic-pregnancy/ * http://www.babycenter.com/0_ectopic-pregnancy_229.bc?articleId=229&page=4 * http://www.medinfo2004.org/get-to-know-about-ectopic-pregnancy-174/ You will most likely have to undergo minor surgery to remove the ectopic pregnancy or you can be prescribed medication that will end the pregnancy.


What is the possibility of having a miscarriage after a tubal ligation?

yes. Clinical presentation of ectopic pregnancy occurs at a mean of 6 to 7.2 weeks after the last normal menstrual period, with a range of 5 to 8 weeks. Later presentations are more common in communities deprived of modern diagnostic ability. It is possible to know the differentiate between a possible http://wiki.answers.com/diseases/facts/miscarriage.htm, a continuing pregnancy inside the womb and an ectopic pregnancy. An ectopic pregnancy is an abnormal pregnancy that occurs outside the womb (uterus). The baby cannot survive.


Can you test negative for a pregnancy test if it's an ectopic pregnancy?

You can test negative with an HPT with any pregnancy. I know of women you were two months pregnant before they got a positive test result. If you think you may have an ectopic pregnancy go see your doctor immediately because if the tube ruptures you are in big trouble.


Does your pregnancy symptom immediately stop after having a miscarriage?

No, but, it would be called an "Ectopic pregnancy". It is usually diagnosed within the first 2 months of pregnancy, possibly before you know you are pregnant. The symptoms may be mild or they may be severe and dangerous. They can be the same as the symptoms of early pregnancy or other less serious conditions. Possible symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy are: 1. missed period or abnormal bleeding 2. pain in the lower abdomen or pelvis 3. symptoms of pregnancy such as breast tenderness or morning sickness.

Had an etopic in 2004 then had a bady in 2005 cud you have an etopic again?

Unfortunately there are no guarantees against you having or not having another ectopic pregnancy, partially because the reasons for ectopic pregnancy are really unknown at the time. It can be difficult physically and emotionally after the loss of a child when trying to conceive again. I would recommend that you let a few people that are close to you in your life know that you want to try again and make sure you have their support. It is always good to know that you have a few people that you can have help you through these times. Just make sure that you are ready to try again emotionally, as well as your partner and then you will just need to asses whether or not you are ready to try again because there are chances that it could happen again, especially if you had to have surgery to remove your last one. If your fallopian tubes were not obstructed in any way from your last ectopic pregnancy, you have about a 60% chance of having a successful pregnancy in the future.


When will you know you have ectopic pregnancy?

I had an ectopic pregnancy. There are many symptoms, like intense cramping (lasting for hours) and red spotting. Many doctors may diagnose this as an oncoming miscarriage (mine did), but if it is indeed ectopic...this could be potentially life-threatening if left alone. Insist on getting an ultrasound to confirm the location of the fetus. That is the only way to confirm.


How long will it take to know if your pregnant and if its a tubal pregnacey?

The best time to take a pregnancy test is a few days after your missed period because you will have an increased level of HCG which will give you a more accurate test. A tubal pregnancy or ectopic pregnancy may or may not show up on a test. However, most women know if its an ectopic pregnancy because the symptoms can be pretty severe. Hope this answers the question. Thanks, JM


How o tell if you ectopic tubal pregnancy?

Symptoms of ectopic: It can be hard to tell if you are experiencing an ectopic pregnancy because so many women don't even know they're pregnant at the time they would notice any symptoms of an ectopic. Some symptoms of tubal pregnancy such as a missed menstrual period and vaginal bleeding or spotting two weeks later are similar to the early signs of pregnancy. About 1 in 2 women who are experiencing a tubal pregnancy notice abdominal pain on one side or the other. 1 in 3 women feel light-headed and about 1 in 5 have shoulder pain on the same side as the stomach pain.


How can you know if you have an ectopic pregnancy without going to the doctors?

You can`t. The doctor needs to give you a blood test to test for HCG in your system. Then if there is no fetal sac on an ultrasound (about 6 weeks pregnant or 2 weeks after your missed period), but your HCG is high it is an ectopic. They will either give you several shots (injections) or you will need surgery (most likely you will loose a tube). Ectopic pregnancy is very serious and often leads to emergency surgery or even the death of the mother (5 women a year in the UK) if not not discovered soon enough.


How does someone know if they are pregnant without a test?

Some women have pregnancy symptoms in which they suspect that they are pregnant. Other women have a strong maternal instinct and just "feel" pregnant. But it is hard to really know without having an accurate pregnancy test (either at home or at a doctors office).


How will i know am having twins in my pregnancy?

Through an ultrasound.


How can you know if you are pregnant in your tubes what are some symptoms?

Tubal pregnancy or ectopic pregnancy is usually first suspected when there is cramping on one side or the other. It is usually confirmed with an ultrasound or blood tests or both.

After having an ectopic pregnancy during the last month a pregnancy test came just came back positive could this have been because of high hormone levels or is it pregnancy?

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.

Can you have a normal pregnancy in the womb and an ectopic pregnancy at the same time?

This kind of pregnancy is called a heterotopic pregnancy and they are very very very rare. I found out I was pregnant in March 2008 and they didn't find out I had a heterotpic pregnancy until May when I had my right tube removed after it burst. Like I said though it is VERY rare so it's not something a normally healthy woman needs to worry about. If you want to know the risk factors just google them. I found everything I needed to answer my questions once I knew what the pregnancy was called. Good luck! I just had an emergency c-section as I had a uterine and ectopic pregnancy. I was having severe shoulder pain and what I thought were braxton hicks contraction for months. I made it to 30 weeks unaware that I had an ectopic pregnancy. I had ultrasounds, blood work and all the work ups but the Dr. never saw the ectopic pregnancy. I had my fallopian tube rupture and nearly died from the blood loss. My uternie pregnancy survived at 30 weeks but the path report showed an 8-10 week ectopic pregnancy in the ruptured fallopian tube. My dr. went back and looked at the orignal ultrasound and didnt find an ectopic pregnancy at that time. So I got pregnant several months after already being pregnant. The Dr's had never seen this and said it is extremly rare and that most ruptured fallopian tubes kill the mother. Had it happened weeks earlier both myself and my little boy would have died. So, the answer is yes this can happen as I am living proof.


How would you know if you were having misscarriages with an IUD?

You would be able to know you were having a miscarriage because your pregnancy test would be positive and you'd be having bleeding. Pregnancy with an IUD is unlikely, so miscarriage with an IUD is also unlikely.


Are the pains from an ectopic pregnancy sudden or do they take time?

I had an eptopic pregnancy last year! I did not know that I was pregnant because the results came back negative. I started what I thought was my period and it lasted about 7 days and then the pains started in. That is when I found out it was an eptopic pregnancy from an ultrasound.
