now i know a urine test ISN'T going to tell you that you are ectopic, it's only there to determine if you are pregnant. however I was wondering if a urine test would pick up the hormones produced by an ectopic pregnancy ultimately letting you know you are in fact pregnant.
I had conflicting info given to me by a clinician at a local pregnancy resource center.
I have missed by period by two weeks, the last sex i had was with a condom that slipped. the sex happened on nov. 9, which at this point is 8 1/2 weeks. i have had no additional sex since.
so being concerned i went to a local clinic and they performed a urine test. came up negative, however the girl told me well you could still be ectopic and that wouldn't show up on a urine test. i said but it's a pregnancy nonetheless, but she was hell bent on telling me there is no way a urine test could pick up the hcg produced by an ectopic.
so, now i'm not sure whether to get a blood test done or not. can any ladies please shed some light? thanks.
