I am 40 years old....no history of abnormal menstural cycles and have had a tubal 9 years ago....about 3 weeks ago, I started my monthly cycle. About 4 days into it, I had severe "break thru" bleeding. I passed two large pieces of tissue. I had severe cramping and severe bleeding for the next 4 days. I had a pregnancy test run on me (urine and blood) both came back negative. They did an ultrasound (I can't remember the term) but it was internal. That was normal. The bleeding had reduced to spotting for the next couple of days, then quit all together. Three days later, I started bleeding again. Each day the bleeding and cramping gets more severe. I am now weak and dizzy, and I am having seepage from my breasts. I felt from the beginning that it was an ectopic pregnancy, but the docs are telling me its not. At no time have they checked my tubes. I asked if they could see my tubes from the ultrasound and was told no. Could this have been an ectopic pregnancy?
