Do you have any bleeding? I too thought I was having a ectopic pregnancy but what I experienced was bleeding on and off, cramping, back pain, headache. I would certainly get looked at. You don't want that to burst.
Good Luck hun! Let me know how you are.
I had an ectopic in 06'. I started taking pregnancy test when I was about 5 days late. I got positives, but they were very faint. As I took them they kept getting darker. I made an appt with my doc to see me early because I had a previous m/c and I had been having some cramping and RT shoulder pain. If they catch an ectopic pregnancy early they can treat the tubal with a methotrexate shot instead of having to remove a tube. If you are worried I would call your doc just to make sure. Good luck!!
thanks both of you. i just found a doctor so i have to call today. and i had no idea that they had to remove the tube!! i just though they take away the fetus. oh well thanks again. :)
Well, they only remove a tube if it gets damaged. If they catch an ectopic early enough your tube/s can be saved. I found out at 6.5 weeks that I had a tubal and I was treated with 2 methotrexate shots and I still have both tubes.
First of all good luck to you and hope to god it's not an ectopic.
I would go to the doctors asap. When I had my ectopic I was bleeding just like a normal period but for about 3 months straight.
I found out I was having an ectopic at about 4 weeks and I got those methotrexate shot they don't work for everybody :( my tube rupsured.
