  1. Am I in danger of an Ectopic pregnancy?
    I’ve taken three pregnancy tests that have read negative, and I am over a week late. Also my tubes were tied over 9 months ago. I have none of the “usual symptoms” of ectopic pregnancy other then minor cramping. (Think PMS style cramps) If this isn’t an ectopic pregnancy what else could it be? Is there anything else that can cause a period to be delayed?

    And yes, I do have an appointment to see my doctor soon.

    • An ovarian cyst, maybe? An infection…..there are a few things that could cause the cramping. Stress, diet changes, etc. Can make your period late. However, an ectopic pregnancy will show up positive on a pregnancy test. You will have normal HCG levels with it. Hope you get it figured out soon!

  2. What are the symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy?
    I’m 2 weeks late, my tubes are tied and was wondering just maybe…but I don’t know the symptoms. Are they the same as regular pregnancy symptoms? This is the first time I’ve been late since my tubes were tied so I’m concerned. Anyone know?

    • well the other people had good symptoms listed, however i have had an ectopic pregnancy and did not even know it until my fallopian tube burst. I didn’t really have any signs of pregnancy, and yes i still was having my period, as well. I started cramping really bad, and the pain was intolerable so i went to the ER. They gave me a pregnancy test which to my shock was positive, and then an ultrasound, and then to the OR. I’m telling you this, not to scare you, but to make you aware. Ectopics are serious, women have died from not getting proper and prompt treatment. Oh, and just to let you know, it’s not that i was naive or uneducated about symptoms of pregnancy; i am a nurse. So take a home test, if it’s positive and you’re experiencing symptoms, go to the ER.

  3. How do you know if you are pregnant with a tubal pregnancy?
    I had my tubes tied and was told that I could still get pregnant, but that it would be a tubal pregnancy. What I want to know is what the symptoms are? Do you still have a period? Also, do you have to have an abortion with a tubal pregnancy or can the baby grow full term?

    • Tubal pregnancy symptoms are usually a dull ache that turns into severe pain in one side (or more prominent in one side), lower abdomen, neck, shoulders and in your back, just below your shoulder blade. You don’t have a period since the pregnancy hormone hCG is being released into your system, which stops menstruation, however you may have vaginal bleeding. Unfortunately, a tubal pregnancy cannot be brought to term, and it can be fatal to you if you attempt it. The fallopian tube will usually burst on it’s own (generally around 8 weeks but it can go longer).

      In the case of an ectopic pregnancy, they will surgically remove the fallopian tube and the ovary.

  4. What are the chances of getting pregnant again after getting a tubal ligation?
    I had my tubes tied about 6 and a 12 months ago after I had my third baby, now I’m having early pregnancy symptoms. Haven’t missed a period yet, but I knew with my other 3 before I missed a period.

    • While it’s not common, it can happen. If by chance that you are pg, then see an ob/gyn right away. A pregnancy after a tubal ligation can be ectopic, which would be dangerous.

      Good luck.

  6. Is it too soon to start trying after an ectopic pregnancy?
    I had an ectopic pregnancy a couple months ago and had a salpingectomy on June 18th, where they removed my ruptured right fallopian tube. Is it too soon to try to start trying to get pregnant again?

    • I Hope This Helps

      Generally, an ectopic pregnancy will produce a positive pregnancy test. If your hCG levels are lower than expected, however, this can be a symptom of an ectopic pregnancy.

      An ectopic pregnancy is treated surgically. The health care provider removes the fertilized egg from the woman’s body. This can be done laparoscopically, which is much less painful and evasive than traditional surgeries. If an ectopic pregnancy is detected extremely early, it can be treated with an injection which will dissolve the fertilized egg. After treatment for an ectopic pregnancy, your health care provider will likely want to see you again soon to make sure that your hCG levels return to normal.

      Ectopic pregnancy cannot be prevented. Having your tubes tied, having endometriosis, having pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), and having previous ectopic pregnancies or other conditions that have left the fallopian tubes scarred are all factors that increase the risk of having an ectopic pregnancy.

      Having an ectopic pregnancy does not, in general, prevent a woman from later having a successful pregnancy. However, about 30 percent of women who have had an ectopic pregnancy will have at least some difficulty getting pregnant again. The time that you need to wait to try to conceive again will vary. In part, it depends on the type of procedure that was performed to treat your ectopic pregnancy. Your health care provider can give you an indication about how long you should wait before TTC again. Studies suggest that around 65% of women will become pregnant within 18 months after an ectopic pregnancy. The risk of having another ectopic pregnancy is higher the sooner after the first that you try. Generally, you should wait until at least 6 weeks before trying again.

      Good Luck To You
