I am scared that I may be having an ectopic pregnany: Advice?

So I’m freaking out that I have an ectopic pregnancy. I always start my period between 14-16 of each month. I’m not on any birth control; we are trying (not tracking, just letting nature take its course). I’m now a week late, but my tests have been negative. I haven’t felt much different, no signs of the upcoming period, though, per usual. Normally I’ll know about 2-3 days in advance when I’m going to start because I’ll cramp, have headaches, back pain, tired, moody, etc. The only things I’ve felt are tiredness & tender breasts, which is normal before or during my period, but since I haven’t started, I’m questioning things. I’ve done the research, and it says that ectopic pregnancy could be the cause (having symptoms but negative results). Should I call my doctor? I think I will if I don’t start by the end of this week. I haven’t had any kind of abdominal pain or any pain at all, really those are the main symptoms of EP.

You could go in and get checked. I also had false pregnancy tests in my earlier weeks of pregnancy so that could also be the case. Just too early to pick up those HCG levels. Still wouldn’t hurt to go get checked though. :woman_shrugging:t3:

Doesnt sound like ectopic (base on experience even though everybody’s symptoms wont be the same) but its always best to check with your doctor just to be in the safe side

I had an ectopic pregnancy you get a lot of lower abdominal pain on one side and you get bleeding with a positive pregnancy test I was lucky in the fact my tube didn’t rupture but I did have to have surgery to remove my right tube so my advice is to go to the doctor and get a blood test to find out if you are pregnant. It might be that your getting false negatives or could be very faint lines you aren’t seeing but like I said best thing you can do is go to the doctor and get checked out ASAP

:roll_eyes::roll_eyes: so instead of picking up a phone and calling a doctor you Google your symptoms and now you think your world is ending, good job!

First, turn off Google, its not a damn doctor
Second. Pick up a phone, dial your doctors number and make an appointment.
Third. Social media isn’t a doctor either so asking us is just as bad as using GOOGLE.

Well ::If that ain’t something to post on the computer ::::: Go to your doctor ASAP :::DUH ???

If you are your hgb levels prob aren’t high enough to show up on a urine test yet. Don’t jump to worst just yet.

EP is a very serious situation. I almost died from it.

That being said, it’s also not overly common. Call your dr and ask to be examined.

I am kinda in the same situation here. I have never had this happen to me. So, I have know idea what to do. I took a pregnancy test today and it came up negative as well. I think I am going to wait a few more days as well and take another test, then if negative results happen again I’ll call the doctor.

Why not go to the dr.

I had pain and spotting with my Ectopic pregnancy. An ectopic really won’t show symptoms until about 6-8 weeks. I was still getting positive tests. I would just go to the doctor and get blood drawn.

Normally takes 2 to 3 wks to show up on a pee test

I would go the doctor now. Ectopic pregnancy is very serious.

Pee tests have different sensitivities. From experience those cheap dollar store ones or the ones that you have to use a dropper for are the most sensitive and provide the most bang for your buck (so to speak). Try those before the expensive name brand ones especially if testing often. Keep testing and definitely make a doctors appointment. You could be feeling the effects of something like an ovarian cyst or hormone imbalance as well.

when I was pregnant I didn’t know I took a lot of test even the dollar store one’s an they said I was negative I took one everyday first mornings urine I ended up with a bad nose bleed had to go to the er an that’s when I found out I was pregnant ( mine you I have irregular periods so I didn’t know also I was drinking about 25 energy drinks a day cause I was a cashier an working over time I know all bad ) when I found out I was already 6 1/2 months an they took my blood to find out I just wanted to share , maybe just go to the dr a check it out❤

I had an ectopic pregnancy 3 months ago and was rushed for emergency surgery at 8 weeks. i had a positive test on the day of my missed period, then started spotting at 5 weeks followed by sharp pains through to 8 weeks. My HCG levels kept rising every 48 hours (but at a slower rate than it should have) I’d go see your doctor just to be sure.

I had one and I test positive for it. Only reason I found out cause I thought I was having my period was it was longer than a week and at 2 wks I was I LOTS of pain. Went to the hospital and they said I was pg and it wasn’t my period I was bleeding out. I went into emergency surgery and they stated I lost 3 pints of blood and my tube almost ruptured. They said I was lucky.

Definitely go see your doctor, but it might be a normal pregnancy. With my second I couldn’t get a positive test result until I was already 13 weeks along. She was then born normal, happy and healthy.

All my tests except blood test said I wasnt pregnant with my daughter. I’d get checked. Good luck sweetie, try and not worry.

You will testpositive with an ectopic. You could be kate because you’re stressing about it. Or maybe you are pregnant but not far enough for a positive to show up. I’d wait a week and test again
