When do you notice a etopic pregnancy?

It is rather difficult to notice an ectopic pregnancy, however you may suspect in these circumstances: Positive pregnancy test, abdominal pain and discomfort, vaginal bleeding. Previous history of EP, salpingitis, tubal surgery or intrauterine devices for contraception is predisposing factors. Ultimate diagnosis is made by measuring of bHCG to confirm pregnancy and by intravaginal ultrasonography. Ectopic pregnancy can be a life threatening situation and must be diagnosed early or else there is a risk for maternal death.

If you have a tubal pregnancy will it read on a pregnancy test?

Most pregnancy tests test for the presence of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) in the woman's blood or urine. Ectopic pregnancies are usually picked up by home pregnancy tests however it is possible that do to lower levels of hCG that sometimes result from ectopic pregnancies you could get a false negative. Ectopic pregancies can potentially become very dangeros, if you suspect that you may have an ectopic pregnancy even if a home pregnancy test is negative, it would be wise to see a physician.

How does a etopic pregnancy happen?

An ectopic pregnancy occurs when the fertilised egg attaches itself outside the cavity of the uterus (womb). The majority of ectopic pregnancies are found in the Fallopian tubes. In rare cases, the egg attaches itself in one of the ovaries, the cervix (neck of the womb) or another organ within the pelvis. An ectopic pregnancy is not usually capable of surviving and in most instances an embryo is not developed. An ectopic pregnancy will spontaneously miscarry. The majority of women diagnosed will have to be operated on or treated with medication.
