  • * Abdominal or pelvic pain, usually 6 to 8 weeks after a missed period.4 Pain may get worse with movement or straining. It may occur sharply on one side at first and then spread throughout the pelvic region.
    * Vaginal bleeding that may be light or heavy.
    * Pain with intercourse or during a pelvic exam.
    * Dizziness, lightheadedness, or fainting (syncope) caused by internal bleeding.
    * Signs of shock.
    * Shoulder pain caused by bleeding into the abdomen under the diaphragm. The bleeding irritates the diaphragm and is experienced as shoulder pain.
