not usually. in fact ectopic pregnancies don't usually become apparent until they are causing you severe pain

Yes. It is still a pregnancy, though not a viable one, and it will still prompt your body to produce hCG, which is the hormone that makes a test positive. Often in ectopics the hormone levels are lower than would be expected in a healthy pregnancy, but it takes very little hormone to turn a test positive.
I got a positive pregnancy test at 14 days past ovulation (4 weeks pregnant) with my ectopic.
Yes. It did with mine, I got a positive HPT and a positive urine test at my doctors at 6 weeks. I didn't find out it was ectopic until a week later.
I was told that with an ectopic pregnancy the hCG hormone levels are the same as a normal (not ectopic) pregnancy for the first few weeks but then slow down or stop at that level while a healthy pregnancy will continue to rise. Thats just what Ive heard.
Either way the anon is defiantly wrong.
