does an ectopic pregnancy show up on a hpt? adult content

Will a home pregnancy test pick up an ectopic pregnancy?
ive been told no, but if you've had an ectopic preg id like to know ur personal experience.

right now, i dont think i have an ectopic pregnancy, well i have no clue, but im just curious.

I have the paragard iud, ive missed my period and have been very sick (nausea's/dizzyness/cramping/tmi lots of discharge) for almost 2 weeks. i took a rite aid hpt today and it was negative...but i accidentally peed on it for longer than 5 secs ( like 20secs, and it says not to do that, opps!)

  • I think it would show up because your egg has still been fertilized. If you're worried about it, I would make an appointment with your OB asap and schedule an ultrasound.

  • I don't know if it does but I got pregnant on Paraguard IUD and found out when I was 7 weeks along and so far have had a completely normal, healthy pregnancy. I'm 32 weeks along. Good luck!
