  • Generally even if your pregnancy is ectopic, a test would be positive. I think actually that HcG levels rise more quickly with ectopic pregnancies. You would be in EXTREME pain. If you are in an unbearable amount of pain, go to the ER. All hospitals are required to offer treatment regardless of ability pay - let them know you need financial aid and they will give you paperwork.

    As for the other questions - yes, IF it is an ectopic pregnancy, there is no way for the baby to survive. Many people do go on to have normal healthy pregnancies after having an ectopic, although it does give you a higher risk factor and may cause some trouble with conception.

    I think the more likely answer is that you had spotting from ovulation. It happens sometimes. If you had a particularly large or stubborn eggie bursting out, it can cause pain and light bleeding, and you're in the right timeframe for it.

  • I had an ectopic pregnancy in 07 when I took a pregnancy test it was very faint. I have heard some women get negatives on the at home test when they have an ectopic while a blood test was positive. It does sound like it could be an ectopic I would get checked out because you can hemmorrage if your tube burst. Thank God mine didn't I got two injections to end the pregnancy and had two children after that.

  • If your insurance is canceled you should go to the ER they have to help you without insurance and they can bill you later!

  • I had an ectopic pregnancy in 2004. I had very few symptoms, took a test and got a positive. A couple of weeks later I started having the worst pain I had ever felt in my life. I couldn't even move and it felt like I had to have a bowel movement all the time. I was also passing parts of the fetus. I had to have an emergency surgery and what they found was a lot of internal bleeding behind my uterus but the tube hadn't yet ruptured. They saved it. Anyhow, even if you don't have medical, you can still go to the doctor and tell them that insurance is pending. Insurance will go back and pay it. If you are having very bad pain, go to the ER. Could be one of many things. GL.

  • NO if your last period was on the 10 then you are in the middle of your cycle when ovulation is likely to occur, hence the cramping. Wait until you are late and test again.
