its a pregnancy that is in your tubes. Results in a miscarriage and you have to immediately get to your dr. It's dangerous

I had one with my first pregnancy.  It came close to rupturing and I was taken into emergency surgery and lost part of my right tube.  

If they catch it early enough you can sometimes avoid surgery.

Quoting philipmommy4834:

I had no bleeding but the pain in my right side was so bad the day of surgery that i couldn't stand straight.  Prior to that I just had intense AF like cramps.

I was 6 1/2 weeks.

It's a pregnancy which is anywhere but your uterus. Usually in your Fallopian tubes. If you have one, you will have extreme local pain to where the pregnancy is located. You may also spot. If it's caught earlier enough the DR. can give you a shot that will dissolve the pregnancy. If not, they will have to surgically remove it - which often time involves the removal of a fallopian tube.

 I had one in 2004.  I had horrible pains in my side.  I would feel light headed and throw up then be fine.  I didn't realize what it was until I felt real bad at work so I went to the ER and found out what was going on.  It was a exploratory surgery till they found out my tube rupurtered.  It must have happened in the ER because the tech couldn't see it was ruptured in the U/.S.   I ended up loosing my baby and my right tube that morning.

You would have a Positive PG test.

Is the pain on your right side? Check for Appendicitis.

I had one....I didn't have any pain just a lot of bleeding. It was caught before my tube ruptured.

Make an appt. with your Doctor!
