Signs of an ectopic pregnancy

In the beginning you might have a positive pregnancy test and signs of a normal pregnancy. As the embryo grows you will start to experience other signs and symptoms.

Abdominal or pelvic pain and light vaginal bleeding can be early signs of an ectopic pregnancy. Other signs may be pain or pressure in your bowels or even pain in your shoulders. Call your doctor or go the the emergency room if you think you have an ectopic pregnancy.

Get emergency treatment if you have severe pain or heavy vaginal bleeding.

Prompt treatment for an ectopic pregnancy are key to reducing permanent damage. Ectopic pregnancies can also be live threating so seek prompt medical treatment.
