Pain/missed period: The above are most common signs of ectopic pregnancy, but they are highly nonspecific. If you are concerned about possible ectopic pregnancy, #1 is to take a home pregnancy test. Obviously if you are not pregnant, you cannot have an ectopic. If you are pregnant and in pain, call or see your doctor, who may refer you to an emergency room based on your condition.
