Dr. Rakhi Dimino answered
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Ectopic: No. You need an ultrasound and blood work. If you have bleeding combined with pain (especially on one side of the pelvis) and you have a positive pregnancy test, you should seek medical help quickly.

Ectopic: No, blood work is very important. Even if a ultrasound is negative and your bloodwork shows a positive beta hcg, a ectopic can not be excluded unless a intrauterine gestation is seen. So serial bloodwork and sonograms may be needed.

Ectopic: Ectopic pregnancies are emergency situations and must be treated when identified. The only was to confirm this is by a combination of presentation (pain, bleeding, etc) laboratory studies (beta HCG levels) and by ultrasound examination to confirm the presence of a gestation in the uterus or outside.
