Ectopic pregnancy ?: HCG levels are not reliable with ectopic pregnancies, secondary to poor circulatory vessels outside the uterus proper. A sonogram may not show a tubal pregnancy or an abdominal pregnancy outside the uterus. Get another HCG test to be certain that the pregnancy has either increased in size or has aborted spontaneously. Increased pain should be investigated promptly.
