If you have a positive pregnancy test and are experiencing bleeding then you need prompt evaluation. ...Read more

Can there be a chance if an ectopic pregnancy? Lmp was 5/28, had u/s on 7/16 and only showed an empty g-sac. No bleeding/no cramps. Sac meas at 5.3 wk
Low chance: If a gestation sac was seen in the uterus on your sonogram, then it is likely not an ectopic pregnancy. Ultrasound is never 100% so I suggest a repeat sonogram be done to confirm a heart beat at a later date. However, if no bleeding or cramping with a gestational sac in the uterus, you are likely on the right track. ...Read more

Is it normal to experience light pain in the abdomen at 5 weeks pregnant? There's been no bleeding. I had an ectopic pregnancy 5 years ago.

If the pain is on one side or the other that's concerning; and not just for ectopic. You have several red flags, your age, prior ectopic, the gestational age, that an ultrasound can defuse. ...Read more

Practice safe sex if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine, if you are younger than 27 years. ...Read more

Either: It could be either but it is more likely that this is a light period. If in doubt do a pregnancy test and talk to your doctor.

Having had one ectopic there is a higher risk for another so seeing your doctor early if you might be pregnant is important. ...Read more
