The fertilized egg has to travel from the pelvis through the fallopian tubes. It then has to land on and implant on the wall of the uterus. And then it has to grow to a big enough size to have enough cells to be leaking the HCG hormone. ...Read more

An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more
