At what point does an ectopic pregnancy become critical? Is it possible to catch one in time with regular pregnancy tests?
Ectopic pregnancy: an ectopic pregnancy may become critical at any point but the danger of rupture is greatest from 8-12 weeks. A pregnancy test alone is inadequate to diagnose an ectopic pregnancy. If there is pain in the ovary area and a positive pregnancy test an ultrasound is a good diagnostic tool. ...Read more
Had my methotrexate injection 7 weeks ago for an ectopic pregnancy (about 3 weeks along). Still getting pos. home pregnancy tests. What's going on?
Should be tracked: After Methotrexate it is important that your BHCG levels be tracked all the way down to zero. Usually this is done weekly. This is done to make sure that Methotrexate worked to treat the ectopic pregnancy. Also since it has been 7 weeks are you sure that this is not a new pregnancy? It is possible that you are pregnant again. See an Obgyn for a BHCG blood test. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

6 days late and all pregnancy tests have a negative result. I've had an ectopic and only have 1 Fallopian left. How long do I wait b4 calling dr?
If all tests are: negative you can wait for even as long as the next expected period (because there's no ectopic risk.) Or many doctors would be glad to evaluate (blood work, US, etc...) now. If you choose to wait for the next period I strongly recommend checking a home pregnancy test in another week, to make 100% certain an ectopic wasn't missed. Good wishes! ...Read more
