I have been having irregular periods since ectopic pregnancy six months ago, can I ovulate while on my menstrual cycle?

Yes: Not because you are bleeding vaginally means you are having a regular menstrual bleed. If you ovulated and then bleed 2 weeks later, you are not going to ovulate while bleeding, no. But, if you bleed randomly, you can certainly ovulate while bleeding. ...Read more

How soon can a sonogram detect ectopic pregnancy ?  I'm 3 days late with positive test. Last period april 1.

Another week or two: You'd be 5 weeks counting from your last period. Pretty early to see the pregnancy in either the tube or the uterus. Have you had previous ectopics? See your provider. A good plan is to get pregnancy hormone blood tests drawn every few days then an ultrasound in a week or so. It's good that you are seeking medical care early. ...Read more

I have had spotting instebad of a period for 4 days from cd 26 to cd 29 . 2nd period since treatment of  ectopic pregnancy in October. Should I worry?

I wouldn't worry: You are still getting back to a normal cycle. Your body experienced the full effect of a pregnancy with all it's complex hormonal changes, so taking this long to return to baseline would be expected. It could easily take 6 months or more to get back to your usual pattern and cycle. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Consult your doctor: If you are having periods and the home pregnancy test is negative it is unlikely that you have an ectopic pregnancy.You may have a cyst on the ovary or an infection, this may cause the pain you describe. See your doctor and he/she will evaluate the pain and most likely order a blood pregnancy test to help rule out a pregnancy. ...Read more

I had an ectopic pregnancy in March. Now I am 3 days late on my period and having pregnancy symptoms but a negative pregnancy test.

And your question?: I suspect you are wondering if you are pregnant. Could be to soon to say. Take another test in a week. Follow the instructions exactly. If you have abdominal pain, fever, get checked quick. Since you might be pregnant, no alcohol, tobacco, rec. drugs, or any other meds not prescribed and take prenatal vitamins till you know for sure. ...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. You don't mention how your ectopic was treated (medically or surgically) which can make a difference. 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
