I would for someone to review my ultrasound imaging, to see if you see an ectopic pregnancy. (Ectopic confirmed 2 days post US)?

I would for someone to review my ultrasound imaging, to see if you see an ectopic pregnancy. (Ectopic confirmed 2 days post US)?

Request Review: Ultrasounds are a dynamic test, not just a static test. The technician learns a lot about what's going on with the various movements of the ultrasound probe. Many of the readings may be passed on to the physician radiologist for the final reading. It may be worth having another doctor read the films/pictures, but more than likely, you should consider a different site for a repeat ultrasound. ...Read more

Hello.: Hello. I am sorry to hear about your situation. If your doctor did an serum HCG and the level was far to too low for a fetus of this age, that would be suggestive that the ovum did not live. I think it would bother me if a physician did not confirm the ultrasound finding. I recommend that you talk to your physician and explain your concerns. ...Read more

How can I tell the difference between pregnancy cramps and menstrual cramps? My ob confirmed pregnancy on feb.7th at 5 wks 4 days. I had cramps on jan17

Naming cramps...: Pregnancy cramps happen only when pregnant. Otherwise, they are not called pregnancy cramps. Menstrual cramps cannot happen when pregnant, because pregnant women do not have menstrual cycles (they do not menstruate while pregnant). If cramps are during pregnancy, one can call them pregnancy cramps whether they feel like menstrual cramps or like pregnancy cramps (they likely feel similarly). ...Read more
