I have seldom mild stomach cramps & I have seldom shoulder pain but no bleeding. Are those symptom of ectopic pregnancy?

I have seldom mild stomach cramps & I have seldom shoulder pain but no bleeding. Are those symptom of ectopic pregnancy?

Probably not: If, by "stomach cramping", you are referring to the upper part of your stomach, then if you are having simultaneous shoulder pain which is NON-positional (does not hurt more in the shoulder when you move your arm), then this implies that something may be irritating your diaphragm. One common cause is pain from gallstones. Ectopic is a possibility, but usually causes CONSTANT LOWER abdominal pain ...Read more

Cramping on & off, no bleeding. Sore nipples, mild headaches & sore throat. Bfn at 10 dpo. Could i still be in for a chance of pregnancy? When to test

Chemical pregnancy: I'm sorry for your loss. Chemical pregnancy is another name for miscarriage, typically described as very early, such that one reports delayed period & nothing else. Check out http://www.early-pregnancy-tests.com/chemical-pregnancy.html. There's no reason why you can't become pregnant again, assuming you engage in unprotected sex, although it's doubtful that you'd get pregnant from sex 2d later ...Read more
