Are there any signs or symptoms of a tubal pregnancy?

Yes : Most commonly, ectopics are diagnosed by ultrasound findings or lab abnormalities. The complaints of bleeding/spotting with pain/cramping are usually what brings women in for evaluation. Unfortunately, these symptoms are common in normal pregnancy. We use HCG levels and ultrasound to figure out if things are progressing as they should. Rarely, thanks to early care, a woman will have severe pain. ...Read more

I had a tubal ligation 6 years ago. I had sex on new years eve. I've had light spotting for 3 days but no cycle. Could this be a sign of pregnancy?

Unlikely: Spotting not a normal sign of pregnancy. Being late for your normal cycle is. Can get pregnant after tubal. Chances vary somewhat depending on how your tubal was done. If concerned regarding pregnancy, check home preg test on first morning urine at least 2 wks after last sex. If neg, repeat in 7-10d. If both neg, unlikely you are pregnant. Hope this helps. Best of luck. Dr R ...Read more

Possibly: If you've had a tubal ligation, then the chances of a tubal pregnancy are fairly high. The slow rate of rise of the hormone levels indicates that this may not be be a healthy pregnancy. Yes, you should push for an ultrasound for a diagnosis to establish a treatment plan. If your doctor is not willing to order one you may need to get another opinion, particular if you are having significant pain. ...Read more

I have tubal clamps. I have had them for 2 years but I've been having regular sex and I'm now 5 days late and have symptoms of early pregnancy ?

I have tubal clamps. I have had them for 2 years but I've been having regular sex and I'm now 5 days late and have symptoms of early pregnancy ?

Unlikely but possibl: Hi, though tubal clamping has one of the most effective sterilization/contraceptive techniques it still has a 0.06-0.07% failure rate, ie 6-7 out of 10,000 women became pregnant in the 10 years after the procedure. Therefore, I'd recommend you check a home pregnancy test. However, even if it's negative but you start having any pain in lower abdomen seek med help immediately to rule out ectopic. ...Read more
