Any easy way to tell if you have an ectopic pregnancy before your ultrasound scan?

In brief: Not easily
Most pregnancies within the fallopian tubes cause severe pain and are treated emergently.
Pregnancies in abdominal cavity attached to outside of uterus or other structures are seen with ultrasound or other techniques (ct, mri). These generally require specialty OB care.
