In brief: Vague, serious.

Ectopic pregnancy is one of the exceptions in medicine in that history and physical examination cannot help in its diagnosis significantly.
This potentially life-threatening early pregnancy complication can only be diagnosed with serial beta HCG and transvaginal ultrasound examinations.
