In brief: Ought to!
The gynecologist planning a pregnany termination procedure should have already considered and excluded an ectopic or heterotopic pregnancy! sometimes, the first clue is the pathology from the uterine evacuation revealing no trophoblast - that is essentially a diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy and its site has to be determined asap.
