Thank you for your patience.

Symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy are :

- Missed periods

- Positive pregnancy test . The positive line on the test may be faint and not very clear.

- Brownish discharge or slight bleeding

- Pain on one side of the abdomen, more while walking or being active.

All of the signs may not be present, but if you have missed your period and have spotting or pain, please consult your doctor and ask for an ultrasound.

I hope this helps.

Thank you.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
