I’ve never been pregnant but I just had a severely painful ruptured cyst last month and the symptoms I had cued them to check for an ectopic pregnancy. I didn’t have spotting though. The pain was a 10/10 and I had a burning sensation in my pelvis due to the fluid in there. The pain was also constant there was no intermittent breaks. It was truly awful. I would take a pregnancy test but I’m told ectopics dont always register on a HPT and you have to get blood work.

If you are worried about the possibility,  get checked out and have an ultrasound. They are dangerous so don’t wait.

mdcs0128 :  I had a suspected ectopic a few years ago. If you are concerned at all call your doctor. They will most likely do a blood test to check your hcg and possibly an ultrasound depending on the hcg results.  Btw I never got a positive pregnancy test when I had mine but I did for the blood test. My levels were so low it didnt register on a home pregnancy test. My levels were slow rising and not doubling which was their clue something was wrong. I only got a blood test bc I was going through fertility treatment.  If we were trying naturally I probably wouldnt have known until it was too late. I also had bad back pain which was also a clue something was wrong.  Good luck! Your docotr should be able to rule it out!! As others have said they are so dangerous dont wait!! Also I got a period too so that doesnt rule it out unfortunately.
