I am a 30 yr old woman who had an ectopic pregnancy 6/7 years ago. It required me having laparoscopic surgery to remove the fetus from my fallopian tube. My boyfriend and for the last few months have been hoping to become pregnant and have stopped using birth control. I had morning sickness last week so he thought i might be pregnant but the test said no. Then, starting 2 days ago i started having extremely excessive urination (about 10 times a day). So i took another test, again no. A few hours ago, i began bleeding. With my previous history of the ectopic pregnancy and bleeding for 5 weeks straight before seeing a doctor and getting that news, i am worried. I don't have the debilitating abdominal pain like before and the tests say no. My questions are, could the tests be giving a false negative? Should i be seeing a doctor, considering my history (I've heard that after an ectopic pregnancy, the chance of the next one also being ectopic are 1 in 3)? Any advice would be great...View Thread
