Pregnancy Test Positive But Your Symptom is Pelvic Pain?

Women don't (as often) miss the fact that they are pregnant. The over the counter pregnancy tests are very accurate and easy to come by. But determining whether the pregnancy is healthy, or even in the uterus, often will require a visit to the physician. And If you have symptoms of pelvic pain, the visit should be arranged promptly. About only 1% of all pregnancies are in the fallopian tube and not in the uterus and called an ectopic pregnancy. If you have had PID before you are more likely to have a tubal pregnancy than the average patient. Women used to get treated by surgery, and maintaining that count on ectopic pregnancies was fairly easy. Now many of these are treated by medication dosages in your doctor's office, and so estimating one's actual risk is hard. Early and prompt treatment of tubal pregnancies is also important to avoid the known complications of a tubal pregnancy such as future infertility avoiding chronic pelvic pain, another ectopic pregnancy and treatment related side effects or complications.
