Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you suspect chances of ectopic pregnancy, do not delay in visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for further evaluation and treatment (as it can occur to any woman, and may not always be associated with symptoms). It can have life threatening complications and can go worse at any time. It can be determined with thorough examination and ultrasound scan. Look out for symptoms like severe abdominal cramps, lower abdominal discomfort/pain, bleeding, increase in temperature, painful urination, painful bowel movement etc. Although it can be subtle with no symptoms and mimic normal pregnancy, PID, other gastrointestinal conditions. Careful examination and early detection is important. Do not delay in visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for further evaluation and assistance.
Take care.
