Welcome to this forum.
You should follow your doctor's advice. Without being sure about it, he will not advice you. Not all ectopics have symptoms initially and when it becomes symptomatic, that is a grave emergency. So, if you want, go for a second consultation but don't be casual.

Hope I can address your query. Please visit your doctor if there is any further confusion as without a clinical examination it is not possible to opine through an online medical forum.
