An ectopic pregnancy cannot really be picked up by a home pregnancy test. Your pregnancy test may be positive. Yet it is important to note that this is not always true. Sometimes, specialised hCG blood tests are necessary in order to confirm this. It has to be suspected if a woman shows the following symptoms as well: one-sided pain in the woman's stomach; Lower back, pelvic or abdominal pain; shoulder pain; collapse; bladder or bowel problems; abnormal bleeding; and a missed or late period. It needs to be diagnosed by your doctor at the earliest.

It is likely that your doctor will first perform a physical exam. Typically a sonogram, laparoscopy or laparotomy, urine and blood tests may be needed.

I had one tub removed. Home pregnancy test was positive. Had hcg blood test done and the levels were high enough to put me at 25 to 38 wks. Had a cycle in August, the first one since December 2006.
I.m not growing at all.

An ectopic pregnancy puts out hormones just as a uterine pregnancy, although maybe not as much. It is still possible for a home pregnancy test to pick it up. But if you are experiencing any of the symptoms described by "hearsch", you should be seen immediately by a doctor.
