I am 6 months out from an Ectopic pregnancy. When I found out I was pregnant, I knew something was wrong and had a feeling I was pregnant to begin with. I was cleared to continue trying, but I have a feeling I might be pregnant already.

I am very regular and usually start between the 7 - 11 of each month. On Monday morning, very early, I went to wipe and noticed a light, blood colored liquid and told my self it was my period. It was a light - medium flow for about 6 hours and then nothing. The next morning I noticed a brown color, that I have seen before with the Ectopic. I told myself it could be stress, working out, or just irregular for this month.

I am worried, of course, and took a pregnancy test this morning. It was negative, not surprising. Here are the other symptoms I am having- lightheaded, tender nipples, HOT HOT HOT all the time and frequent urinating. Should I wait for a week to take another test, see the doctor or wait it out?

Thank you for any responses!

Have you had a pregnancy risk recently?

I would wait another week to 10 days and take another test. If that also comes up negative and you're worried about it (symptoms stick around), or the test comes up positive, you should see your doctor. If the other test is negative and your symptoms disappear, i would try not to worry about it too much.
