Is this another ectopic pregnancy?

I had an ectopic pregnancy earlier this year following a reversal of sterilisation. I'm pregnant again, about 5 weeks, and keep getting the odd sharp twinge. Could this be another ectopic pregnancy??

Vicki

Dear Vicki,

It certainly could. You are at extremely high risk for another ectopic pregnancy because of your history of tubal reversal, and the fact that you have had a previous ectopic pregnancy. You should call your doctor as soon as possible. He or she will want to check your HCG levels and an ultrasound to be sure that this is not another ectopic pregnancy.

Sincerely,
Amy
