pelvic intravenous contrast study:

Would that show if I had Endometriosis?

Would that show an ectopic pregnancy?

Can you have an ectopic pregnancy, and have multiple negative pregnancy tests?

  • I'm not sure if they did a blood test for pregnancy. I know they have done 3 urine tests since March, which all came back negative.

  • They need to do a blood test to rule out ectopic - it will be more acurate than urine test. Also, make sure they understand this is a possiblity and don't let them brush it off...this can be very very serious if not detected early - just make sure they absolutely rule it out! I think you need as second and third opinion here.DOM
