Is there always pain when an ectopic pregnancy ruptures?

Posted by oscar

i have been diagnosed and am being treated for an ectopic pregnancy.  I am concerned I will miss the signs if the tube ruptures.  My question is, is there always sharp, intense pain when that happens?  Can it happen and I not feel any pain?

It is my understanding that once an etopic pregnancy is discovered they immediately do what they can to remove the pregnancy, so it makes me curious as to what procedures they are using to "treat etopic pregnancy"?


And yes, there is usually pain associated with any kind of rupture

Thank you for your answer.  I was having a paranoid momment.  I am being treated with methotrexate.  I recieved two shots, one in each "hip" This is used to disolve the pregnancy.  My beta numbers are dropping, so it seems to be working like it should.
