Dul pain and pregnancy
1 Replies
Kotena - July 11

I am on my 18 day post ovulation. My HCG was 1368 on 17 DPO. Yetsrday I started feeling dull painin the area of ovulated ovary. It is too early to see anything on U/S, my ObGyn "saw" a dot in uterus on 17dpo, but was not 100% positive. She suggested to come in a week (it will be 25 day post ovulation). My question is if it is ectopic, would that rupture by then? I am really scared to leave it like this, but also do not want to go for u/s too early and scare myself by not seeing a fetus in uterus. How lmany days after ovulation ectopic pregnancy takes before it ruptures?

It is too early to see anything on ultrasound. You cannot even see a gestational sac until at least 3 weeks after ovulation. At this time, hCG levels which double every 48 hours would be very reassuring. If the level does not double in 48 hours, you may not have a good pregnancy.
Good luck.
