Ok, I know everyone is tired of the "am I pregnant?" questions. I just want to know if an ectopic pregnancy would normally show on a home test. I had sterilization by essure (coiles placed in tubes instead of the normal cutting and burning or whatever). I'm only a couple days late with my period. I've been having some cramping on my right side, and have had just a general feel of being pregnant. I really don't want another baby (though I will always love whatever God blesses me with), so I know it's not just my wishing for another baby. I took a home test a week ago just at the beginning of when they say you can and it was neg because of these feelings I've been having. I was thinking if I didn't start in a couple day, that I would go for another home test. My risk of having an ectopic pregnancy (if I ever did get pregnant which I only have a .01% chance of) is very high, because of the coils, but don't want to waste the money if they wouldn't tell me anyway.
