Again, an ectopic pregnancy is unlikely to result in a growing abdomen.

If you were suffering from an ectopic pregnancy, you would likely be seeing excessive vaginal bleeding and experiencing severe pain. That constitutes a medical emergency and you should go straight to the ER if that happens.

If your abdomen is growing in size, then you need to see a doctor sooner than two weeks, because the conditions that you need to rule out _might_ be serious. You may have a clean bill of health from STDs, but there is a lot else that could be going on. Best to get the serious stuff either ruled out or promptly treated.

Good luck.

I was recently checked for STD's including HIV and I have a clean bill of health. I have another appointment in two weeks. I am afraid of the possibility of an ectopic pregnancy.

If it were pregnancy, it would be unlikely that your abdomen would have reached the point where it was visibly growing larger when your period is only three weeks late.

You need to go to your doctor as soon as possible to rule out other conditions.
