9 years ago I had an ectopic pregnancy lost my right tube but still have both ovaries. I haven't been able to get pregnant since with my husband. But now we are divorced and I have been sexually active with my current boyfriend my period is supposed to start tomorrow Im always on time Ive have some really bad cramping the week before and now this week my breast are very swollen and sore I spotted light pink this afternoon and stopped, since my period is due tomorrow should I just wait and see??? I have also been constipated which is very un normal for me Im scared if I really am pregnant I don't want to lose the baby.

Hi Anon,

I am so glad that you turned to the EmpowHER community to get answers about your situation! Since you have both ovaries and still 1 tube, you can still get pregnant...so the good news is that there is a chance you could be pregnant. 

The light pink spotting could just be irregular bleeding or it could be implantation bleeding. Since your period is due tomorrow, if you took a home pregnancy test today, it would most likely give you an accurate result. If you were pregnant that would explain the sore breasts and cramping.

If I were you, I would go to the drug store and buy a two pack of tests. Take one tonight and one in the morning (you will get the best result when taking one in the am). 

If you are not pregnant, then I would say it is just an irregular period. If you ARE pregnant, call your OB right away and let him or her know and express your concerns about your previous ectopic pregnancy.

Anon, will you take a test tonight and let me know the results?

Did this help?
