I recently had to have emergency surgery for a ruptured ectopic pregnancy. I was in and out of the ER (3x before it ruptured, i was in the ER 1 day before it ruptured) with all the symptoms for an ectopic pregnancy and every time they performed the ultrasound they never checked further in my fallopian tubes. It turned out that I had a severe loss of blood and ended up having to have emergency surgery and unfortunately lost my right tube. The ER kept telling me (i have all the diagnoses papers) that I was still pregnant with twins, and probably was miscarrying and the other one was still developing ( my hcg levels had risen very much).
