    Sorry about that and I do hope you are better now? I want to know if the pain is around your menses or relatively half way through menses? What side was the ectopic? To my knowledge nothing stops you getting pregnant so long the other tube is still patent. Although with reduced probability but it can still happen. My opinion is to have an ultrasound scan done at the height of the next pain and let your gynaecologist review. It might just be ovulations pain or something more urgent but a scan should show its cause.

    At times menstrual cramps can be perceived as radiating to the leg if severe, like I said earlier this might just be an ovulation pain which could be very severe in some people. If you are having the pain now I will advice getting a pelvic scan asap if not wait till the pain comes get the scan done and have it reviewed by your doc. That's the best plan to go with but I will advice you to calm down and don't get worried, your complaints are not unusual in some women.

    That complaint is not a known sign of pregnancy, although sometimes menses could be a week late so my advice is to wait a week and do a blood pregnancy test. If negative then you are not.

    I'd this the first day of your menses? Has this happened before? Any history of contraceptive use? have ever had a painful menstruation before? Do you have peptic ulcer ulcer before? if yes to a hx of peptic ulcer you can just use paracetamol 1g three times daily if no then diclofenac 50 mg will be fine.
