In most cases the pregnancy test will be positive. In the case of an ectopic pregnancy, you would have symptoms such as pain, or it will be detected on ultrasound.

If you suspect you are having an ectopic pregnancy, you should insist on having an ultrasound BEFORE your tube bursts, as the condition could cost you your life in addition to your fertility.
