Brief Answer:
An ultrasound is advised

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
If there is any uterine or abdominal Pregnancy, then it is quite obvious in the ultrasound.
If you are having the symptoms of pregnancy, then you should get a ultrasound done to confirm the diagnosis. Further treatment should be done accordingly.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
