right shoulder pain as a sign of implantation/early pregnancy???

I'm 6 DPO. Anyone ever had this as their first sign of pregnancy? I actually had some shoulder pain after my saline hystosonogram a few months back and read that it is something called referred pain, which means the phrenic nerve in my pelvic region was irritated by the exam and that nerve goes up through your body and ends in your shoulder.

I know that severe shoulder pain is a sign of ectopic, im not worried about that. More wondering if anybody anyone had this sort of symptom around the time of implantation and ended up pregnant?

Hi there
I am a massage therapist and it sounds like frozen shoulder to me I have never heard of it being ectopic related but if I were you go see your dr and then see a massage therapist good luck

Also you are right that nerve does go right up to your shoulder I read your post more in detail I would just have the dr exam that but if you can I would still recommend a massage here and there every once in a while

Actually wantbaby is pretty much correct

Wantbaby, are you sure you are not ovulating now? Some women will bleed from the ovary when they O and that can cause irritation and shoulder tip pain.

I've never heard of it happening with implantation.

Hi:) yes, I did ovulate 6 days ago. I can feel, at least i think i can, when I ovulate and the test was positive a day before.

I'm trying not to monitor myself too much, but this shoulder has had a periodic dull pain all day and I do have very very mild mild cramping. The dull pain in my shoulder is similar to after the sonogram, but milder.

It's just strange, I wonder what's going on down there, lol.

Where is your shoulder pain? I've had a burning sensation by my right shoulder blade. I am also six dpo according to my Pink Pad app. I would love it if you are right and it is an early sign of pregnancy. I'm going to have to look into it now!

Wantbaby74-have you had any other early pregnancy symptoms? I've also had some heartburn lately too. Couldn't find any info on shoulder pain as a sign of early pregnancy. Hoping we both get our bfp next week!
