yes they do. no matter where the pregnancy is, the body still makes the hormones.

Re: do tubal pregnancies show up on pregnancy tests

There is always a hormone called HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) that shows up in any pregnancy. Beta HCG is a very specific "marker" for pregnancy. This blood test is very sensitive and accurate in diagnosing pregnancy, even an ectopic (tubal) one. A positive HCG level confirms that you are definitely pregnant, but does not provide information about the site of your pregnancy... could be in your tube. A vaginal ultrasound can be used to determine the location of your pregnancy.

Re: do tubal pregnancies show up on pregnancy tests

Although it may show up on a home pregnancy also may not. I was 3 weeks pregnant and i had 3 home preg. tests come back negative but when i went to the doctor and they gave me a blood test it was positive. It was because of my ectopic preg. and the slowed growth rate of the baby.
