A Brief Foray
A quick sally into a realm I do not dare attempt conquer. A lady arrived in my ED today, status post her second elective abortion, about six weeks ago. She was obviously poor and uneducated. She was having some lower abdominal cramping. She had also experienced some spotting after her bleeding had stopped from the abortion. She was concerned, but didn't want to see her OB, because she felt ashamed of what she had done with her last pregnancy. After a thourough evaluation, the only abnormality I could find was a positive HCG. Ultrasound confirmed a gestational sack, and I took her the news. Your pregnant.
