Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

My wife is 24 years old and her period was regular of 30 days. Before two months, we had intercourse after seven days of her periods. She had her period after some 15 days. It was normal for the first two days, but after that it was very heavy. She had abdominal cramps for approximately a month. Our local doctor gave some medications with iron tablets. Then, she did not have her periods yet. From the beginning of this month, she is having nausea and vomiting. We are not sure whether she is pregnant. Pregnancy test has not been done. Now, she had an accident and fell down from a terrace of 10 feet height. Her x-ray was normal and no bone injuries. But, she is unable to move because of pain. Does x-ray show pregnancy? Since she is unable to bear child at this stage, please suggest some medicine to terminate the pregnancy.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Without doing a urine pregnancy test it is very difficult for me to tell whether she is pregnant or not. Moreover early pregnancy cannot be detected in x-ray. You will have to do a urine pregnancy test at home first. She need not go anywhere for this test. Just collect early morning urine sample and get home pregnancy test card and do the test with early morning urine sample. If you get two red or pink lines, then the test is positive and it means she is pregnant. If the pregnancy test shows only one line, then the test is negative and she is not pregnant. In that case, there could be another reason for missed period and may require further investigations. Once the pregnancy is proved, then we can go ahead and think of termination. So, please do the test and get back to me with the results.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Please get a scan of the abdomen and pelvis done to know the number of weeks of pregnancy and get back to me with the reports.

Patient's Query

Thank you doctor,

Due to the accident, she could not move for a long distance. So, she is unable to get an ultrasound now.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

I can really understand your situation, but without a scan I cannot suggest any treatment or medication. So, kindly get a scan done and consult a gynecologist for physical examination.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
