I really need some help ( & opinions ).
I am 5 weeks & 1 day pregnant. I concieved on Saturday 26th September. My LMP was 14th September.
Last night I went to the emergency department at the Royal Womens Hospital in Melbourne as I was having servere pains in my right side just above my groin and also in my lower back on the right side. I was also feeling very sick ( not to the point of vomiting but very very close to it.)
The Dr did a blood test to check my HCG levels and the test results came back as very low ( 300 ). She has told me I need to come back again tomorrow for another blood test to have the HCG levels checked again but she suspects I have an ectopic pregnancy. She told me that my HCG levels should be around 7000 by now.
Does anyone know if it is normal for a Dr to suspect an ectopic pregnancy and send you home. I was under the impression an ectopic pregnancy was serious and needs to be dealt with ASAP.
Has anyone else been in this situation? I am distressed beyond belief and dont know who to talk to or what questions to ask.
Please let me know if you have any advise or a similar experience.
Thanks ..... looking forward to your replies.
