A 25-year-old female with right iliac fossa pain presents to the ED with PV (vaginal) bleeding. She tells you she has fainted 2-3 times – she thinks because of the pain. Her observations are SpO2 95%, Respiratory rate 20, heart rate 105, blood pressure 100/60, temperature 36.8 degrees, alert (GCS 15).
She has no medical problems, and is on cerazette (a progesterone only pill).
You think this is an ectopic pregnancy.
