(abdominal pain, headache, bloating, etc.) Is your bleeding irregular in amount or duration?Do you have bleeding between your menstrual cycles?Are your breasts tender?Are you sexually active?Is it possible that you are pregnant?Do you have any pelvic pain?How severe (1-10 scale) is your pelvic pain?Have you had pelvic inflammatory disease?Do you have pain with intercourse?Have you had sex that was painful or rough, or been forced to have sex?Are you having, or have you had unprotected sex?Have you had any sexually transmitted disease?Describe the clinical findings that may be present in a patient with this issue.Being that this patient?s vaginal bleeding is due to a spontaneous abortion, some of the clinical findings may include vaginal bleeding, abdominal pain, and passage of tissue (Alves, 2020).Are there any diagnostic studies that should be ordered on this patient? Why?Along with beta-hCG measurement and ultrasound, a HGB and HCT should be obtained to rule out acute blood loss anemia. ÿSince spontaneous abortion can be precipitated by infection, wet mount examination and screening for gonorrhea and chlamydia should be considered (Alves, 2020).List the primary diagnosis and three differential diagnoses for this patient. Explain your reasoning for each.Differential DiagnosisEctopic ÿÿÿÿÿpregnancy- A ÿÿÿÿÿpregnancy in which the fertilized egg implants outside the uterus. ÿSymptoms include ÿÿÿÿÿpelvic pain and vaginal bleeding.Molar ÿÿÿÿÿpregnancy- A noncancerous tumor that develops in the ÿÿÿÿÿuterus as a result of a nonviable pregnancy. The pregnancy may seem ÿÿÿÿÿnormal at first, but when symptoms develop they include dark brown to ÿÿÿÿÿbright red vaginal bleeding during the first trimester, along with severe ÿÿÿÿÿnausea and vomiting (Al-Talib, 2016).Viable ÿÿÿÿÿpregnancy with implantation bleeding- When the fertilized egg attaches to ÿÿÿÿÿthe uterine wall, it may cause bleeding that can last 2-3 daysPrimary DiagnosisSpontaneous ÿÿÿÿÿAbortion- Spontaneous ÿÿÿÿÿabortion is the loss of pregnancy naturally before 20 weeks of gestation ÿÿÿÿÿ(Alves, 2020).Discuss your management plan for this patient, including pharmacologic therapies, tests, patient education, referrals, and follow-ups.The conventionally accepted regimen for medical management consists of misoprostol 800mcg vaginally, with a repeated dose if needed anytime from 3hrs to 7 days after the first dose. ÿPremedication with mifepristone 200mg PO 24hrs before the first dose of misoprostol may result in a higher success rate. ÿSurgical management consists of D&C as needed (Alves, 2020). ÿFollow up as directed my healthcare professional.ReferenceAl-Talib, A. (2016). ÿClinical presentation and treatment outcome of molar pregnancy: Ten years experience at a tertiary care hospital in Dammam, Saudi Arabia. ÿJournal of Family & Community Medicine 23(3), p. 161-165. ÿdoi: 10.4103/2230-8229.189129Alves, C.
