Patient : I'm about 4 weeks pregnant and have been having very intense abdominal pains off and on for the past 2 weeks sometimes lasting all day or night. I have been in pain since 1 o'clock yesterday and it is getting more unbearable. I live in a small town that only has 1 obgyn office and they can't get me in until the 19th for and ultrasound and then the 30th for the results. Is it ok to wait that long and if so is there anything I can take for the pain that won't cause problems for the baby? I am very scared and unsure what to do. I have had cervical cancer and have ovarian cysts. Could this be the cause of all my pain?
