"Bleeding suspected Ectopic pregnancy"

About: Pilgrim Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

Was sent to a&e by my doctors for a ectopic pregnancy as I was in loads of pain and was bleeding for the past 2 days and it was quite a lot, also passed something while bleeding too.

At a&e I had blood test and gave a wee sample witch was hard not to contaminate with the bleeding I was having. I was left in a room for 2 hours before I got to see a doctor, just to be told I wasn't pregnant and that my wee sample showed signs of infection, um pretty sure that was hard to tell as it was contained with blood but ok.

I wasn't even looked over by the doctor. He just said I could go home it been 2 days now I'm still in pain
