Rule out pregnancy: 44yo, sterilized whose last menses lasted for 3days with complaint of nausea.
In view of about 1 percent failure rate in patients who underwent sterlization, the prudent thing to do are as follows:
1. Get a quantitative hcg and if positive,
2. Get a transvaginal ultrasound to confirm any pregancy, location and rule out ectopic pregnancy.
Good luck with your doctor.
