How can I help you?
Proceed with your query
My wife might be expecting
she has just missed her period
she is getting severe pains in her abdomen
every 2 hrs she is getting pains, feeling thirsty and feeling exhausted
we are unsure where to run to a gynec or wait for few more weeks
From what I understand your wife has missed her period and you think she could be pregnant.
If yes, may I know when was her last menstrual period
and when was her due period date?
her cycle is 28 days
Has her cycles been very regular in the past?
yes dot 28 days
also just to let you know that she had miscarried in may 2013
Now as she is late by 2-3 days, it may be a case of delayed period or she may be pregnant.
we are more concerned about her pains
which is available over the counter at the nearest pharmacy.
The crampy abdominal pain may be related to early pregnanc or it could be due to her premenstrual symptom.
Now, the primary objective is to rule out pregnancy.
Therefore get the urine pregnancy test done.
if we do now will she get the results?
either positive or negative
The test can be done now. The results are more than 99% reliable now.
You can take necessary actions accordingly.
in the sense, if the test comes positive
consult the gynecologist immediately.
If it's negative, you can wait for a day or two; provided
the pain is not troubling her.

Do you have any questions?
I am in Bangalore, can you suggest which gynec to visit?
Bangalore has many gynecologist who are experienced and trained. If i were to be you, my first choice would be to visit the nearest multispecialty hospital. I would definitely find an experienced one (Head of department).
The second choice would be to go back to the previous gynecologist who helped her during the miscarriage.
The next option would be to try a new one at clinics.
