Brief Answer:
Discussion follows

Detailed Answer:

Welcome and thanks for your query.
Cold skin is indicative of decreased blood flow to the skin. This may indicate a drop in blood pressure or increase in the vascular tone to divert the blood to more vital areas.
Does she have any abdominal pain? Does she have any other symptoms like fever or loose motions or high colored urine? If there is a chance for pregnancy then it would be better to go to the ER to exclude a tubal pregnancy.

Do get back to me with your input.
