Another Dilemma

A 27 year old lady presents with vaginal bleeding and pelvic pain for 2 hours, which was of sudden onset. There was no history of abdominal trauma.

She is currently at 22 weeks of amenorrhea of her first pregnancy, which has been uncomplicated so far.

Her medical and drug histories are unremarkable.
