Abstract

In speaking of the diagnosis of pregnancy in the earlier months, I desire to state that I refer to the time previous to the appearance of the positive signs, or, in other words, previous to the fourth month. The subject is one of very great importance, both to the patient and to the medical man, for upon his decision will rest, in many cases, the domestic happiness of families, especially when considered with reference to the younger female members. An error in diagnosis can never be remedied, for it matters not whether we pronounce for or against pregnancy and the final outcome of the case be different from our prediction, the error will live long after the case has been forgotten by the physician. It is this possibility of injuring our reputation that makes the subject of so much greater importance and demands that medical men should be conversant with
