Pelvic inflammatory disease N73. 9- These are infections of the reproductive system in females. The infections often occur when the bacteria transmitted sexually spread into the other reproductive parts from the vagina (Safrai et al., 2020). Fever and pelvic pain are the most common symptoms. Vaginal discharge may occur. This was the primary differential diagnosis as the patient explained the symptoms.
Chlamydial infection A74.9 is a sexually transmitted disease that does not always cause symptoms and is very common. Chlamydial is most common in women, although it affects people of all ages. Many people infected with chlamydia do not evolve symptoms, but sexual contact can transmit it to others. Symptoms comprise genital pain and vaginal and penile secretions (McQueen et al., 2020). Antibiotic therapy is recommended for affected patients and their sexual partners. This was excluded because the urine test was negative.
Gonococcal infection A54. 9. A sexually transmitted disease that can lead to infertility if left untreated. Regular screening helps identify cases where the infection is present even in the absence of symptoms (Cyr et al., 2020). Symptoms include painful urination and abnormal secretions from the penis or vagina. This was excluded because the nucleic acid amplification test was negative.
Pelvic Exam: To exam the patient pelvic organs
Complete blood count (CBC) with differential: WBC: Elevated.
Quantitative beta-HCG to rule out pregnancy
Pelvic ultrasonography-An ultrasound scan is a medical examination that involves the use of sound waves of very high frequency to take a live picture of the internal organs. It is also referred to as sonography (Savaris et al., 2020). This test helps assess the likelihood that a patient will have a pelvic inflammatory disease.
Urine test– Urine checking testing is presently mostly used to locate bacterial STIs. Chlamydia and gonorrhea urine checks are broadly available. Trichomoniasis urine checks also are available; however, they may be much less common. Bacterial culture was the gold preferred for diagnosing bacterial STIs, including chlamydia and gonorrhea.
Pharmacotherapy: The patient is prescribed Ceftriaxone 250 mg IM and doxycycline 100 mg PO two times daily for 14 days (Savaris et al., 2020). Consider adding metronidazole 500 mg PO two times daily for 14 days.
It is advisable to do the following to minimize chances of pelvic inflammatory disease; first is by using protection during sexual intercourse. Normalize getting tested for sexually transmitted infections and avoid douches (Savaris et al., 2020). After using the bathroom, the most important thing is to always wipe from front to back to prevent bacteria from entering your vagina. Abstinence is another method of ensuring that the patient takes all of her medications before engaging in sexual activity.
After seven days, the patient is advised to follow with her primary care provider.
Refer patient to a gynecologist if she is atypical, there is evidence of presumptive diagnosis, or hospitalization is required.
