    And remember that you can have steril piuria.

    Also theres a new test in which they use the urine to DX.

    Now lets keep the same topic

    The patient seems to have acute salpingo-oopheritis...since she is having abd pain,fever along with increased discharge....so the medications should be:
    IV cefoxitin or ceftriaxone AND IV doxycycline.
    OR
    IV clindamycin AND gentamicin.
