Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
please enter chat
hi I'm Dr. Phil
Can I ask your first name?
Okay I'm here James
How can I help?
and pregnancy tests are negative
so there are two possibilities
1)its too early for a pregnancy test to read positive
2)its something else
The concerning thing to me is that she could have an infection
brownish discharge, hot and cold sweats, etc
I think she needs to get an exam right away
preferably by her GP if possible
or a GYNO
anything can cause infection
it could simply be a bacterial infection called vaginitis
I don't understand
no its not
that is the first communication
lets continue until you are satisfied
How else can I help?
Well what other options do you have to see a doctor for a pelvic exam?
yes I am
this brownish discharge is concerning
Is there any chance of a sexually transmitted disease
forgive my asking but I have to
can you go to A and E?
She has to go!
that is the only option!
yes but that is later in pregnancy
and the test would be positive
brown discharge very early is unusual
she would have pain with that
yes I do
she has signs of potentially a serious infection
It is really the only option
young people can handle infections well
until they get bad
pelvic inflammatory disese
type of infection
Yes, I am sure
She needs this checked
She is likely going to end up with some heavy duty antibiotics
just tell them the story
exactly what you told me
then let them do their thing
any more questions james?
