Customer: Rite me and Sammi have been trying for a baby a little over a year her periods you could set your watch on, for 2 weeks she has had brown is discharge swollen boobs cramps cramps similar to period pain but not the same.
Dr. Phil, MD :

Dr. Phil, MD :

and pregnancy tests are negative

Dr. Phil, MD :

so there are two possibilities

Dr. Phil, MD :

1)its too early for a pregnancy test to read positive

Dr. Phil, MD :

2)its something else

Customer: Emotional look so tired all the time eating kitkat peanut butter she does even like peanut butte swollen tummy I know it could be anything but to me it points in the rite direction she has has a very faint amount of bright pink blood and a small clot that she never gets it normal just flows best way I could describe lol oh yeah hot and cold sweets with palpatations
Dr. Phil, MD :

Ok

Dr. Phil, MD :

The concerning thing to me is that she could have an infection

Dr. Phil, MD :

brownish discharge, hot and cold sweats, etc

Dr. Phil, MD :

I think she needs to get an exam right away

Dr. Phil, MD :

preferably by her GP if possible

Dr. Phil, MD :

or a GYNO

Customer: You obviously don't know our doctors lol it's taken five days to get a blood test and will take a week to get the results.
Customer: what could cause an infection.
Dr. Phil, MD :

anything can cause infection

Dr. Phil, MD :

it could simply be a bacterial infection called vaginitis

Customer: So this is your help for us
Dr. Phil, MD :

I don't understand

Customer: That's you appraisal for the sum of £48?
Dr. Phil, MD :

Customer: Thank god for that my sincere apologies
Dr. Phil, MD :

no problems

Dr. Phil, MD :

Dr. Phil, MD :

How else can I help?

Customer: Well what do you suggest for me to say or you to ask
Dr. Phil, MD :

Well what other options do you have to see a doctor for a pelvic exam?

Customer: so you are leaning to infection?
Dr. Phil, MD :

yes I am

Dr. Phil, MD :

absolutely

Dr. Phil, MD :

this brownish discharge is concerning

Dr. Phil, MD :

Is there any chance of a sexually transmitted disease

Customer: as that will take at least a week to see a specialist
Dr. Phil, MD :

forgive my asking but I have to

Dr. Phil, MD :

can you go to A and E?

Customer: Yes we could but she a brave soul and resists lol
Dr. Phil, MD :

She has to go!

Dr. Phil, MD :

that is the only option!

Customer: my sister said she had brown discharge with my niece the whole time
Dr. Phil, MD :

yes but that is later in pregnancy

Dr. Phil, MD :

and the test would be positive

Dr. Phil, MD :

brown discharge very early is unusual

Customer: so did Samantha's friend but she had ectopic pregnancy.
Customer: It is 9
Dr. Phil, MD :

she would have pain with that

Dr. Phil, MD :

9 what?

Customer: This is true it's 00:33 here do you still suggest to take her now
Dr. Phil, MD :

yes I do

Dr. Phil, MD :

she has signs of potentially a serious infection

Dr. Phil, MD :

like PID

Dr. Phil, MD :

It is really the only option

Customer: her blood pressure was all perfect and the doctor didn't seem to bother a few days ago
Dr. Phil, MD :

young people can handle infections well

Dr. Phil, MD :

until they get bad

Customer: What's pid
Dr. Phil, MD :

pelvic inflammatory disese

Dr. Phil, MD :

disease

Dr. Phil, MD :

type of infection

Customer: I'm guessing that can spread like wild fire! Are you 100% sure she needs to go tonight! As she is very grumpy already lol but if your sure I will take the roasting although I wish I had known as I have just had my stay of tablets 1 being zolpidem
Dr. Phil, MD :
