38,yr old lady is a diagnosed case of diabetes mellitus type 1,DCM &diabetes insipidus. She is under management for both and is well controlled. She has complaints of dysuria during her menstrual cycle accompanied with heavy bleeding P/V. I put her on a urine alkaliser and tab nitrofurantoin and ofloxacin post sending urine for R/E & C/S. urine r/e shows few epi cells and micro organisms but urine culture was negative even on repeated samples. What could be the diagnosis and management for her?

advice TVS for pelvic organs to detect endometriosis .

since she is having dysuria only during menstruation should rule out endometriosis

USG also recommend

since you have already started ofloxacine . urine culture will be negative. complete antibiotics course at least for seven days. every thing will be alright. now a days doctor are also in a hurry along with patient. patient do not have patience but doctor should have. it may be viginitis or may be uti.

Rather than using such harsh words better read my words again. " I started antibiotics post sending urine sample for C/S...." It means.... sent the urine sample and then started the antibiotics while awaiting the results.

Thanks sir

Dr Nitrofurantoin acts in acid medium only, then how come have u added alkalizer along with?


USG recommended

negative urine culture,dysuria and menorrhagia during menses point towards endometriosis.p/s can, chic, and TVS for diagnosis. cystoscopy if needed. laproscopy is the gold standard .other causes can be vaginitis.antibiotic coverage as already started should be completed.COCs or progestins can be given.
