Tastes Like Chicken
A 37 year old women came in with abdominal pain and fever. Whenever a female comes in with this complaint we have to do a "female exam" to make sure there isn't a vaginal problem that could be causing this. Sure enough, her cervix was tender and she had a discharge. After sending some labs....it came back as Trich. I informed the patient of her diagnosis and her need of antibiotics. She asked is there anyway to "make her better without getting rid of the discharge?" Puzzled....I told her no and asked her why. She replied "Because my husband really likes the way it tastes and has been spending a lot of time down there."
I almost threw up.
