A.1. Chlamydia2. Gonorrhea3. Bacterial Vaginosis
ExplanationThe tests mentioned above are essential to rule out other STDs. When a patient presents with suspected chlamydia infection, a workup for other STDs should be carried out to avoid further complications such as PID that may lead to infertility (Mohensi & Takov, 2022). A urine pregnancy test should be performed because doxycycline is the first line of treatment for chlamydia but is contraindicated in pregnancy. Also, this test is indicated because the patient confirms the partner has already tested positive, making this the likely diagnosis. Gonorrhea is a differential diagnosis because chlamydia and gonorrhea can coexist in males. It is unclear if this patient engages in anogenital sex or oral sex; if so, screening is required from the anus, urogenital, and pharynx by collecting samples for a NAAT (Springer &Salen, 2022). The patient denies a foul odor but endorses dysuria and vaginal discharge. A wet mount is required to rule out bacterial vaginosis. STDs including chlamydia can accompany BV. The wet support is a diagnostic tool for BV but can also aid in ruling out the presence of yeast or trichomonas (Kairys & Gard, 2022).
