  • When was the last menstrual period? Was it a normal period?
  • Is there any vaginal bleeding or drainage?
  • Does anything decrease the pain or make the pain worse?
  • Are there any other symptoms, such as fever, fatigue, malaise, nausea, vomiting, change in bowel movements, or trouble urinating?
  • Is the woman sexually active? Does she use protection?
  • What medications, drugs, or herbs does the person take, if any?
