Doctor :   ok
User :   i still dont know whats wrong
User :   thats all
Doctor :   its better to go urine test once after 3 days

User :   so wait 3 days and take another test
Doctor :  
and go for basic blood investigations
User :   or is it just easier to go back to the hospital

and go for hospital for the basic blood investigations

so if we get a clue, diagnosis can be done, and

treatment can be started as soon

ye especially early morning

can even go for a transvaginal scan
