Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thank you for asking HCM

I have gone through your query. Woman can get painful urination, increase in frequency , smelly urination and vagina. The smell can be a fishy odour. This bacteria can cause stone formation in urinary tract and kidneys if left untreated. In such case you can get abdominal pain.
A culture and sensitivity test will e helpful to identify the bacteria and to find the sensitive antibiotics. Urine and vaginal swabs can be given for culture. If you taking Rocephin then after finishing the course a culture and sensitivity test should be done to see whether you are clear from infection.

Let me know if anything not clear.
I am happy to help you.
Thanks.
