Answer

Begin antibiotic therapy as soon as possible. Consider compliance, cost, and potential adverse effects. Consider treatment for possible gonorrhea coinfection. Send specimens from sites of infection to the lab for culture. Perform a pregnancy test; this can alter antibiotic treatment and patient follow-up care.
