Answer

Complete blood count (CBC) with differential - May help to differentiate pelvic infection from endometriosis, as well as to assess the degree of blood loss

Urinalysis and urine culture - If urinary tract infection (UTI) is in the differential diagnosis

Cervical Gram stain and cultures - Because sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) can also cause pelvic pain and infertility
