Hi--how long has all this been going on? When was her last episode of unprotected sex?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Going on since last Wednesday, July 10. Last episode of unprotected sex was 2 weeks ago. She took a home pregnancy test yesterday and it showed negative but recognizing could be too soon.

Well, hard to give you an exact answer here but she needs to see a doctor about this. My first thought in pelvic inflammatory disease--infection in the ovaries and Fallopian tubes. She may also be running a fever that's causing the thirst, but untreated diabetes could also cause that. The one very concerning thing here is a possible ectopic pregnacy and resulting anemia from bleeding so in essence she needs to be checked out right away.
