    Painful urination NOT UTI or STI

    For ~ 8 months now, I have been experiencing painful urination/ vaginal discomfort. It all started shortly after unprotected sex with my boyfriend AND around the same time I did a 5K in high waisted denim. I was tested for gonorrhea, chlamydia, BV, yeast infection, and trichomoniasis and they all came back negative. I've been treated for UTIs (my original diagnosis because I've had them before and they were very similar) 4 times now with varying antibiotics. I've seen 2 urologists, and....

    Scared

    So like I recently took a medicine that causes vaginal itching. I was doing a self exam and I felt bumps near the opening of my vagina?? I’ve usually felt them my whole life but right now they’re itchy??? I am very scared and sad and don’t know what to do! I’ve been tested as I don’t have any STDS. I noticed them being itchy before when I had a yeast infection, but they always stay the same size and never blister or anything? I’ve had multiple pelvic exams and the doctors always tell me I’m fine....

    Ovaries

    I suffer from irregular periods. Well I have been suffering lately from an uncomfortable feeling of urgency to urinate all the time and a burning sensation in my lower right pelvic area. I have had some nausea feeling also. I also have some tenderness in the area of my pelvic as previous mentioned. I am wondering if I may be suffering from a cyst on my ovary or anything abnormal of the reproductive matter. Any clues or similar circumstances?

    I have a UTI and I'm taking swimming lessons. Should I stop them for a while because chlorine water will irritate the UTI?

    Lower abdominal pain and no period for 6 months

    Hi guys. So, I'm a 20 year old female and for the past almost 2 years my menstrual cycle has been extremely irregular. My most recent period was in late November. They used to come every 3 months, but it has just gotten worse. I have also been having lower abdominal pain on my right side for the past 5 months. I went to the ER back in March and they found a cyst on my ovary about 2.5 cm. The pain was unbearable. I went back to the ER on June 5th because the pain was back and there was no cyst....

    UTI?

    Three days ago I thought I had contacted food poisoning and was experiencing abdominal pain and constipation. I decided later that I might have a UTI, so I took some amoxicillin I had left over from the last time I thought I had a UTI. (I didn’t) I was fine for two days until this morning when I went to the bathroom and have had cramps and sharp pains since, even after taking the amoxicillin. I also have an upset stomach which started after taking the amoxicillin. Should I be worried about having....

    Birth control and antibiotics

    I recently was diagnosed with a uti and have been on antibiotics since Tuesday. The antibiotic is called Trimoxazole. My doctor told me that it effects the birth control. I'm currently on the patch. I really don't want kids but I feel bad because I've been terrified to be intimate with my husband. Condoms aren't really an option for us. I've heard that only certain types of antibiotics effect birth control. Am I safe or should I use a back up method?

    UTI ?

    I had a UTI about 2 years ago and before I had gotten it treated it was the most uncomfortable thing I might have ever experienced, not to mention painful. So after that I had always taken precautions to avoid them and never got one after. On Sunday night I slept with my boyfriend, we both fell asleep like immediately and I didn’t use the bathroom after. On Tuesday afternoon my stomach started to feel a little uncomfortable and I kind of panicked, like this feels like a UTI a little bit, I was at....
