Question
It's never happened before, but I have sex 1-3 times a day, and finally yesterday I noticed a little swelling and pain on my perineum. The frequency of sex has increased 10fold from what it used to be. What to do? I also bike a Lot (I'm a personal trainer). That area burns when I pee, so I'm guessing too much sex?

Brief Answer: Perineum-UTI Detailed Answer: Hello, Delighted to be able to help. Result of increasing the frequency of sex activity, you have swelling in perineum and symptoms of UTI. Quiet,are common symptoms in young women. Diclofenac 50 mg thrice a day + Cefuroxime 500 mg twice a day can be taken can be taken for treating your condition.

Just in case to clarify-it doesnt burn when i pee, its just that swollen part that burns when the urine touches it. I have interstitial cystitis too-dont know if that matters. I put some medicated vagisil on the swollen part and feels much better. Could it be a microtear too?
