Sexually active, having UTI symptoms. How to get rid from this anxiety?

I m 18. Sexually active for the first time with one guy who was a virgin before me too. I have had reoccurring uti symptoms for a while. I want to tell my gynecologist this but I m deathly afraid of getting examined in my private area. I m so uncomfortable I get anxiety over the fact that one day I need to get an exam. If I tell my doctor everything is it likely they will want to do an exam? I know that once you start having sex you should get an exam but I m way to nervous and I ve heard that being nervous during an exam can make it hurt and lengthen the exam. I m scared but I need to tell the doctor I m active.

Hi Hrc,
Thanks for writing your query.
It will be helpful if you mention the symptoms you are experiencing which made you think that you are having UTI.

Let me assure you that to confirm the diagnosis of UTI, physical examination is not needed.
It can be confirmed by urine examination.

You can give your urine sample for Routine/Microscopic and Culture/Senstivity examination.
Treatment, if needed, can be planned after knowing the reports of the investigation.

You should drink lots of water as this helps in limiting the Urinary Tract Infection.

I hope this is helpful to you.
