Hi,

Welcome to XXXXXXX and thanks or your query.

This may indicate a recurrence of UTI.
Tender urethra may be explained by UTI, but not the tender vulva.
Pls get examined, get urine culture done to choose the right antibiotic.
Since infection is recurrent, kindly speak to your doc to take antibiotic on a low dose basis for about three to six months to prevent recurrence.
Tender vulva may be due to inflammation of the female genital organs/ PID.

Regards
DR GS

My husband had a circumcision (he's 42) after phimosis all his life. It's been 8 months, and his glans are still too painful and sensitive to touch. He's says it feels like a toothache. I wonder if perhaps he had a low grade yeast infection under the foreskin for years going unnoticed. I read untreated yeast can grow rhizomes, and become more in the mold category, going under the top layer of skin in a woman's vagina, and having nearly no symptoms, other than vulva pain similar to what my husband is now describing. He has tried all pain meds for it, including ones for nerve pain. Suggestions on what this might be, other possibilities.... would be great.
