Hello and thanks for the query,

I would recommend a urinalysis initially. This will help determine if there is any infection going on. A typical bladder infection cused by bacteria is notuncommon in females. If there are risk factors for STD, a screening test should be done. Otherwise if the urinalysis shows infectioon, an antibiotic will lead to rapid improvement of symptoms.

If the urinalysis is clear then a referral to a urologist would be reasonable for consultation, examination and further recommendatons.

Thanks again for the query,

Let me knof if I can be of any additional assistance.
