Question: Hello Doctor,
I feel pain in the urethral opening and lower abdomen while urinating and after that as well, since three days in the morning time for 3-4 hours. My last month periods date is 04/12/2017, but I didn't experience this anytime during my menstrual time. What could be the reason for this? UTI or Mentrsual time ?
