Brief Answer:
Bladder infection vs prostatitis

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

It is likely from your description that you have a genitourinary infection. It may be prostatitis, but it could also be a bladder infection.

I strongly advise that you go in to an urgent care clinic, or if you don't have a 24 hour or late night one near you, go in to the ER. There they will get a urine sample for urinalysis and likely a culture. They can also check your prostate.

Getting a urinalysis and if abnormal (which I think it will be), a culture, is important as then you can get treatment for this. If a culture and sensitivity test is done, then they will know which antibiotic is most effective if there is an infection.

So go in now.

Regarding how long it takes for us to respond, it can take up to 24 hours, but usually someone will respond within an hour or two.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can provide further information.

This recent past July on vacation, I started having bladder pains and after a while it gradually got worse. Worse meaning right before my period I would discharge either blood or the regular discharge and also after my period. Through out this entire time (the spotting has finally stopped) but the swelling on my left side has remained. What could be wrong with me?

Hi I am 27 years old. I was having a grayish discharge and burning when I would urinate. Since I don't have insurance and I don't work at the moment I don't have money to go to a doctor. So I bought home remedies for BV infection and pills that are acidophilus. It helps to balance your vaginal PH for yeast and BV. It helped a little I had to use the BV insertion for 6 days and I did. I finished it about 2 days and I have severe itchiness, my vulva minora is 2x swollen, and my left vulva majora is swollen, I have a lot of watery discharge it feels like I'm peeing on myself and it is so uncomfortable to sit, walk, close my legs, everything! I'm so desperate!!!! Please help please help! I have also tried aloe Vera for the itchiness I don't what else to do

I have been experiencing burning when I urinate for the past couple months. I had my urine tested - dip stick three times as well as sent to the lab and I am always being told it is normal..no actions needed. I had anti biotics then thrush then used Canesten Combi and it is back. The burning I mean . I also notice a yellow discharge
