Hello and welcome to HCM,
I am Dr Nilajkumar a consultant gynecologist and I will be helping you in your queries.

I understand the query.

The symptoms do indicate that either there was a trauma to the bladder or you have a urinary tract infection or stone.

To confirm this you will need investigations like a urine examination, ultrasound and cystoscopy.
Please see your doctor early as if it is a bladder injury, it can be repaired if detected early other wise you may have to wait for 3-4 months for complete healing to occur before it is repaired.

Do not worry as all the conditions mentioned above are treatable.

Hope this was helpful.
Feel free to ask any further queries and I will be happy to help.
Thanks for using HCM.
Have a good day.
