Hello,

You can have a urinary tract infection or some sexually transmitted illness. I suggest you investigate with urine routine microscopic examination and culture for primary workup. You Can be prescribed antibiotic course according to culture report.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
