Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

You must have caught an Urinary Tract infection or a Genital infection.I advise you to visit your Gynecologist and get examined for the evaluation of same.A course of antibiotics or antifungal application along with excessing hydration can treat the infection efficiently.Meanwhile , please keep taking plenty of water.That will help in quick elimination of infection.

Take care.

Hi. Well just over a week ago i had my period. And i noticed that it smelt a little more than usual, doesn t normally really smell at all.. Anyway, since i ve finished my period, my vagina has had a different smell to it. It is not very pleasant and it never used to smell... What could be the cause of this? I have been drinking more alcohol than usual if that means anything but other than that my diet hasn t really changed. Could it be something to do with my new sexual partner? Could his penis make me smell this way?

Last month it hurt when I peed, it wasn't a burning feeling, it just hurt when the pee would come out, it came to the point where I was scared to use the washroom because it hurt a lot even to wipe, then I had saw I had gotten a yeast infection, so I took care of and everything stopped, now yesterday I went to pee and I can feel it starting to hurt again, I was told this could be a urinary tract infection but I'm not sure what to do

I was diagnosed with HSV-1 in my genital area and since I was diagnosed I have had issues with constipation. Also, the lips of my vagina are pretty red as well and my groin area seems to be red as well. Doctor thought it may be a yeast infection. I have tried stool softeners and ansoul suppositories because of the constipation and hemmrhoids. I also tried nystatin for on the lips of my vagina too.
I'm still having some discomfort around the anus area and havent had a regular bowel movement for some time.

Im also taking daily treatment for the HSV-1. 400 mg of Acyclovir 1 time a day.
Someone, please help me feel back to "normal"
