Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
If you have had sex with a Stranger it could be STD but since you have had sex during your Periods, the chances of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease is higher even if you have had sex with a known Person. Your Symptoms also suggest Urinary Tract Infection.
You may want to get yourself examined by a Gynecologist to rule out the exact cause and if possible get a Urine culture done so that the causative organism could be found out and antibiotics Prescribed against it. Drink Plenty of water.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.

My partner has pain when wiping her upper vagina after urinating and she says she is urinating more. No sores, discharge, itching or burning during urination. The symptom has been ongoing for about a week. Sometimes she also experiences pain when sitting in certain positions when pressure is on vagina in the same area. I was recently tested for STD s and all tests were negative. Do you have any idea what she may be experiencing?

Hello Doctor, I do not have insurance but am con concerned that i may have a bigger problem than it seems. I have so symptoms such as having a yeast infection but no discharge that i have noticed. Kind burning and a little itching but not much itching. Kinda feels like someone scratched my vagina. As I wipe after using the restroom there is sometimes a drop of blood on the tissue but never on my under clothes. It doesn t burn when i use the restroom either. Is there anything i can use over the counter? Thanks

My daughter is a crohn's sufferer, diagnosed 12 months ago. She is on immunosuppressants and suffers repeat bladder infections. The crohn's itself is under control (we think) but today she is in pain again with an urgent need to pass water and there has been blood in her urine which has been absent with previous infections. She has mentioned her illness to doctors when getting treatment for "water infections" and they have been fairly dismissive of a link to crohns. The problem is we do not know what to expect if a flare-up occurs. Could this latest symptom (blood in her urine) be a symptom of flare-up or should we stop being concerned and assume it is another water/bladder infection? I would like her to go to A&E and get it checked but don't want to touble doctors unnecessarily.

Hi!. I'm having some difficulties in the procedure called Irrigating cystoclysis...I found the answers but I can't reason out why..

-to restore or maintain the patency of the bladder
•     to prevent formation of calcific deposits in and around the indwelling catheter
•     to relieve bladder spasm
•     to drain the bladder when acute urinary retention is present
•     to irrigate bladder with a medication to treat an infection or local bladder irritation

why is it cystoclysis is indicated for post genito-urinary surgery, urinary tract infection and also in prostatic hematuria?..
