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.

Hi, I am going to schedual a doctors appointment, but I am just freaking out because I think I could possibly have herpes.. I have only had 4 sex partners.. I m 25, female.. I assumed it was a yeast infection or uti.. but now i m not sure.. It started the day after I shaved down their with a new razor.. so i assumed it was a razor burn/ possible cut.. the next couple days it was very itchy.. but that is common after i shave while hair is growing back.. it also would burn when I d wipe.. it was right by the opening of the vagina.. both sides.. after about 4 days it seems like it was getting better.. each day a little better until it really didn t hurt much at all aout 6 or 7 days later, excep on one side.. finally i got a mirror and looked and i saw a cut.. which i dunno if it was from shaving or what.. by this time i decided it was probably a yeast infection since i was having discharge.. but it was a runny white discharge. I m not exactly sure but after looking online on yeast infecting sites one person said it may be herpes so i researched it.. it was the furthest thing from my mind.. but it turns out.. I m scared it could be.. is their a chance it isn t herpes and its just from shaving or yeast infection.. the other thing.. that is confusing is my urine; unless i drink tons of fluids, is stong in ordor and a little foggy.. which led to me think uti..

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

For the past two years, I ve been getting what I thought were urinary tract infections. While being treated for that, my symptoms would be better, but not gone all the way. The symptoms I m referring to is the following: When I have to urinate, my left side hurts by the top half of my ribs. The pain goes into my chest. When my side hurts, that s how I know I have to urinate. Sometime the urination has a bad smell. I don t feel the tinkling in my stomach anymore when I need to urinate, only an uncomfortable feeling in my side, and chest. My doctor passed away in August, and I now have no insurance. Please help!

Laura has recently been on broad spectrum antibiotics for a recurrent urinary bladder infection. While slicing meat, she cut herself and had difficulty stopping the bleeding. How may have the prolonged use of antibiotics played a role in her bleeding ?
