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

Hi Doctor, My 14 month old daughter is diagnosed with Urinary tract infection.The infection has reached to a critical stage by the time we came to know about it WBC 100, RBC =5-7 with bacteria E.Coli.Then she was admitted and was given IV for three days. After 3 days she was put on an oral anitbiotic Orfloxin Since the infection was under control i.e. WBC = 20-25 but she didnt respond well to that anti. and within a week the WBC again went to around 50. She was then given Amicacyn injections for seven days. With these injections WBC count has come to normal but showd an increasing trend i.e. from 3-5 to 5-7 in last day of injection. So she has been put on Amoxylin. We consulted on more doctor and he prescribed Taxim for her. So I just want to know which to follow and is this an indication towards VUR or just that infection is chronic and hence taking a long time to vanish? Please help

Hi! My son has problems pooping, he is very constipated. We have given him enimas, laxatives,prun juice, anything fibre and nothings working. He gets really bad abdominal pain and an upset stomach and the dr s here don t seem to be doing anything can you give an idea on what to do? \I have a daughter that has urinary tract infections all the time. She has had fevers for the last week,and she has lower abdominal pain and back pain. She has also been complaining of headaches and her shoulder joints and her knees are sore. She looks sick in the eyes, her eye lids are a little red and swollen. Her eyes were red as well and I think there is something wrong with her but I get the same run around from the dr s. Our family dr said she had pinworms which she did not. What should I do with her and what would you recommend is wrong with her and what should I do?
