Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am an 18-year-old female. My height is 5 feet 6 inches. I urinate way too frequently, and it is always a small amount. When I urinate, I get horrible cramps. I also have a slight burning in my vagina. It comes and goes, and it is excruciating. I once had a cyst in my left ovary when I was 16 years old. But I did not experience burning urination and lower abdomen pain at that time. I took Paracetamol for that. Please help.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

An ovarian cyst will not cause such pain. From what you are saying, it looks like you have a urinary infection. Here are the things that I suggest to you.

  1. I suggest you tablet Niftran 100 mg (Nitrofurantoin) twice a day for five days.
  2. Have plenty of fluid around 0.5 to 0.6 gallons of water.
  3. If you get this problem frequently, I suggest you do a urine culture test before starting antibiotics. Then we can start treatment according to the report.
  4. If you are sexually active, please use some barrier method and keep proper hygiene.
  5. You should use a vaginal wash that suits that will help in preventing infection.
  6. Also, tell your partner to keep his private area clean because women can often get infections because of the partner.
  7. If you get any fever, only then can you take Paracetamol 650 mg. Otherwise not needed.
  8. But if you get a fever, please do a complete blood count, urine routine, and culture. If required, later on, I will suggest you do an ultrasound of the abdomen as well but for now, let us wait and see.

Please follow up after five days and let me know how you feel.

Take care.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
