Hello doctor,

I went to my doctor in February complaining of burning pee and discomfort. They tested me for a UTI and yeast infection and said there was nothing. Then I went to my gynecologist two months after that still having the symptoms she swabbed me and I had a yeast infection. Sex really hurts and I am scared that it is not just the yeast infection. What if sex hurts?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Please tell me that do you have any discharge through vagina. Sometimes urinary tract infection along with vaginal infection causes this pain. Please do get back to me for the follow up once the urine and blood reports are available. If sex hurts now refrain from sex till the infection is cleared and use the following medication.


The Probable causes:

UTI with fungal infection

Probable diagnosis:

Urinary tract infection and fungal infection

Treatment plan:

Clotrimazole vaginal pessary (100 mg ) insert into the vagina at bed time for 6 consecutive nights.

Preventive measures:

Maintain hygiene, drink plenty of water and oral fluids.
