Hello doctor,

I am 18 years old and I have been having sex with my fiance for three years. He is the one who took my virginity but almost every time we have sex there is this pain and discomfort feeling. And after it hurts to pee like a discomfort feeling and it gets easier throughout the day but the process starts over the next day and this lasts a couple of days but I also get shocking pains down there sometimes. I took 2 cranberry pills about an hour and a half ago. Could you help me?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your symptoms point towards UTI or vaginitis. To differentiate, you must undergo urine routine/microscopy, urine culture, and swab culture of vaginal secretion. For symptomatic relief, you need to drink lots of water (additional 3 to 4 litres/day) along with cranberry juice. Also, use a condom during sex and use a good lubricating jelly in abundance. Review with reports to help us prescribe with antibiotic best suited for you.


Investigations to be done:

Urine routine/microscopy, urine culture, HVS.

Differential diagnosis:

Uti, vaginitis.

Treatment plan:

According to the reports.
