Hello doctor,

I am on holiday and had sex two days ago when the condom broke in between. I took the Morning-after pill (just for a day), but since today morning, I have a feeling to urinate all the time, even though I do not, and I have extreme pain while urinating. I am sure I either have a UTI (urinary tract infection) or STI (sexually transmitted infection). I am worried about the latter. Please help me with my condition.

Thank you.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your symptoms point to a urinary tract infection. I suggest you take plenty of oral fluids, tablet Nitrofurantoin 100 mg twice a day for five days, syrup Citralka (Disodium hydrogen citrate 1.53 gm/5 ml) two teaspoons in half glass water twice daily for three days, and tablet Flavoxate 200 mg twice daily for three days.

If symptoms worsen or do not subside and there is foul-smelling vaginal discharge, get yourself screened for STDs (sexually transmitted diseases).

Take care.

Thank you.
