I have only just become sexually active, and a couple of days ago i started getting severe pain (making my eyes reallyy water!) during the end of urinating and wanting to go like twice every hour. I have blood in my urine, but i'm not sure if its period or something else. Should I go to the docters, but is there anything else i can do to stop this at home? It would be to embarassing going with my mum, because as far as i'm aware this can only be caused my sex, help!
HI, this sounds like a classic case of a bladder infection. It's common for sexually active women to start getting bladder infections. 50% of women will get a UTI in their life time and 25% will get recurrent infections. A bad infection can cause bleeding, pain and frequency. You need to see your doctor, either primary care or gynecologist who can handle this problem easily by doing a urine culture to identify the bacteria and which antibiotic is best for treatment. If you had blood, frequency and urgency and it was not an infection, you need to see a Urologist to evaluate you for other problems like a stone or tumor. Step 1 is to get the correct diagnosis. Good Luck
