Since the beginning of 2011, I've had about 7 bladder infections. Normally my body responds to antibiotics within an hour but things have been rapidly going down hill. I've been on antibiotics more often than not.
My symptoms are:
Constant feeling of needing to urinate
Getting up at least twice during the night to urinate
Recently I've experienced other additional symptoms:
Sore urethra/vaginal area (no sex)
Sore lower abdomen
My lower abdomen/vaginal area actually feels swollen. My doctors can't find out what's wrong with me.This current episode I'm experiencing has been the worst. I've been on antibiotics for the past 7 days. There's no burning sensation but all the other symptoms are there. What should I do? Other than this issue I'm a healthy 24 yr old female.
Please read this post to see if any of this info fits, if it does get back to me with more specifics of your lifestyle and we can dig deeper. Although elvic organ prolapse is most often caused by vaginal childbirth and menopause, it has many other causes and I speak with women in their early 20s to late 80s dealing with different signs and symptoms. I'm heading out of town for a conference so if you send me more info and I don't reply right away, that is why-I'll be back online for sure by Thursday. Hang in there, if this is not POP related, we can try to figure out which other forum would be most appropriate for you.
