cystitis? urethritis? something else?
Hello, i am a young woman and for the past three days have had symptoms of a urinary tract infection, i.e. pain on urinating,blood in urine,  frequent urination. I was prescribed antibiotics (trimethoprim) for three days, and it calmed down and went away. On the fourth day it flared right back up again, however it is different. I have no pain when urinating, but a constant burning sensation in my urethra which makes it uncomfortable to walk or sit down or do anything. I have also experienced a bit of discharge from my urethra, a pale yellow colour. I was worried it might be an STD, but my boyfriend and I ALWAYS use a condom for everything and I have no vaginal symptoms (bleeding, discharge, pain) whatsoever, but should i still worry about having one? I am going back to my doctor to get the antibiotics again, but i was just wondering if i have nothing to worry about and just take the antibiotics, or there is something wrong and i've now got something different.

Hello becca29,


Most likely you might be having some vaginal infection. Thrush and bacterial vaginosis are two very common causes of an abnormal vaginal discharge. They are not sexually transmitted infections, although their effects may be worse after sexual intercourse. Continue with the antibiotic course. It would take some more time for the infection to be cured completely. Reconsider the change of more effective antibiotic like ofloxacin if symptom still persists after one week.
