UTI or STD?

Hi, I recently have had vaginal sex (unprotected) I have been to have an STI test and am currently waiting on he results. However when I urinate it's slightly painful mild i'd say and only slight burning, there are no other symptoms like odour, discharge etc just needing to pass urine constantly and hardly passing any, I have had uti before where it was E.coli in the uterus hence why Im thinking its the same again.. anyone have any ideas? Im concerned obviously because i did have unprotected sex stupidly enough!
any comments would be great
thanks

Hello!
Frequent urination and pain while urination could be due to several reasons. Urinary tract infection is the commonest possibility. Urinary tract infections are common in females. Frequent urination can also be a sign of early pregnancy .You may need a urine examination. Drink plenty of fluids to flush out the bacteria from the urinary tract. In case you miss your periods take up urine pregnancy test. . It is best to discuss your concerns with a local health care provider and get your doubts clarified. Do keep us updated on how you are doing.
Take care and regards!
