It sounds like you should go to the doctor for an evaluation. This could be a sexually transmitted disease or a urinary tract infection. Both of which can be easily treated with antibiotics.
I advise to to avoid sex until tested at your doctors office and also to check with any of your sexual partners if they had any symptoms.
Thanks very much. I did go to the Doctor and she did a urine analysis that showed an infection. She seems to think a UTI or bladder infection or possibly a prostate infection. She prescribed Cypro i believe. Does that make sense or should i worry further?
Urinary tract infections do produce symptoms such as you describe, and Cipro in one of the preferred medication.
Is it possible that an std or something is what showed the infection on the test or is it fairly likely that it is the uti or prostate infection.... (my brother had a prostate infection 3 weeks ago and had all the same symptoms im having.
It is far, far more likely that a UTI or prostate infection caused the urine test to be positive for bacteria. You should still ask your MD for STD testing, but this particular problem is more likely urinary or prostate given the circumstances.
You're welcome - Please let me know if there is anything else you need.
After the urine analysis went to the lab it has I am now told I do not have a bladder infection. What does this mean for me? I have been having a slight bit of pain around my kidneys and lower back? I still have discomfort in the area of my prostate and have a frequent urge to urinate. This all started after a night of heavy drinking could that be the cause. My doctor is away for 2 weeks and this is really concerning me. I will get tested but I am very worried. Would the urine analysis at the lab have shown if it were certain sti's? or what could be the cause of the initial test showing infection and the lab showing none?
