Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,

When you say tests came back negative are you referring to an office urine analysis or one done in a laboratory?

urine test and a vaginal culture both negative
Expert:  Michael Salama replied 4 months ago.

For the next step, I would recommend a kidney and bladder ultrasound which can be ordered by your doctor.

Till then, I would discontinue sugary drinks and caffeine as much as you can as they can make your symptoms worse.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question.

Thank you!

you don't think its vaginal i do have hpv could this be the cause?
Expert:  Michael Salama replied 4 months ago.

HPV is typically asymptomatic.

A pap smear can easily detect HPV if you do in fact have it.
