The views expressed by me are for educational purposes only and do not establish a doctor patient relationship.

Mysticdoc :

Hello,

Mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

Mysticdoc :

Urinary tract infection is the likely cause of your symptoms.

Mysticdoc :

The infection can be caused by the normal bacteria like E coli.

Mysticdoc :

This is not sexually transmitted.

Mysticdoc :

On the other hand, sexually transmitted diseases like gonorrhea, chlamydia are also possible.

Mysticdoc :

In either case, the infection can be fully treated with antibiotics.

Customer:

i used protection

Mysticdoc :

But first, you need to see your doctor for urine tests.

Customer:

how urgent is it?

Customer:

i have my exams and all

Mysticdoc :

Ok, in that case, you ma have UTI --which can occur without being sexually transmitted.

Customer:

the other 2 diseases wont happen if you used protection, right?

Mysticdoc :

It is a simple test and treatment yields fast resukt.

Mysticdoc :

Yes unlikely.

So,you should address this early.

Untreated infection can cause complications.

Customer:

can this wait for the next 4 days at least?

I will suggest earlier.

However, if symptoms do not worsen, you may try that
