Hi there, This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
do you still have the pain?
do you have any constipation?
which side is the pain left or right?
does it go to your back?
any recent sex?
unprotected and new partner?
see STI usually causes vaginal symptoms initially.
And also urinary symptoms should be present.
In some cases, which is not common, you can just get lower abdominal pain.
So, if you are in doubt, testing is advised.
ok that is reassuring
chances are you do not have any sti
your symptoms are likely constipation related.
Diverticulitis --inflamation of colon can cause this.
yes that is also unlikely
yes that is little concerning.
black color can be due to the blood commonly seen with infection --diverticulitis.
you still need to see your GP for a clinical exam and antibiotics.
ok I understand --but you know we do not prescribe right?
at least i can reassure you this is not sti
but this can still be a different infection like diverticulitis.
not sex related
you can try a stool softener like Metamucil meanwhile.
For pain, Neurofen can be tried
do not worry
you will get well soon.
since you already waited a week, this is not overreaction.
