Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Seems like you are having a urine infection.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You need to be seen for this. You need to have a urine test done.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You will most likely require an antibiotic for this.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I would like that you should be seen in the ER.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

ER = A&E

Customer:

what could be the cause of this doc?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you sexually active?

Customer:

yes.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

One sexual partner?

Customer:

few

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So the most likely cause would be a STD

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Could be chlamydia or gonorrhea infection

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Could be infection with other bugs like E. coli.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

We cannot say for sure without testing.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So you require some tests that I mentioned and will most likely require an antibiotic.

Customer:

right but i went protected only early december

Customer:

not wearing in early december

Dr. Shahzad MD :

But it does sound like an infection.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Unprotected oral sex can also cause STIs

Customer:

std or e.coli.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Those are the possibilities

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If you have had protected sex then E coli is more likely.

Customer:

so what must be done and what are long terms of this.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You need to be prescribed an antibiotic.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

For that you would need to go to the A&E

Customer:

so a test needs to be done ?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes urinetest

Dr. Shahzad MD :

simple urine test

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Anymore questions?

Customer:

once you contracted the std or e.coli how long does it take to show up in the symptom?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Well it will be shown instantly if you do tests like urine smear to see the bug in the microscope.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

antibody tests do take a few weeks to be postivie

Dr. Shahzad MD :

positive*

Customer:

i mean in your body ?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Symptoms show up in a week or so

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So it means that if you have had a sexual encounter in the past week or two that may be the cause.

Customer:

how is e.coli contracted?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

E coli is a bug that is present in the stool.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So it can be transmitted by poor hygiene or even by anal sex.

Customer:

this discharge and pain came this morning all of a sudden nothing yesderday.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

That is how it starts

Dr. Shahzad MD :

all of a sudden

Customer:

and long do you think iv'e had this infection?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

One week to two weeks I think

Customer:

the longest ?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Up to three weeks may be

Dr. Shahzad MD :

but usually its around one to two weeks time

Customer:

ive had protected sex all the time so if where els if could get it from my misses?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

STIs is not the only cause.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Like I mentioned it could be e coli

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I have had this kind of infection three times in my life

Dr. Shahzad MD :

and everytime it was e coli

Customer:

oh so the best is to test it.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes

Dr. Shahzad MD :

get it tested and treated

Customer:

thanks
