Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Seems like you are having a urine infection.
You need to be seen for this. You need to have a urine test done.
You will most likely require an antibiotic for this.
I would like that you should be seen in the ER.
ER = A&E
what could be the cause of this doc?
Are you sexually active?
One sexual partner?
So the most likely cause would be a STD
Could be chlamydia or gonorrhea infection
Could be infection with other bugs like E. coli.
We cannot say for sure without testing.
So you require some tests that I mentioned and will most likely require an antibiotic.
right but i went protected only early december
not wearing in early december
But it does sound like an infection.
Unprotected oral sex can also cause STIs
std or e.coli.
Those are the possibilities
If you have had protected sex then E coli is more likely.
so what must be done and what are long terms of this.
You need to be prescribed an antibiotic.
For that you would need to go to the A&E
so a test needs to be done ?
simple urine test
once you contracted the std or e.coli how long does it take to show up in the symptom?
Well it will be shown instantly if you do tests like urine smear to see the bug in the microscope.
antibody tests do take a few weeks to be postivie
i mean in your body ?
Symptoms show up in a week or so
So it means that if you have had a sexual encounter in the past week or two that may be the cause.
how is e.coli contracted?
E coli is a bug that is present in the stool.
So it can be transmitted by poor hygiene or even by anal sex.
this discharge and pain came this morning all of a sudden nothing yesderday.
That is how it starts
all of a sudden
and long do you think iv'e had this infection?
One week to two weeks I think
the longest ?
Up to three weeks may be
but usually its around one to two weeks time
ive had protected sex all the time so if where els if could get it from my misses?
STIs is not the only cause.
Like I mentioned it could be e coli
I have had this kind of infection three times in my life
and everytime it was e coli
oh so the best is to test it.
get it tested and treated
