I'm having a little problem. I am just nearing the end of my period and all of a sudden, when i am peeing, i am having these pains, like someone is punching me in the stomach. Why am I getting these sudden sharp pains? Does it have anything to do with my period?

Pain when urinating is generally because of a urinary tract or bldder infection, caused by bacteria in any number of ways.

If you are having that pain, you need treatment -- it won't just go away. See a doctor.

Hi again. I just wondering if it has anything to do with the fact that in the last few months, i've had yeast infections? Do you think i have another one?

Urinary tract infections and yeast infections certainly can be related: they both arise from bacterial imbalances in the body.

Be sure when you see your doctor that you make mention of the yeast infections as well. It could be that the same thing is causing both of these illnesses.

Things to watch out for with both types of infections are any of the following:
- wiping when you urinate or defacate from back to front instead of front to back
- wearing sweaty or wet clothing, or underwear without natural fivers for long lengths of time
- nutritional imbalances, poor diet or food allergies
- not urinating before and after intercourse to help clear bacteria
- having one infection without treating it or completing treatment for it.

And don't just try to make it go away with cranberry juice. yeah, it helps, but you still need to see a doctor! otherwise, the infection can spread to your kidneys if left untreated.

ask about Levaquin®, it's a potent antibiotic used for treatment of UTIs. take for only 2 or 3 days.

Thanks for all the replies. I just got back from my doctor. I had a urine test and she gave me these pills i take twice a day for three days to relieve pain and infection. I already notice a bit of a difference since yesterday!! 8--)

Well, hooray.

Urinary tract infections are the absolute worst. For a while I had them chronically, and they made my nuts. Glad you're feeling better!

(P.S. While on any antibiotics, it's a good idea to eat plenty of yogurt. That helps keep you from getting a yeast infection from the antibiotics.)

Yogurt? I have probs with a lot of lactose products at one time. I just can't stomach them all the time. I probably will just try to take it in small amounts then. My lower back and my stomach is a bit sore. Could it be from the medication or from the actual bladder infection?

Sounds like that's still from the infection.

You can get non-dairy acidophilus tablets at any health food store, which gets rid of the dairy factor. You don't want to upset your tummy any more than it already is!

Well, the pain is gone from peeing but i still find myself being a bit itchy. I got medication to take. You take one dose (1 pill) and it is supposed to relieve the symtoms within 2 days. I feel that it hasn't worked yet bc i am still itchy down there. It's wierd. It's in spots where it's really hard to itch too and it's uncomfortable if i leave it. I am just a mess!!

Urinary Tract Infections SUCK! I got them REAL bad when i was younger and in forth grade i had an operation to have my uriters reimplanted (or something like that) and i was in the hospital for a week. But it beat having the infections all the time.
