Okay so I have a serious question. For the last couple months, I've been thinking I have a yeast infection.. I've tried some medicins and it hasnt gone away. Is that what could be causing the UTI? me & my boyfriend did have dry sex and when we were "re-enacting" sex, I think maybe the bacteria could've gotten pushed back up in my vagina. I know, sounds gross. But I know you guys understand.

Thanks [Smile]

Hi mia,

Have you consulted a healthcare provider about this?

Was the healthcare provider the one who suggested taking medicines for a possible yeast infection?

if you haven't yet talked to a healthcare provider, that needs to be your first step.

Yes. I took the medicine. Now I'm on AZO urinary tract infection meds. From over the counter. My aunt works in the medical field and she's gonna get me some antibiotics. I was just asking if that is a logical cause. Because I've been having to pee every 15 minutes!! And its getting annoying!!

And when I do pee, its not like my whole bladder is emptying. It's just annoying feeling like I can't get it all out

This really is something you need to consult with a healthcare provider about. Not only are we not healthcare providers, but no one, healthcare provider or not, can diagnose you online.


What I'm not clear on is whether you first consulted a healthcare provider before taking the yeast infection medicine.

Unless you have been seen by a healthcare provider and you've been specifically diagnosed, through tests and consultations, with a UTI it's not sound for anyone to be getting you medicines, as it's impossible to know exactly what you need to be treated for without a medical consultation with someone in person.

Here is some information from our site on UTIs and yeast infections.

Out, Out Damn UTI!
