So, I'm not really sure what's up at the moment. But basically since Friday-ish, I've had some very uncomfortable sensations in my pelvic area.

First off, Saturday-Sunday, I was feeling itchy... not in a painful way, just uncomfortable... and occasionally felt a little bit of a pain feeling near where my cervix feels like it is.

And then all the itchy feeling went away today. But my bladder has been all funky and I feel like I have to pee, but then it's hardly anything. And it makes my bladder hurt and still feel full.

... Do you guys have any clues? =/ I'm guessing not a Yeast infection or Urinary tract due to not having burning sensation during urination.

And Fig insisted that I ask you guys if you had an idea...

UTIs don't always have burning during urination as a symptom, and some of what you're describing does sound like it could be a UTI (abdominal pain can also happen with a UTI). But, as you know, we can't diagnose you over the internet, and whatever it is needs treatment, so get thyself to a doctor! [Smile]

Until you can get in to see a doc, stay hydrated - if it is a UTI you've got, that will help. You may also want to try taking cranberry tablets, as that can help with bladder discomfort as well. It's a good idea to put sex on hold until you get this figured out too, as sex with any kind of uro-genital infection can be really uncomfortable and can also make things worse.

Me too! I went to the doctor's today and they said it's very likely a UTI, they gave me some antibiotics.

They're thinking it might be a yucky yeast infection, too, but we're not sure... -sigh- Have to wait for the lab results.

But thanks for the help! I was just gonna ignore this for a few more days if Fig hadn't bugged me to ask you guys your opinion. I'm so glad I asked!
