Hi. I'm a 19-year-old woman, and I have been sexually active for the past month (monogamously). Last night I had sex, but in the middle, I had to get up and use the restroom. He and I continued afterward, and nothing seemed wrong at the time. But today, I have had a little pain in the pelvic area and it's been taking less for my bladder to feel full. What's more, there's blood in my urine. Is there something wrong? Should I be worried? Thanks.

Sounds like it could be a UTI (urinary tract infection). Those don't go away without antibiotics and can spread to your kidneys, so you'll want to see a healthcare provider as soon as possible to get a proper diagnosis and treatment.
