I posted about a week ago. Just a follow up to my post if you remember it. Within 30 hours I took the ECP which it said was 98% effective. But now it has been one week later and i am bleeding lightly and then somewhat heavier so it is irregular. Now i found that this was common with taking the ECP. But i also think that i may have a UTI. Because i have all of the side effects of one and it sometimes hurts when i urinate. But after i drink water it doesnt this is a common UTI. So what do you think do you have any insight.

I think you should visit your local GP, GYN or clinician about the possible UTI, because it does indeed sound like you may have one brewing, and you'll need treatment.

Urinary symptoms are not common side effects of the MAP, so it's likely totally unrelated. But do get in there and get checked out: there's no need to be in pain when you don't have to be, and you don't want to let infections go untreated as they can spread.
