So the last three days I've experienced pain while urinating so I assumed I was getting a UTI. I've had twice before this year (I suppose it's because of sex) and it hurt like hell when I pee, sometimes with blood, and the urge to pee is almost unbearable.

I got some antibiotics but I didn't start taking them because I wasn't sure if it was an UTI.

However, it's been two days and I haven't experienced that urge, but the pain is still there... kind of.

I woke up just now, at 5am, and I felt a painful itching in my clitoris and vaginal entry that won't let me sleep. It burns when I pee and I bled a little now. My clitoris is swollen, red and VERY SENSITIVE, but the rest of the vulva seems ok. I'm concerned about my clitoris and the pain in my vaginal entry [Frown]

Is this an UTI? Should I start taking antibiotics ASAP? IS this something else entirely, or is it a combination of UTI with something else? I don't have a lot of experience with UTIs!

PLEASE HELP. I can't sleep [Frown]
Also, I'm sorry I'm not sure if this was the right board to post this in, feel free to move it.

It sounds like you need to get yourself in to a doctor asap. It could be a UTI, or it could be something else, but neither you nor we have the credentials to diagnose you. So, talking to a doctor should be your next step.
