    I am 16 years old and I just lost my virginity. I have a urinary track infection. It burns when I go to the bathroom and now inside my vagina begins to sting. It is like a shocking pain. Sometimes it is here and then it goes away. It stings a lot it makes me want to cry how bad the pain is.

    Dear Nicole,

     

    I'm so sorry to hear that you're not feeling well. Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are so uncomfortable! I've been getting UTIs ever since I lost my virginity at 16. I've definitely shed plenty of tears because of the pain, so please know that it's completely normal to be feeling the way that you are. You should feel MUCH better after you've taken a few rounds of your antibiotics but make sure you take all of them, whether or not you're feeling better. Some of us get more frequent UTIs than others. I've had approximately 10 while my best friend has only had one. The good news is that there are things you can do to lower your chances of getting UTIs in the future, such as always wiping front to back when you use the bathroom, drinking lots of cranberry juice, and getting up and peeing immediately after you have sex.

     

    Given the symptoms you've described, it's possible that you have contracted an STD. However, in my opinion, it's unlikely that you have anything but a UTI. Dr.  Grayson wrote a couple great blogs that you should check out so that you can determine if you have Herpes symptom and decide if it's time to get tested. Click on the links below to read them:

    Is it Herpes, Or Another STD?

    Hi there,

     

    If its the same stinging I have had for the past two years then its because of all of the chemichals in your tampons, toilet paper and laundry detergent. Its something the doctors "cant figure out". The truth is our tampons are bleached with chlorine and have other chemical additives and same goes for our toilet paper. Our laundry detergent has carcinogens in it. Since I've switched over to organic non-chlorinated tampons, organic toilet paper and organic laundry detergent my sting has finally gone away after two years !!!! Thanks doctors-youre alot of help! NOT. we need to start questioning what corporations are putting in our products.
