|Okay for months and months now, I have been having really bad symptoms down there. I will, on and off, have a really painful burning sensation when I pee, and a really uncomfortable feeling like I have to pee more, but can't. A lot of times, my urine will have a really strong odor, and I've noticed that it isn't linked to any particular food that I eat. Intercourse also becomes very painful, and some positions are unbearable. It will either burn badly or just straight up HURT, like jabbing pain. Lately I've noticed that uncomfortable urination is more linked to caffeinated products, which makes sense, but it wasn't always like that. And still, most women can drink coke or coffee without getting that feeling >:O
A few months ago I went to my gyno and she did a test, and it was negative for any std's or yeast infection/UTI. i've had both a yeast infection and a UTI in the past, and it's similar to those, so I was sure that would be it. I was leaning more towards yeast infection bc those are more tolerable to live with than a UTI, and obviously i've been dealing with it for a while. it's possible that could have tested for other things, because I told her what my symptoms were, so I'm sure she tested for whatever she thought was a possibility..
I went to a doctor today and my urine sample was totally normal. She said I should definitely get a follow up with my gyno, who may refer me to a urologist. She wasn't really able to tell me what it could possibly be though..I also don't know what else my gyno could do. Shouldn't she have done all she could do already?
This is just so confusing. Is it possible a culture test could give different results now? My symptoms haven't changed or anything.
I used an at home urine sample test and the results came out a lot different than the doctors clean sample. I guess that's because I used the wipes to sterilize myself but..still, could the differences be so drastic? I guess that's just me being paranoid, I don't know if there's any way a medical urine test could go wrong.
I am a 19 year old female. If anyone can think of reasons that this could be happening that I haven't stated (like things that may be personal) just say them anyway, and if I have had it happen to me, I'll PM you about it.
