Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms of abdominal cramps, burning with urination, spotting could indicate possible infective cause. Do not ignore your symptoms. Visit your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough evaluation (examination, vaginal swab/smear test, urine analysis) to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as indicated (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you in controlling your symptoms. If infective cause is suspected or detected, and if you are sexually active, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection, and avoid having intercourse while being on treatment. Avoid vaginal douching, or use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest.
Take care.
