Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
You are monogamous.But are you sure your boyfriend is so? If not confirmed,I suggest you for an STD screening.It can be a herpes infection associated with urinary tract infection.So,you need a consultation and meet your doctor for an opinion regarding this.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
