Yeast infections and urinary frequency

Common Questions and Answers about Yeast infections and urinary frequency

yeast-infection

I am going back to my student health center to also have them check me for STD's and other infections such as BV and a yeast infection. It is important to note my symptoms seemed to increase the more 12-hours shifts I started working as a nurse. I am about to graduate with my 4 year nursing degree. Do you have any suggestions as to what to do? It is a total confidence downer when you "leak" urine and you're only 22 years old and have never had these sorts of problems before.
No blood, no sugar, no protein, etc. Examinations for yeast and bacerial infections were negative. Was treated for possible urethritis with 3 day dose of Levaquin of 250 mg, then 3 days of 500 mg Levquin, then switched to doxycline 200 mg a day. Just started 2nd day of doxycycline and feeling no better - not sure when I would notice anything. No recent sexual activity. Gyn thinks it's estrogen deficiency and wants me to start vagifem, but I am questioning the acute onset of this??
Ok well it's been almost a week and still no response here so guess I'm flying solo Anyways, so after ruling everything out and about to go insane my wife and I looked into yeast infections and I wanted to suggest this to any MALE sufferers out there that are experiencing itching inside the penis, around the head or tip and around their genitals accompanied by burning or pain when urinating and you have no clue what it is while at the same time you've exhausted all your options and have been ch
Have had urinalysis, urine culture, pelvic ultrasound of ovaries and bladder - all normal. No blood, no sugar, no protein, etc. Examinations for yeast and bacerial infections were negative.

1. Do my symptoms suggest UTI or yeast infections? 2. In my last visit to doc. for UTI, he told me its bladder infection this time. Can repeated UTI eventually cause damage to the kidneys? 3. Do my repeated UTI signify cancer? 4. What kind of tests should I try to determine what's wrong? 5. I also feel itching in the pubic area, but can't see anything. Can feel little bumps though. Doc suggest yeast infection, but treatment didn't work. What could it be?
The infection could be bacterial, yeast, or a combination. Usually urinary tract infections are accompanied by the symptoms of increased frequency of urination, and/or drinking, dribbling, or inappropriate urination. However, occasionally the only symptom is licking the vulvar area. It would be best to have your dog examined by a vet of course, but at least bring a fresh urine sample to your vet for urinalysis to help differentiate between a urinary tract infection and vaginal infection.

I'm having the same kind of problems but I don't know if it is my prostate or a urinary obstruction because I have urinary frequency, spraying of urine, not much pain. I'm on antibotics for prostatitis and I dont think it is working even though it has only been less than a week now. I did the scope and they found nothing.
I have passed a few kidney stones and had urinary tract infections but that has been going on for me the past 2.5yrs and followed closely by a Uro and Prim. Care Dr. I don't think that would be related at all to hypo vs. hyper, etc. Interesting thread ..
frequency of urination, frequency of urination at night (once per hour sometimes), ache in left testicular area, 2 nights of waking up sweaty, sore lower back/hips, and my semen volume was reduced, and often had what looked like strands of white material inside it. In the morning usually, I would have a few spots of a clear, mucus like discharge in my underwear.
I know that sounds like an old wives tale but i would literallty get one instantly if he drank beer and gave me oral without brushing his teeth and rinsing with mouth wash,,,, anyways i am now with a new partner for the past 3 months and we recently started having unprotected sex and I have had 2 yeast infections... hopefully the nuvaring will help me out here. I used an over the counter medicine the first time and now am on a prescription terconazole i think it's called.
Other mycoplasmas also aren't likely -- and on top of all this, even a test for these bacteria doesn't help, since they are normally present in the urinary tracts of entirely healthy men and women. Finally, genital yeast infections are not common in men, although yeast conceivably could explain your partner's discharge and irritation. Have you spoken with your GP about testing for herpes, either by direct viral test (culture, PCR) or a blood test?
So I keep waking up to go pee but its only one or two drops I feel no abdominal pain just the pressure and it makes me feel like I need to make a bowel movement also feel like my vagina is swelling up I don't know what it can be I've have uti before and yeast infections this doesn't feel like any of those and it so weird cause I've only had sex Three times this year please any suggestions
Ive been tested for STDs, Diabetes, and Urinary Infection, being all results negative. Im having in some weeks and Ultrasound. Sometimes i feel it might be psychological but I dont really think so because I really have to go very badly, no matter how stressed or relaxed i am. Or is it just that im going crazy? I dont think so. What ive had to do is drink few water, and forget about alcohol and coffee, although ive never really been a heavy drinker of neither of those.
I drank more when I got to the Dr's and I had to pee again 15min later. My urologist feels that these aren't infections but irritation and put me on a low-acid diet (on it for 3 days now, no caffeine for past 2 wks.) I don't have urgency anymore but almost always feel like I need to urinate. I never wait until my bladder is full to go because emptying those few ounces provides SOME relief.
A month later I experience severe UTI symptoms with exptreme pain, macrohematuria, frequency and what felt like a swollen bladder. I informed my Dr of my symptoms and refilled my Bactrim prescription. After taking this dose I felt an unbareable itching around my vagial area. I developed a bleeding ulcer on one side of my vulva and could not sleep for 2 nights. After 2 weeks my symptoms subsided. 2 weeks later I had the same UTI symptoms.
Finally, a site that lets me know my problem is not unique. Before stumbling upon this site, I could not find any reference to this problem on any medical website. I've had vaginal gas on and off for over 10 years. When it first began, my internist suggested it was sex related. I did not accept that. Since then, I consulted my GYN who suspected a fistula, even though the gas is odorless. I had an ultrasound, D&C, barium enema and colonoscopy, all of which failed to detect a fistula.
Also in this time they did a urinary culture, and a pap smear again including blood work. It came back for having a yeast infection and a UTI. Again this time i made them test me for all STD's. It was also negative. Monday i got very sick so i went to the doctor's and was told i had bronchitis, I took my z-pack as directed. He asked if i would allow him to do blood work to test me for lupus and other things.
After 2 days of this incident I am feeling some kind of a pain and whenever I pee the last drop is blood. More over the frequency of urination has increased and even when I finish urinating once the next moment I feel like I need to go again. Thou I don’t urinate the same quantity again I feel the urge to go which is uncontrollable. Please advise if there is a problem and what medication should I take to overcome this.
Everything burns, the Doc told me she saw yeast on 12-2, diflucan, and the otc vuvla cream.. moinstat, which I used once or twice a year when I had yeast infections since I was about 20. It stung everything and the diflucan fixed nothing. I went back and asked for an std test, i have been seeing 2 guys for the last 2 months, since my soon to be ex husband is out of the pic.
I am sure you can relate to that feeling when sex is getting really good and then suddenly you gasp with pain because just by moving your legs a particular way he has stretched and split the skin again!! I would like to get to the cause here. I've had reoccuring bladder and yeast infections and now this strange paper cut problem. I use Canestan (might be english brand) which might be a cause. My perinium seems to be short, meaning my vagina and anus are quite close together.
Last week my wife got 4 red bumps in her vaginal area two of them went away and the other two are almost gone. She is prone to getting urinary tract infections and yeast infections. None of the bumps are blisters or open sores. They are just red bumps. I have gotten two red bumps half way up my scrotum and I have a slight burning sensation when I finish urinating. She went to the doctor today and they did a swab and the results wont be available for a week.
While I shudder to think of the pain involved in the urination process (besides pressure in the pelvis and frequency, the sharp, shooting pains and sharp pain while urinating is horrible), I'd like to get a definitive answer and get this thing out of my body so I can just move on and get going. It's been about a month and a half now. Thanks again!
I have now convinced myself that i have urinary frequency and urgency (another symptom of MS) becuase I go to the toilet about every 2 hours during the day, but then I realise that I have done this my whole life!!!! I guess my only worry is that having a tingling sensation in the extremeties is NOT normal and that it indicates something no matter how minor or major is wrong.
It is a primarily female syndrome in which women suffer from irritative bladder symptoms (urinary frequency, urgency, burning , and a hesitant or slowed urinary stream) in the absence of any objective urologic findings.In this the diagnosis can be made only by the proper collections of urine specimens from both the urethra and the bladder. These specimens will reveal the presence of white blood cells in the urethral washings, while the midstream (bladder) specimen will be free of cells.
Then, we spent a third weekend together. Again with the condoms and Astroglide, and again I have a lot of irritation and another yeast infection. I also have a circular patch which seems unmistakably to be ringworm, although I've never had this before. These new fungal infections are worrying me, I hope it's just that I should stay away from Astroglide & its ingredients. Medical enlightenment & advice needed!
Bones start to ache, eyes start to sting, neck starts becoming sore and stiff and my lower back started to ache. I went home and just lazed about all night watching TV. Got up for work on Thursday morning and felt TERRIBLE all day long. All of the above symptoms were worse than the day before and now I was having lower right abdominal pain. I thought to myself 'great ANOTHER UTI'. Every movement I made just killed me, was in so much pain.
Prostatitis may present with straining in urination, increased urinary frequency , urinary discomfort and tenderness in the area between the scrotum and anus. A fungal infection may cause prostatitis but rarely so. Usually , bacterial infections are still the more common cause.
I don't buy it. as far as the UTI and yeast infections ago there constant, I've been on every antibiotic known to man nothing works. In fact the problems have gotten worse. I just want answers. I'm sick of doctors looking at me like i'm crazy or like i'm making it up. It's to the point I don't even want to see or go back to the doctor. Because they send me home with 6 prescriptions for things that DO NOT WORK. the drugs make me sick.
