UTI questions...never had one before now

It seems I have UTI that doesnot present " normal" symptoms. I've have never ever had one before so I don't know right off the bat how it's supposed to feel. My Dr has me on 2 anti biotics and pyridium. I've been on this for really only 1 day now. The
" P" problems is better but here's my question:

I feel absolutely SCALDED in around my vaginal area and in fact the vag mucosa tissues, the roof of the vag., @ are a bit swollen themselves. Has anyone else had this type of " swelling" and if so WHEN does it back off?? I know I'm impatient here but this has been worse than the surgery. I even told the Dr to throw all the anti-biotics he had @ me as I'd gladly take an old fashioned yeast infection to get over this crap.

Any ANY input would make me feel better. I worry about another prolapse as that's what 1st came into my head with this vag swelling...but Dr say " no prolapse".

(((Lulu))) ya know, that really sounds more like vaginal dryness than a UTI. Has your DR tried you on some vaginal estrogen to see if that helps? Here's a link to more info about vaginal dryness and its treatment:

vaginal dryness

I hope this helps!

To me it sounds like an infection in your vagina which can happen if you don't wipe from front to back. Did your doc look at your vagina at all? Did you mention this to him/her? Did the doc do a urine test for the UTI or just listen to your complaints?

Tried the estrogen cream.....not the problem and hormone levels are fine. And yes, I know how to wipe my "hiney" correctly.
And my Dr has heard nothing but my complaints, in person. And he could probably identify from a car wreck just by my "pu-nannie "alone, as he's seen it enough in the week!!!

I'm well into my anti bio's now and things are feeling a bit better. I was just feeling to see if anyone had " like" symptoms as this just came on so fast.

UTI questions...never had one before now

Hi Luludelane,

I have had some UTIs in my past. Used to call it the "honeymooner's disease". Whatever that means. Mine came on VERY sudden also Like I would feel great one minute and then the next..."what the *&%$#@& is that burning feeling???"

It sounds like you might have some irritation from toilet paper since with a UTI, we run to the restroom more.

From what I have read, a UTI is fairly common. Women are more prone to get them. It sounds like it comes down to bacteria getting in the vaginal tract area.

I also read that getting the vagina area more "alkaline" than acidic can help. That comes with medicine. And the old standbys... drink LOADS of water and cranberry juice can help. Also, caffeine should be restricted more. And wear cotton undies for breathing room. And no "wild thing"...if you know what I mean!!

I have also read on H.S. that a UTI can be more common following a hyst.

Hope that helps.

UTI questions...never had one before now


I had a bicornate uterus and had to have a cystoscope done as with a bicornate uterus tends to come a lot of kidney and bladder deformations....I had none but had to have the tests anyway. So other than than no other " work" was required...they just had to " check under the hood" really good. BUT..they really don't know if you have a bicornate until they get in and see it....or at least mine never showed up. But...overall the surgery was easy for me...text book in fact....just this UTI.
AND...it did start after I was cleared for sex!!! So I guess after 17 yrs the " honeymoon" is still on!!! But this has brought it to a screeching halt to be sure!!!! I did find some cranberry pills that I'm taking with my meds as I can't stand the taste of cranberry juice. All I can say for me is OUCH.... I told my Dr that my hiney felt like one of those baboons you see on the Nature Channel!! He fell out in the floor!!!
