Hi, about 3 weeks ago I started having pain at the end of urinating. The Dr gave me antibiotics for a suspected UTI. Although symptoms improved, they did not go away and the Urinary Sample they cultured came back showing no infection.
I treated myself for Thrush by taking the tablet from the Pharmacy and using the thrush cream. Again symptoms improved but did not go away.
I have been through an enormous amount of stress recently and this pain began 2 weeks before an operation I was due to have to remove a cyst off my ovary (on the day of the op it was deemed unnecessary) but my stress levels had been raised massively prior to this. I also had to have a smear test which came back clear, but I was all worried about the actual test too. (The pain started approx 3 days before the test).
I also had a miscarriage in September and have had a lot of bleeding and hormonal issues since then. I was put on Cilest (birth control pill) to control the bleeding – which it had started to do but then I had to come back off it in readiness for the Op. So hormones are mucked about.
The pain started 4 days after my husband and I had sex for the first time in 6 momths.
Please can you advise? There is no blood in my urine and the pain is at the end of urination - with some discomfort continuing after my first pee of the day.
I have just seen our local Pharmacist who thinks it is Cystitis, but I do not have a UTI?
Is it possible it is caused by anxiety? Also, when I religiously put the cream on for thrush, symptoms improved (I treated it for a week) but after 2 days without, this morning it is painful again.
Sorry this is so long, I’m thankful for anyone’s advice as this is making me really miserable now
