I had a urethral dilation and cystoscopy about 6 days ago. The urologist didn't say anything to me after the procedure except it went well. On my discharge instructions it said not to have sex until you see your doctor again and they OK it. Well, I was feeling pretty good the other day meaning my bladder was fine. I was peeing every 4 to 5 hours (was 1-2 before dilation). And my boyfriend and I were cuddling on the couch and one thing led to another. He agreed that if it hurt or made me uncomfortable to stop. I was a little apprehensive about having sex because I knew in my head I was told not to. But he was really gentle and easy and sex didn't hurt one bit! I immediately went pee after (always do to avoid UTI) and there was some slight pink blood--nothing too serious.
Well, it's been 2 days since my endeavor and I'm back to where I was before the dilation. Sitting down long periods of time makes my pelvis feel like I'm being poked with a stick, there's a slight burning sensation which I can't tell if it's coming from my vagina or urethra. It doesn't hurt to pee or anything like that. But I am having the urge to go again quite frequently. I would like to think sex wouldn't be the cause of this but I honestly don't know. I woke up this morning with a lot of clear discharge down there and was quite itchy but after my shower, the itchiness went away.
I've had yeast infections before that have gotten so bad that the yeast has grown into my urethra causing burning and constant urination but I wanna be sure what I'm dealing with so I don't go to the doctor and say it's a yeast infection and it really not be; it's more of my bladder condition. I honestly don't know what to do. Is it possible my dilation didn't work? Would having sex too soon really be the cause of this?
