I am 18 years old and for the past year, I experience a week or two of pure pain when having to use the restroom. It burns when I pee and at times it has itched, stung, and I've had thicker discolored discharge. I am sexually active, and I have been for a long time, at least since I was 13. I thought that maybe it could be an STD, but all of the sexual partners I have had were virgins before we had sex. I know they are 100% clean when it comes to that department. I take an antibiotic every time I feel the slightest twinge of pain from down under. I was actually on the same antibiotic for something else, but I somehow developed some sort of infection while on it?? I'm not sure what this is?? I know I have had yeast infections in the past, I get them at least every three months or so. I have more recently just been being UTIs once or maybe even twice a month. It hurts to pee and after I go, I have to go more. It's odd because when I go to the doctor and they do the sample in a cup, they say that I don't have a yeast infection or a UTI but that I have either 500 or 5000 white blood cells (I can't remember) in my urine, which I'm apparently not supposed to have. I never payed attention in heath class, please don't judge me! Anyways, I clean myself after intercourse, I actually usually jump into the shower. I try my best to wipe front to back and I would like to say I am a decently clean person. I take showers once or maybe twice a week. I usually let my hair take a rest from being shampooed since it's dyed. Could not taking showers be a cause for my pain and discomfort?? Going back to the whole sexually active thing, I'm not on the pill, I read stuff about UTIs and yeast infections while taking forms of birth control, but I take no birth control, and I don't use condoms. I know that isn't the best combo, but my boyfriend is pretty confident in his pullout game. Getting back on track, I thought I would make a little post here because I would like to know if anyone has any idea of what this could be? I just want the pain to stop. I want to be able to pee without fearing pain. It's a simple body function, it's not much to ask!! It really effects my work, it effects my relationship, it just really effects me as a person.
