Lately I've been having alot of issues. It kind of when like this;
And now back to yeast.
Through all of these I've had near constant urethral pains.
I know I don't drink nearly enough water as I should, and that might be part of the problem.
Is it normal to have the same sting when peeing and after with all these issues?
Before this super long round of issues started (which was around october), I used to occasionally have painful urination and aftermath. D: Is this normal?
I've asked my doctor if part of it could be urethral damage, but I was only tip toeing around what I was too awkward feeling to ask.
I know it sounds weird, but I've tried urethral insertion before. ._. It probably wasn't the best idea, but I was curious to try it.
I didn't exactly have access to what I probably should have been using to preform it, so that might have damaged my urethral tract? >__< I'm hoping it all just goes away, at least for a while, so I don't have to bring it up with my doctor.
Solved! Go to Solution.

i guess it would depend on exactly what you used to put in there.
if w/e it was, was rough or had rough edges or something you could've scratched the inside of it.
if it hasn't got better in a couple of days, it'd prob be a good idea to get it checked out

Ok. It sounds like you might have a hormone issue because bacaterial vaginosis and yeast infections are caused by the pH of your vagina changing, which can be caused by hormones. Those are bacteria you have in your vaginal tract all the time, but they can only grow in certain situations. The problem is that when you have a UTI you get antibiotics, which is what leads to the yeast infection. Fluconazole is used to treat a yeast infection, but it also changes the pH of your vagina and that can lead to the BV. So, it's just a viscious cycle. With all of these chronic infections, you could have damage within your urethra. If you're not talking to a GYN, you should. You might also want to ask to be referred to a nephrologist, because the issue really stems from the UTI issues.
The chronic UTI can also be related to your diet and personal health habits. The one thing I will say that you should NEVER do is insert ANYTHING into your urethra. First of all, it's designed to be a one-way street. It's not designed to accomodate anything other than urine. It does NOT stretch and by inserting anything into your urethra, you run the risk of seriously damaging it (leading to incontinence, which means you will lose the ability to control your urination), creating scar tissue, perforating it...all of which can lead to serious infections. Not to mention, you already have SO many issues with infections anyway, I can't imagine why you're trying to create more problems.

I do have a lot of hormonal imbalance. So that's surely part of why I got the BV and two yeast infections. I think the Yeast is gone for now, I hope it stays that way. @.@
If any of the problems return, I'll see a GYN and or a Nephrologist.
As for the urethral play...^_^;; Yeaaah, it definitely wasn't one of my better ideas. At the time I tried it, none of the issues I have now had been active. ._. I can assure you I won't ever be attempting it again .

If you know you have a hormonal issue and all these chronic "lady part" issues, it's probably not a bad idea to see a GYN anyway, even if the symptoms don't come back. I'm sure your usual doctor is well-equipped to treat your issues, but I think a doctor who actually specializes in these kinds of things is a better choice. That's just my opinion though
