Is this a UTI or something else????????
 
Hi, I was wondering what are symptoms of uti's? Every month either right before or right after my period, I get this burning pain when I pee. It doesn't burn where the pee comes out but it burns on the skin between the pee hole and anus. Sorry to be so graphic, but couldn't explain it any other way. It last about a week everytime, and I just feel so yucky and raw the whole week. I take about 3 baths a day during that week, because of the way I feel. I constantly have urine dribble out when I walk, sneeze, cough ect. I have to wear pads all month long. I also feel like I'm having contractions and I'm not pregnant. Sometimes it even feels like I'm sitting on a golf ball. Please respond if anyone can help. thanks Becky

Try a water squeeze bottle while emptying your bladder. It may decrease the stinging on the skin.

What you are experiencing does not sound like a UTI. Just to make sure, when you start having discomfort and pain, you may want to take a urine test at your dr's office to see if it actually is an infection.

In general typical symptoms of UTI are: bladder pain, bladder burning, low back pain, fever, bladder spasms, blood in urine. Note that you donot have to have all symptoms.

Hope this helps.
