Testing and sonogram: of the uterine lining would be helpful and possibly reassuring. If this the first time you have had irregularity in flow, less worrisome.' If you always have irregular or absent flow for 10 or more years, testing and evaluating the uterine lining become more important. Not likely a UTI.
