I was treated for BV but the soreness/need to urinate remained. UTI/Yeast/BV all test negative. Symptom absent during periods. What could cause this?

Two questions. Could a yeast infection cause one to urinate more often? And can a UTI affect a pregnancy test to come out false?

A UTI can certainly cause you to urinate more frequently because your bladder is irritated and wants to stay as empty as possible. A UTI has no effect on the accuracy of a pregnancy test. ...Read more

1-2 weeks...: If uti-causing bacteria are sensitive to antibiotic used, irritative voiding symptoms will improve within 2-3 days after taking it. Meanwhile, our body constantly strives to undergo self-healing as long as we provide suitable inside and outside environments for our body. So, in 1-2 weeks, most of healing process should be completed. If symptoms persist, one needs to consider something else. ...Read more
