Dark vaginal discharge, UTI might've lead to kidney infection, vomited yesterday w/severe headache out of the blue on the pill&had unprotected sex.?

Possible STD, PID?: I'm worried you have an STD, like chlamydia or gonorrhea and maybe pelvic inflammatory disease (PID, fallopian tube infection). Brown vaginal discharge goes along with STD more than UTI, and gonorrhea and chlamydia can cause urinary burning, frequency, etc. Like a UTI. Abdominal pain from PID can be confused with kidney infection. Whichever you have, this is serious. See a doctor or clinic ASAP. ...Read more

Vaginal rash - six weeks ago - UTI turned into kidney infection - now have the same rash again but much worse - can it be another UTI and if so why?

Vaginal rash - six weeks ago - UTI turned into kidney infection - now have the same rash again but much worse - can it be another UTI and if so why?

Probably not: UTI does not cause rash in the vulva (I think you are referring to it as vagina). However, the antibiotic used for the UTI can give, as a side effect, a yeast infection in the vaginal area. If you are having no urinary symptoms, it is unlikely to be a UTI. You should be checked by your doctor or your gyn, who will also check a urine sample and diagnose the rash. I hope this helps. ...Read more
