It hurts when I urinate and only a little comes out sometimes when I feel like I need to go.  I'm also on my period, please help :(not sexually active?

See Your Doctor Now: Your symptoms strongly suggest that you may have a Urinary Tract Infection. It is important to have an exam. Urine tests are also important to confirm infection and identify the infecting organism which is usually bacteria. You do not have to be sexually active to develop a UTI and females are more prone due to anatomical differences that favor infection. See your doctor now for prompt treatment. ...Read more

I started urinating blood and it hurts everytime, 
like i had more urine in my bladder but nothing comes out.2 days later, got my period ? Help!

Painful urination: Blood in the urine is never normal. Urinary frequency, painful urination and a feeling like you're not emptying your bladder are common symptoms of bladder infection. You should see a physician and have a urine culture performed. In the mean time, over-the-counter analgesics may help. Ask your pharmacist to point them out to you. ...Read more

My period blood smells sweet and my stomache hurts but my discharge is normal and so is urination. Should i be worried??

My period blood smells sweet and my stomache hurts but my discharge is normal and so is urination. Should i be worried??

If that's all, no: By stomache I assume you mean the general abdomen as opposed to the stomach in the mid upper abdomen. If the pain is crampy and subsides to a lower level, that is usually ok, if you can press on the area gently with only mild pain, appetite is decent, no fever, chills, burning urination, and no pregnancy then this is likely menstrual cramps. Abdomen pain can fool anyone, don't ignore changes ...Read more

Vaginal pain: Use of antibiotics can cause fungal infections. There are more potential causes for this pain/irritation than you have mentioned. If the pain persists, see your healthcare provider for an exam and specific treatment. ...Read more

I am peeing blood I bleed like Im on my period when I move my urine color is like a dark red and I have blood clots when I wipe should I go to the ER?

I am peeing blood I bleed like Im on my period when I move my urine color is like a dark red and I have blood  clots when I wipe should I go to the ER?

Yes: If you are seeing large quantities of blood and blood clots you should go to the emergency room. The color of the blood suggests bleeding from the kidney area as long as you're sure it's not vaginal bleeding. Large clots can occasionally block the bladder outlet and block urination. Kidney stones,tumors,glomerular inflammation need to be ruled out. ...Read more

I'm one week late on my period, can I use evening urine and get an accurate result? Bc I tested today at 5 pm and got negative

I'm one week late on my period, can I use evening urine and get an accurate result? Bc I tested today at 5 pm and got negative

Not as good: Try, if negative could be wrong, and repeat in the morning, and if negative then, it still could be wrong, See doc if no period and negative. Your doc can do blood test and check you over for other reasons for missed periods. Different home pregnancy tests vary in accuracy. But they perform best when you follow the instructions for the test you choose to use. No test is foolproof. ...Read more

I'm on my period, but it is very light very little on pad but when I urine it wants to come out. My period has always been regular?

Light "period" ??: Light bleeding can be due to pregnancy. First obtain a serum HCG test from your healthcare provider. It will probably be negative. At age 48, a woman's periods begin to be irregular, and "skipped periods" are more common. Ask your provider to also obtain a test for "FSH" which can be elevated at this stage of life. ...Read more

I get pain during urination when i'm also on my period?

I get pain during urination when i'm also on my period?

Dysuria: Burning on urination with your period can be due to a few things. If you use a tampon the insertion or some of the chemicals can be irritating. Try using a different brand or using a pad instead and see if your burning goes away. Some women get urinary symptoms around their period from hormone shifts but these usually start a couple of days before you should see your md to look for urethritis ...Read more

Hi, I have cloudy urine and I'm due for my period. Is this normal?

Hi, I have cloudy urine and I'm due for my period. Is this normal?

Phosphate crystals?: Your selection of "phosphate" as a topic tag suggests you might already know the answer. The main cause of cloudy urine indeed is presence of phosphate crystals, which results from various combinations of fluid and food intake. It's harmless. You can check it out by adding 1-2 drops of acid (e.g. vinegar) to a sample of cloudy urine. If phostphates, it will immediately turn crystal clear. ...Read more

I have had cloudy urine now the past few times I have gone: no pain, odor, odd colors. I think I'm close to starting my period too. Sign or problem?

I have had cloudy urine now the past few times I have gone: no pain, odor, odd colors. I think I'm close to starting my period too. Sign or problem?

Cloudy urine: You probably are fine. It probably reflects being slightly dehydrated, increased physical activity, or something ingested (commonly vitamins, some medications, and foods). Increased frequency is something to watch for. I agree with you that it may well be linked to your period. If it persists, I would recommend follow up with your local physician to rule out possible infection or diabetes. ...Read more

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more
