Why am I burning while peeing?

My boyfriend came home from college recently and we had had sexual activity. Then about two days after that, my period started. On the second day of my period, I starte to go pee more often, and had a harder time holding my pee in. And most shocking of it all, it burned. Particularly when I'm almost done peeing. It hurts but I can take the pain ok for now. I looked up what it could be and what I think it most likely is is either a UTI (Urinary Track Infection) or a Yeast Infection. I'm going to my local Planned Parenthood to get it checke out pretty soon, but I wanted a second opinion.

Recently though, my period is starting to not come as strongly. Or sometimes it's strong as sometimes it's too watery like Koolaid and not a lot is showing up on my pad either, or what IS showing up is a brownish color.

Please a thorough reply and help would be very much appreciated. Thank you very much!

Hello Anonymous,

Make a visit to your local Planned Parenthood as soon as possible.

Painful urination is most often caused by an infection or inflammation somewhere in the urinary tract. Herpes infection in the genital area, irritation of the vaginal tissue caused by bubble bath, perfumes or lotions, or vulvoginitis, such as a yeast or other infections of the vulva and vagina can cause painful urination.

A physical exam and any testing, such as a urinalysis and urine culture, can diagnose the cause of your urinary problems. Speak with the nurse or doctor at Planned Parenthood about the changes in your menstrual flow.

I appreciate your help. Do you think any if this is a sign of pregnancy? I just wanted to make sure.

No, painful urination is not a sign of pregnancy.
