Hi Silent,

Welcome to EmpowHER! I'm sorry to hear that you're experiencing discomfort, & I hope we can get this figured out! How long has this been going on for? Are you familiar with Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)? Some of the symptoms include: 


  • Frequent and urgent need to urinate
  • Passing small amounts of urine
  • Pain in the abdomen or pelvic area
  • Burning sensation during urination
  • Cloudy, bad-smelling urine
  • Increased need to get up at night to urinate
  • Blood in the urine
  • Leaking urine
  • Low back pain or pain along the side of the ribs
  • Fever and chills
  • Nausea and poor appetite

    If these symptoms sound familiar, a doctor can diagnose for sure and begin treatment with antibiotics. Some alternatively choose to use Cranberry juice or capsules to treat UTIs, but not everyone agrees with that method.

    Please read our article for more information: https://www.empowher.com/urinary-tract-infection/content/cranberry-juice-does-it-really-help-prevent-urinary-tract-infections-utis

    Or our UTI page for more information:  https://www.empowher.com/condition/urinary-tract-infection

    Since the symptoms are unfamiliar to you however, this time it's best to visit a doctor, as you could be experiencing symptoms of something more serious.
