lately, i had a UTI (urethral tract infection) during my first day of period. Everything was fine with my period until the UTI occurred at night. but the next day, when the UTI was still there, my menstruation blood didn't come out at all. on the 3rd day, the UTI is getting better, but the blood still didn't come out. is there anything wrong with me?
thx for ur help.

Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

Illness and infections can affect your menstrual cycle by delaying ovulation which can delay or cause you to miss your menstrual all together. In general, most women who experience urinary tract infections do not have missed or late periods.

I hope this helps.

Be well,
