Why Do I Urinate Frequently And It Hurts For 3 Days?
I want to ask why I have been urinating continuously for 3 days so I can’t sleep and my vagina feels very painful and the volume of urination is very small.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Urination that is very frequent, infrequent, and painful in women is often the result of a urinary tract infection. This infection is usually caused by bacteria that normally reside in the vagina or anus. These bacteria can rise to the urinary tract due to poor hygiene, penetration of the penis during sexual intercourse, or certain medical procedures, such as urinary catheter placement, and so on.
Not only urination disorders, urinary tract infections can also make sufferers experience fever, nausea, chills, muscle and joint pain, weakness, fatigue, decreased appetite, and so on. Not infrequently, symptoms of urinary tract infection will appear accompanied by abnormal vaginal discharge.
It could also be that the complaints you experience arise due to other causes, such as bladder stones, cystitis (bladder infection), overactive bladder, bladder cancer, diabetes, consuming too much caffeine, alcohol, exposure to cold environmental temperatures, stress, excessive anxiety, etc.
If the complaint has been going on for 3 days, you should immediately consult a doctor. That way, further evaluation can be carried out, not only through a physical examination, but also urine tests, blood tests, or X-rays and ultrasound. If it is true that the cause is an infection, generally the doctor will prescribe drugs such as antibiotics, and other drugs according to the complaints you feel.
At this time, in order to reduce symptoms, you are advised to drink more, especially water. Limit caffeine consumption, avoid alcohol. Don't get used to holding back the urge to urinate. Only engage in safe and responsible sexual activity. Always clean your intimate organs using good quality water, no need to use feminine organ fragrance products.
Hope it helps ya..
